DASCANIO, Denise; FONTAINE, Anne Marie Germane Victorine; MARTURANO, Edna Maria  e  DEL PRETTE, Zilda A. P. Children and adolescents with lead poisoning: Childrearing practices and behavioral problems. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2016, vol.15, n.2, pp. 217-225. ISSN 1677-0471.

This study aimed to investigate childrearing practices as related to children and adolescents poisoned by lead, and their correlation with behavioral problems. The authors used a reduced version of the Inventory of Parental Styles (IEP) to assess parenting practices and the SSRS-BR for behavioral problems. Participants included 155 children and adolescents with an average age of 13 years who belonged to three groups: high blood-lead (GAP), low blood-lead (GBP) and a comparison group (GC); and their respective mothers and teachers. The results show GBP’s mothers used more inductive practices, less coercion and more neglect than the other two groups. The correlation analysis also indicated that inconsistent parenting strategies are associated with higher probability of emission of behavioral problems in the children. The results suggest an association between the childrearing practices adopted by mothers and lead contamination conditions of the children
