PARDO, Maria Benedita Lima; CARVALHO, Margarida Silveira Britto de; FONTAINE, Anne Marie  e  FREITAS, Daniela Fonseca. Parenting Sense of Competence: a study of the psychometric properties of the scale with a Brazilian sample. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2018, vol.17, n.2, pp.243-251. ISSN 1677-0471.

The Parenting Sense of Competence Scale (PSOC) is an instrument that aims to evaluate the perception of parental competence in its functions. In Brazil, it is scarcely used and the objective of this research is to analyze the psychometric properties of PSOC. A sample of 151 mothers and fathers was used, the majority with education level up to high school and income up to two minimum wages. Confirmatory factor analysis of a proposed two-factor model (perception of efficacy and satisfaction) revealed a good overall fit to the data collected. Later analyses revealed that parental satisfaction increases with the parents' age, with the level of schooling and income. Taking into account the different validation processes conducted, it is recommended to use this version of PSOC in research and clinical practice with low-income people in Brazil.

Palavras-chave : parental competence; efficacy; satisfaction; confirmatory factor analysis.
