SILVA, Leticia Oliveira da  and  PESSOA, Luciana Fontes. Parents' socialization goals of different family settings in Rio de Janeiro. Estud. pesqui. psicol. [online]. 2018, vol.18, n.3, pp. 831-849. ISSN 1808-4281.

Parents' socialization goals have its construction mediated by parental beliefs and therefore by culture, so it's considerably relevant that they be investigated according to the contexts in which they are inserted. In order to identify socialization goals of different family types, 40 parents resident in Rio de Janeiro with children between 7 and 11 years old participated in the study. They belonged to three family settings: 10 couples of nuclear families, 10 single mothers of parent families and 5 couples of remarried families. A sociodemographic questionnaire was used to collect data such as age, gender and family type. And the Inventory of socialization/development goals was used to identify the socialization trajectories. Results did not reveal significant differences between autonomy and relatedness in general sample (Z=-0,96; p>0,05). As well as did not reveal significant differences in comparison between mothers and fathers, nor in autonomy dimension (U=138,50; p>0,05) neither in relatedness dimension (U=163,50; p>0,05).. However, nuclear families tended to autonomous relational goals, whereas single patents and remarried families tended for relational goals. Therefore, these results suggest the relevance of considering the plurality of family arrangements in investigation of socialization goals.

Keywords : socialization goals; parental beliefs.
