NORONHA, Ana Paula Porto  y  BATISTA, Helder Henrique Viana. Characters strenghts and parenting styles: a correlational study. Est. Inter. Psicol. [online]. 2017, vol.8, n.2, pp. 2-19. ISSN 2236-6407.

This research sought evidence of validity for character Forces Scale (EFC) based on the relationship with other variables, checking correlations between Responsiveness Scale and Parental Requirement (EREP) and parenting styles. The participants were 24 couples (n = 48) belonging to a Catholic religious community of the state of São Paulo. Predominated in the sample qualities that create connections with the universe in search of meaning and the ones involving care of the other. Significant Pearson correlations between parenting styles and strengths ranged from 0.32 to 0.64. Curiosity, Kindness, and Gratitude showed correlations with three indices of EREP. The Responsiveness had more relations with the forces than Requirement. As practical implications of the study, parents and families counseling can be based on understanding of healthy psychological-emotional climate, since parents can contribute to the development strengths of children.
