MAIAI, Fátima de Almeida  and  SOARES, Adriana Benevides. Differences in fathers and mothers parental practices and 6th grade middle school children’s perceptions. Est. Inter. Psicol. [online]. 2019, vol.10, n.1, pp. 59-82. ISSN 2236-6407.

Abstract The study aimed to compare parents perceptions about its parental practices with their children’s perceptions. Participants were 6th grade students (n =154), from 9 to 15 years old (M = 11.5; SD = 0.8) and their parents (29 fathers and 125 mothers). The instrument was the Inventário de Estilos Parentais (IEP). The results showed differences in the parental style of mothers, fathers, and the evaluation of their kids on their parents styles. Mothers evaluated their parental style more positively, whereas the fathers evaluated their style more negatively, in comparison with their children’s perception. The results reflect the importance of the parental function practiced by mothers and fathers in predominantly non-nuclear families, which indicates that positive practices can develop social skills that enhance parents-children relationships and foster for interactions more relevant in the future.
