Abstract

Evidence is presented to show that six child rearing dimensions are common to both fathers and mothers. To do this the Child Rearing Practices Questionnaires (CRPQ) was factored separately for fathers (n = 169) and mothers (n = 224), and the factor structures compared. A rationale for the labels of these factors is given. The factors are (1) Punishment versus Reason; (2) Promotion of Dependence-Independence; (3) Rules and Regulations; (4) Spouse Involvement; (5) High Use of Rewards; (6) Preference for Younger Children. The final stages of development of the CRPQ are briefly described.
