Abstract

rents (109 mothers, 109 fathers) of 109 middle-class preschool-age children were interviewed separately in individual tape recorded home interviews to assess whether either parent was prone to use assertion of power or inductive reasoning as disciplinary strategies. Fathers reported using more power-assertive disciplining strategies with their preschool-age children than mothers.
