Temperament, Parenting and Behavior Problems: A Cultural Difference

Usha Barahmand.

Abstract
Objective: To examine the relationship between temperament, parenting style and behavior problems in preschool children.
Method: Data was gathered from mothers of 600 preschoolers using the Child Behavior Checklist, Temperament, Temperament Measurement Schedule, Discipline Style Interview, and Parenting Practices Questionnaire.
Results: Most mothers reported using authoritative parenting styles as well as power assertive discipline. Behavior problems were found to be associated with low soothability but not with power assertive discipline. Permissive parenting and distractibility emerged as predictors of behavior problems. Conclusions: Findings indicate the desirability of further research into the concept of punishment in Iranian culture to distinguish it from that in western culture. (Rawal Med J 2008;33:217-220).

Key words: Parenting, behavior, temperament
