Title: Authoritarian parenting style in Asian societies : a cluster analytic investigation
Author: Ang, Rebecca P.; Goh, Dion Hoe-Lian
Copyright year: 2006
Abstract: While the beneficial effects of authoritative parenting style have consistently been demonstrated for Caucasian samples, these effects have not always been found for Asians. It appears that adolescents who perceived their parents’ style of parenting as authoritarian are not one homogeneous group. Cluster analyses performed for adolescents’ perceived mothers’ and fathers’ authoritarian parenting style using adolescents’ self-report scores on personal adjustment and social variables as the clustering variables found similar two-cluster solutions (maladjusted and well-adjusted). External validation evidence revealed that adolescents in the maladjusted cluster had poorer attitudes towards school and teachers compared to adolescents in the welladjusted cluster for both samples. These findings suggest that authoritarian parenting style could possibly have a different cultural meaning for Asians.
