Summary

The cross-cultural validity of an evolving conceptual model for parent behavior was investigated. Previous research studies suggest that the parent behavior dimensions of several conceptual models could be integrated by visualizing these dimensions as plotted on the surface of a sphere. The proposed spherical conceptual model was obtained using data from American subjects. Whether dimensions and conceptual networks could be generated from the data of french speaking belgians was investigated. Students from four public high schools in liege, belgium responded to the child's report of parent behavior inventory (cr-pbi). Correlation matrices were computed on each of the 18 scales for both parents and independently for boys and girls. The factor structure was used to generate a spherical configuration of parent behavior concepts. The factor structure for the belgian sample was found similar to the American. Three dimensions accounted for the major part of the common variance of the parent behavior scales in both cultures. These results provide a basis for coordination of the diverse conceptual schemes previously used to describe parent behavior. Additional cross-cultural studies appear to be highly desirable. (sk)
