A Comparative Study of Generative Fathering and Parenting Styles by Korean and American Fathers
Young Hwan Yee
This study compared generative fathering and parenting styles of 90 Korean and 73 American fathers who had a child 3 to 5 years of age. The data were collected through questionnaires on generative fathering, parenting styles, and father-child relationships. Results showed that Korean fathers were more involved in child rearing and perceived their parental responsibilities more strongly than American fathers; American fathers showed authoritative parenting and Korean fathers showed authoritarian parenting styles; among American fathers, the warmth factor contributed to the closeness between father and child; among Korean fathers, the control factor showed a negative relationship with conflict between father and child. These results suggest that the function of father`s control in child development might vary by cultural contexts.
