Abstract:The behavioural development of children is influenced by the way they are brought up. We found little research that simultaneously studied multiple factors associated with aspects of parenting and their influence on children. Data of 14.544 families with children aged 0 until 12 living in the Twente region are analysed using linear regression analyses to estimate (a) the associations between five characteristics of parents or children and the degree of rules and (b) how the degree of rules and a corrective hit are associate with the indication of conduct problems and possible psychiatric disorders of children. Results suggest that non-western and western immigrants, low-educated mothers, middle and highly-educated fathers and parents with a low and middle income apply a higher degree of rules than native Dutch parents, middle and highly-educated mothers, low educated fathers and parents with a high income. We found that parents apply a higher degree of rules for sons than daughters. No association was found between the degree of rules and the indication of conduct problems and possible psychiatric disorders of children. Further, we found that children receiving a corrective hit when they break a rule have a higher indication of conduct problems and possible psychiatric disorders.
