Bezrukova O.N., Samoilova V.А. Authoritarian syndrome in mothers’ child-rearing culture. Sotsiologicheskie issledovaniya [Sociological Studies]. 2016. No 8. P. 43-53
Based on the study of understanding parenting practices, father’s role and childrearing
concepts we are considering manifestation of authoritarian syndrome in parenting
culture of mothers. The results of the study showed that mothers opting for obedience can
be characterized as authoritarian, and mothers focused on inquisitiveness are acting as
regulators. Mothers that value sociability are acting as protective authoritarians. We are
offering ways of correcting authoritarian attitudes of parents.
