El objetivo de este estudio fue analizar la relación entre el afecto, la aceptación, la comunicación emocional, la transmisión de valores y la intervención moral de los padres, y las emociones y conductas morales (empatía, culpa, conducta internalizada y reparación) de los hijos; y conocer qué variables familiares explican la internalización moral en niños y niñas. La muestra estuvo formada por los padres y madres de 485 sujetos (244 niños y 241 niñas) de 6 a 8 años. Se encontró que la principal variable predictora de la capacidad de control de la conducta en las niñas fue el afecto materno, mientras que en los niños lo fueron la comunicación emocional y la transmisión de valores maternos. Las variables familiares que explican la internalización moral en los grupos extremos de niños y niñas fueron fundamentalmente el afecto, la comunicación emocional, la transmisión de valores y la intervención moral de padres y madres.

    ABSTRACT: The aim of this study was to analyze the reliability and validity evidence of scores on the Spanish version of Self-Description Questionnaire II (SDQ-II). The instrument was administered in a sample of 2022 Spanish students (51.1% boys) from grades 7 to 10. Confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) was used to examine validity evidence based on internal structure drawn from the scores on the SDQ-II. CFA replicated the correlated II first-order factor structure. Furthermore, hierarchical confirmatory factor analysis (HCFA) was used to examine the hierarchical ordering of self-concept, as measured by scores on the Spanish version of the SDQ-II. Although a series of HCFA models were tested to assess academic and non-academic components organization, support for those hierarchical models was weaker than for the correlated 11 first-order factor structure. Results also indicated that scores on the Spanish version of the SDQ-II had internal consistency and test-retest reliability estimates within an acceptable range.

    ABSTRACT: This paper analyzes the influence of parents’ educational practices on aggressive behavior during the last phase of primary education and the first cycle of secondary education, as well as the agreement between different measures of aggressiveness in a group of 326 male and female students aged 10 to 16 from a number of schools and high schools in Jaen (Spain). Educational practices analysed include affection/rejection by parents and three types of discipline-inductive, strict and indulgent. Aggressiveness in turn has been assessed from three tell-tale ways: the adolescent, their classmates and their teacher. The results of the study indicate that aggressiveness is better predicted by negative educational practices such as critique-rejection and rigid and indulgent discipline approaches. High levels of agreement are also found in aggressive behavior between different informants especially teacher and classmates.
