ABSTRACT 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 development of concern for others and externalizing problems were examined in young children with normative, subclinical, or clinical levels of behavior problems. There were no group differences in observable concern for others at 4-5 years of age. Children with clinical behavior problems decreased significantly in their concern by 6-7 years of age and were reported to have less concern at 6-7 years by mothers, teachers, and the children themselves, relative to other groups. Boys with clinical problems were more callous to others' distress at both time points. Girls showed more concern than boys across risk, time, and measures. Greater concern at 4-5 years predicted decreases in the stability and severity of externalizing problems by 6-7 years, and greater concern at 6-7 years predicted decreases in the stability of problems by 9-10 years. Finally, maternal socialization approaches predicted later concerned responding.

    ABSTRACT: Traditional theories of how children acquire values or standards of behavior have emphasized the importance of specific parenting techniques or styles and have acknowledged the importance of a responsive parent-child relationship, but they have failed to differentiate among forms of responsiveness, have stressed internalization of values as the desired outcome, and have limited their scope to a small set of parenting strategies or methods. This paper outlines new directions for research. It acknowledges the central importance of parents and argues for research that (1) demonstrates that parental understanding of a particular child's characteristics and situation rather than use of specific strategies or styles is the mark of effective parenting; (2) traces the differential impact of varieties of parent responsiveness; (3) assesses the conditions surrounding the fact that parents have goals other than internalization when socializing their children, and evaluates the impact of that fact; and (4) considers a wider range of parenting strategies.
