Article
Full-text available
Positive parenting prescriptions prevailing in Western countries encourage parents to regulate their emotions and, more specifically, to show more positive emotion to their children and control negative emotions while parenting. The beneficial effect of this practice on child development has been much documented, but its possible costs for parents...
Article
Full-text available
What is it to be “an ideal parent”? Does the answer differ across countries and social classes? To answer these questions in a way that minimizes bias and ethnocentrism, we used open-ended questions to explore ideal-parent beliefs among 8,357 mothers and 3,517 fathers from 37 countries. Leximancer Semantic Network Analysis was utilized to first det...
Article
Work and family reflect two key aspects of people's everyday lives. For some individuals, however, these two domains may be viewed as incompatible with each other, as duties associated with one role may be perceived as interfering with the other role. In the present study, we propose that the degree to which people base their self-worth on financia...
Article
Full-text available
Is it possible that striving for flawlessness and perfection in their children's performance is detrimental to parents? Could it be so harmful that it exposes parents to the risk of burnout? In order to answer these questions, this study adopted a three-dimension model of childoriented perfectionism (encompassing three dimensions: high standards, o...

Expecting perfection from the child harms the parent as well. The study presents a questionnaire to measure child-oriented perfectionism.
Article
Full-text available
Objectives: Parental burnout is a prevalent condition that affects parents’ functioning and health. While various protective factors have been examined, little is known about their interplay. In the current study, we examined the joint effect of two protective factors against parental burnout (one external—social support, and one internal—cognitive...
Article
Full-text available
Recent evidence has shown that Western parents are five times more vulnerable to developing parental burnout than parents in other parts of the world. It has also been found that this augmented susceptibility is explained by the group tendency of individualism cultural value that prevails in Western societies. Still, whether this relation observed...
Article
Both maternal and paternal parental involvement are critical for child development. What is unclear, nonetheless, is how parents’ own relationships contribute to the growth of children. Addressing the question, we predicted marital satisfaction strengthens parenting efficacy, making parental involvement more effective in increasing children’s funct...
Article
Full-text available
In Western countries, recent decades have witnessed a revolution toward gender equality. Inequalities have been greatly reduced in areas such as education or employment. Because inequalities lead to distress, this development has largely benefited women. One notable exception is the realm of parenting, which has remained rife with inequalities even...
Article
Full-text available
Studies have revealed that parenting perfectionism, especially the dimension of perfectionistic concerns, is a substantial risk factor for parental burnout, but this association can be buffered by emotional intelligence. Less is known, however, about the underlying mechanism of these observations. This study examined an integrated model consisting...
Article
Full-text available
Emotional competence (EC) has been documented as one of the most influential resource to protect parents from parental burnout (PB). However, the dimensions of EC have inconsistent effects across studies: while intrapersonal EC consistently had a protective effect on PB, interpersonal EC was paradoxically documented both as a risk factor and a prot...
Article
Full-text available
High levels of stress in the parenting domain can lead to parental burnout, a condition that has severe consequences for both parents and children. It is not yet clear, however, whether parental burnout varies by culture, and if so, why it might do so. In this study, we examined the prevalence of parental burnout in 42 countries (17,409 parents; 71...
Article
Full-text available
Parenting perfectionism, especially the dimension of perfectionistic concerns—preoccupation with self-criticism including concern over mistakes and doubts about own behaviors—, has been shown to be a weighty factor for parental burnout. Drawing on the Balance between Risks and Resources (BR2) theory of parental burnout, this paper examines whether...

In the present paper, we aim to examine whether emotional competence could buffer the effect of parenting perfectionism on parental burnout. By exploring two independent samples of parents collected in Belgium (N = 347) and Poland (N = 377), we indeed found: 1. parenting perfectionism puts parents at risk of parental burnout; 2. emotional competenc...

Article
Full-text available
Ideals and practices of education co-exist within a dialectic relation: without practice, an education with only ideal would result in nothing more than a fantasy; whereas an education without ideals but with only practice would become blinded. A review of the history of education shows a “swinging relation” where holistic education ideals and prac...
