VITE SIERRA, Ariel and LOPEZ RODRIGUEZ, Florente. The mothering authoritarian and permissive asynchrony in child abuse. Rev. mex. anál. conducta [online]. 2010, vol.36, n.3, pp. 23-34. ISSN 0185-4534. http://dx.doi.org/10.5514/rmac.v36.i3.02.
The objective of the present study was to compare two forms of maternal asynchrony: authoritarian and permissive between dyads with history of physical abuse and control dyads. Participated 17 mother-infant dyads with a history of physical abuse and 17 dyads without a history of abuse. The children's ages ranged between four and nine years with a mean age of 6.8 years. Both groups of dyads were observed in 3 sessions of 30 minutes in an academic condition. The discussion focuses on the types of maternal asynchrony and differences between the characteristics of both groups that may account for the parenting styles of each type of sample.
