NUNES, FILIPA  and  PINHEIRO MOTA, CATARINA. Parenting Styles and Dimensions Questionnaire - Adaption of the Observer Reporting Version to the Portuguese Population. Rev. colomb. psicol. [online]. 2018, vol.27, n.1, pp.117-131. ISSN 0121-5469.

This study aimed to analyze the psychometric properties of the Parenting Styles and Dimensions Questionnaire (PSDQ) and adapts its observer reporting version to the Portuguese population. The sample consisted of 604 adolescents 15 to 18 years old (M=15.99, SD=.97). Reliability as measured by Cronbach's alpha revealed indices of .86/.81 for the totality of the instrument in the father and mother version respectively, with indices that varied between .48A85 for the respective subscales. The Confirmatory Factor Analysis indicated mismatched values for the goodness of fit indices. The analysis of principal components study confirmed the original structure of the instrument organized in three factors that revealed the presence of a permissive item saturating into another factor. Semantic analysis of this item and its respective reorganization verified adequate goodness of fit indices. The new factor structure of the PSDQ is proposed as more adjusted to the Portuguese culture.

Keywords : democratic parental style; authoritarian parental style; permissive parental style; PSDQ; developmental psychology.
