1 Mothers, fathers and cultural influences on parenting styles Researchers who have set out to explore differences and similarities in mothers’ and fathers’ approaches to parenting have produced inconclusive findings. Baumrind’s analysis underscores the need to study parents’ philosophies of childrearing, but she has not explored why parents adopt the strategies they do. Studying the parents of 305 Australian pre-schoolers, Russell and his colleagues (2003) found that mothers were more likely to identify with the authoritative style of parenting whereas fathers were more likely to describe themselves as either authoritarian or permissive.

The concept of IWM underpins the definition of three types of adult attachment: dismissing, autonomous and preoccupied. Adult attachment classifications have been based on ratings of responses in a standardized Adult Attachment Interview (AAI). Infant attachment type is associated with subsequent adult attachment type. Parental adult attachment type appears to have an effect on infant attachment security. The process of intergenerational transmission of attachment is now better understood. Life events affect the course of attachment development.
