Abstract or Summary
  • An analysis was conducted to test current theories regarding education, income, and marital satisfaction as determinants of parenting in different ways for men and women. The gender specific issues in parenting to be tested were: 1) Education is positively related to parental involvement for both men and women. 2) Marital dissatisfaction is positively related to maternal involvement and negatively related to paternal involvement. 3) Income is positively related to parental involvement for both men and women. One focus of the test of the above theories was a sample of twenty-five American Indian families primarily recruited with the assistance of the Confederated Tribes of Siletz. Twenty-five non-Indian families with similar education and income characteristics were matched with the Siletz sample from the larger Oregon Family Study sample for comparison/control group purposes. Significant gender and ethnic differences in the significance of education, income, and marital satisfaction on paternal involvement are reported.
