The chapter investigates associations between parental socialization goals and ethnotheories concerning child rearing practices, toddler temperament, and behavior problems for the whole sample, between and within specific countries. Results suggest relations between parental socialization goals/ethnotheories and child temperament along with behavior problems. The findings provide a glimpse into the complex pattern of interactions between cultural dimensions, parental psychology, and social-emotional development.
