Parental Socialization of Prosocial Behavior

Parental Socialization of Prosocial Behavior

A Multidimensional Approach

(p.131) 7 Parental Socialization of Prosocial Behavior
Prosocial Development

Laura M. Padilla-Walker

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines parental socialization of prosocial behavior from a multidimensional perspective. This is achieved by reviewing multiple forms of parenting, including parental warmth and control, as well as reactive (i.e., induction, power assertion, praise, external reward) and proactive (i.e., emotion socialization, experiential learning, parental teaching) parental strategies. In addition, a variety of prosocial behaviors are highlighted, including different types of prosocial behavior and prosocial behavior toward different targets. This chapter calls for future research that more carefully considers the theoretical significance of the aspect of parenting studied, as well as greater specificity in the measurement and conceptualization of prosocial behavior.

Keywords:   parenting, prosocial behavior, socialization, development, multidimensional, reactive, proactive, childhood, adolescence
