Abstract

This study explored the relationship between parents’ perceptions of their child’s attachment to them and parents’ own affective attachment to their child, as well the relationship of these constructs to parenting stress, parent-rated child functional impairment, and parenting sense of competence. Mothers (n = 76) and fathers (n = 30) of children ages 2–10 with autism spectrum disorders participated. Overall, parents’ affective attachment to their child was more consistently related to other aspects of their parenting experiences than were their perceptions of their child’s attachment to them. Also, perceptions of child-to-parent attachment were related to other aspects of parenting for fathers more than for mothers. Implications for parenting interventions and future research, such as longitudinal investigations, are discussed.
