Abstract

How parent-child discrepancies in perceived parental control associate with children’s prosocial behaviors remains unknown. This study examined this issue in 578 Chinese children (297 girls, Mage = 10.85, SDage = 0.72) and their mothers and fathers. Parents and children reported parental psychological and behavioral control, and children reported their prosocial behaviors. The latent difference scores modeling showed that compared to parents’ perceptions, children’s higher perceptions of guilt induction were related to more public prosocial behaviors; higher perceptions of love withdrawal were linked to fewer altruistic, compliant, emotional, and dire prosocial behaviors; and higher reporting of solicitation was associated with more general prosocial behaviors. The findings revealed the association between parent–child discrepancies and early adolescents’ prosocial behaviors, supporting both the discrepancy–maladaptive hypotheses and the discrepancy–adaptive hypotheses within Chinese families.
