Abstract:The Cornell Parent Behavior Inventory and Moral Dilemmas Test were administered to 146 girls and 123 boys in all eleven fifth-standard class-rooms of a school in New Zealand. Factor analysis of the first test yielded two factors of similar loadings for mothers and fathers of girls and for mothers and fathers of boys. The factors are Support and Punishment. Boys with high parental support factor scores had a higher mean score on the Moral Dilemmas Test than boys with low scores. The girls' parent perception factor scores did not relate to the Moral Dilemmas Test.
