Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document This analysis of the maternal attitudes of Irish mothers across class, educational level, and age, used a standardized psychological test, the Parental Attitude Research Inventory (PARI). Compared to test results from the United States, the author found that Irish mothers tended to be more authoritarian and controlling, and less enamored with democratic attitudes than their American counterparts, although there was significant variation across class and mothers' level of education. In larger households where there was spousal help, mothers tended to be less controlling.
