Objective: The current study investigated the differences in parenting behavior between multi-problem families (n=120) and average Dutch families (n=154). The study focused on the parenting dimensions responsiveness, psychological control, behavioral control and harsh discipline. Method: The Nijmeegse Opvoedingsvragenlijst (NOV), the Psychological Control Scale (PCS), the Vragenlijst Toezicht Houden (VTH) and the Schaal Ouderlijk Gedrag (SOG) were administered to parents and children of multi-problem families and average Dutch families. Results: Results showed that multi-problem families are characterized by less responsiveness, more psychological control, less behavioral control and more harsh discipline than average Dutch families. More responsiveness correlates with less psychological control, more behavioral control, and less harsh discipline in both family types. More psychological control correlates with less behavioral control in both family types and with more harsh discipline in multiproblem families and solely if reported by the children in average Dutch families. More behavioral control correlates with less harsh discipline solely if reported by children of multi-problem families. Conclusion: Multi-problem families can be distinguished from average Dutch families on the basis of differences in parenting behaviors.
