Youth and parent perceptions of parenting in childhood cancer survivors and healthy peers

Youth and parent perceptions of parenting in childhood cancer survivors and healthy peers Purpose Having a child diagnosed with cancer may have a long-term impact on parenting practices. The aims of this study were to (a) examine possible differences in youth and parent perceptions of parenting between childhood cancer survivors and healthy comparisons, (b) determine the concordance between youth and parent perceptions of parenting, and (c) explore differences in parent-youth concordance between survivors and healthy comparisons. Methods Participants were youth aged 8–18 years (N = 170 childhood cancer survivors, N = 114 healthy comparisons) and one of their parents. All patients were ≥ 3 years from diagnosis (M =6.52, SD = 3.60). Both youth (Parental Bonding Instrument (PBI)) and parents (Parenting Relationship Questionnaire (PRQ)) reported on their perceptions of parenting. Two separate MANCOVA’s (PBI and PRQ) were conducted to determine possible differences between childhood cancer survivors and healthy peers. Concordance between youth and parent perceptions of parenting was examined. Results Survivors did not differ from healthy peers in their perception of parental care and overprotection (p = .890). Likewise, parents in the survivor and healthy peer groups did not differ in their perceptions of involvement, attachment, communication, confidence, or relational frustration (p = .360).

Abstract

Purpose Having a child diagnosed with cancer may have a long-term impact on parenting practices. The aims of this study were to (a) examine possible differences in youth and parent perceptions of parenting between childhood cancer survivors and healthy comparisons, (b) determine the concordance between youth and parent perceptions of parenting, and (c) explore differences in parent-youth concordance between survivors and healthy comparisons. Methods Participants were youth aged 8–18 years (N = 170 childhood cancer survivors, N = 114 healthy comparisons) and one of their parents. All patients were ≥ 3 years from diagnosis (M =6.52, SD = 3.60). Both youth (Parental Bonding Instrument (PBI)) and parents (Parenting Relationship Questionnaire (PRQ)) reported on their perceptions of parenting. Two separate MANCOVA’s (PBI and PRQ) were conducted to determine possible differences between childhood cancer survivors and healthy peers. Concordance between youth and parent perceptions of parenting was examined. Results Survivors did not differ from healthy peers in their perception of parental care and overprotection (p = .890). Likewise, parents in the survivor and healthy peer groups did not differ in their perceptions of involvement, attachment, communication, confidence, or relational frustration (p = .360).
