  1. Schooling will be associated with cultural complexity (p. 237).Zern, David - The role of schooling in socializing and skill-building: a cross-cultural study, 1983 - 2 Variables

    This study examines the role of schooling in socialization processes and cultural complexity, seeking to understand whether schooling is correlated with these variables and/or affects them. The author concludes that school serves as a socializer for young children, a skill developer for older children, and a homogenizing force on societal child-rearing practices.

  2. The association between socialization pressure and cultural complexity will be different in socities with extensive schooling versus no schooling (p. 237).Zern, David - The role of schooling in socializing and skill-building: a cross-cultural study, 1983 - 3 Variables

    This study examines the role of schooling in socialization processes and cultural complexity, seeking to understand whether schooling is correlated with these variables and/or affects them. The author concludes that school serves as a socializer for young children, a skill developer for older children, and a homogenizing force on societal child-rearing practices.

  3. Disequilibrium in child-rearing will be positively associated with cultural complexity (127).Zern, David S. - Child-rearing practices and societal complexity: effect of disequilibrium on..., 1980 - 2 Variables

    This study examines the relationship between disequilibrium in child-rearing and societal complexity (particularly social complexity rather than technical complexity). The author suggests that child-rearing plays a role in forming cultural dimensions.

  4. Pressure to conform (to obey, nurture, or be responsible) will be positively correlated with cultural complexity, and pressure to function independently (to achieve, be self-reliant and independent) will be negatively correlated (p.15-6).Zern, David - The relationship of certain group-oriented and individualistically oriented ..., 1983 - 2 Variables

    This article tests the relationship between child-training variables and cultural complexity. Attention is paid to different types of socialization pressure (group-oriented versus individual-oriented; the degree of anxiety created by the pressure). Findings suggest that group-oriented socialization promotes societal complexity, but individual-oriented socialization and pressure-induced anxiety do not.

  5. Ritual and belief will be positively associated with schooling (223).Zern, David - Religiousness related to cultural complexity and pressures to obey cultural ..., 1984 - 3 Variables

    This article examines the relationship between religiousness, child socialization, and cultural complexity. Empirical analysis suggests that there is a positive association between cultural complexity and religiousness, especially ritual. Religiousness was also associated with schooling, one of the child-rearing variables examined. A theoretical discussion concerning religion and intellect is also included.

  6. High socialization pressure and group cohesion in value orientation will be positively and independently associated with cultural complexity (186, 194).Zern, David - The impact of values on development in a cross-cultural sample, 1982 - 3 Variables

    This article investigates relationships between socialization practices, group values, and cultural complexity. Analysis suggests that child-rearing variables and group cohesion in value orientation contribute significantly and independently to cultural complexity.

  7. Pressure for obedience to social norms will be positively associated with cultural complexity (206).Zern, David - The use of discipline in socialization: its relationship to cognitive complexity, 1981 - 2 Variables

    This study examines the relationship between disciplining children and cognitive complexity. 1027 relationships between individual variable pairs are tested, and a significant portion support an association between pressure for obedience to social norms and complexity. Additional socialization variables are considered; gender and age differences are also discussed.

  8. Pressure to obey is positively associated with characteristics of music (219).Zern, David - The relationship of pressure toward obedience to production in art and music..., 1983 - 2 Variables

    Child-rearing practices are tested for a relationship to art and music characteristics in a cross-cultural sample.

  9. Pressure to obey in child-rearing is positively associated with art with long lines and large figures as well as sharp, prominent figures (219)Zern, David - The relationship of pressure toward obedience to production in art and music..., 1983 - 3 Variables

    Child-rearing practices are tested for a relationship to art and music characteristics in a cross-cultural sample.

  10. Levels of pressure or anxiety/conflict children experience in regard to their performance of both individualistic and group-oriented behaviors tend to be positively correlated (p. 684).Zern, David - Relationships among selected child-rearing variables in a cross-cultural sam..., 1984 - 1 Variables

    This article examines child-training through children's display of individualistic orientations (self-reliance, achievement, and general independence) and/or group orientations (responsibility, nurturance, and obedience). Five sub-categories measure whether each orientation is linked to a child's experience of general pressure or performance anxiety/conflict. Together, these orientations their sub-categories total 30 variables that were correlated; differences in gender were also examined. Results indicate that child-rearing pressure to act one way predicts pressure to act in other ways, and this pattern of interaction between variables did not vary by gender.
