Abstract: The data consist of detailed information on the child rearing practices of 218 rural Wisconsin families (NOTE that originally data from 162 families were collected; the additional 56 cases were collected at a later time). The subjects of the study were children between the ages of 5 and 7, of old American cultural backgrounds in a predominantly old American community. In order to control gross occupational, cultural and socioeconomic influences, only unbroken, middle-class, native American families were studied. Data were obtained from personal interviews with the mothers, conducted in their homes by trained interviewers. The interview covered many aspects of parent-child relationships, personal adjustment of the child, and the family's and child's community relations. Included are items concerning infant care, child training procedures, and the handling of disciplinary problems.
