EXECUTIVE OPERATION BY NEGLIGENT PARENTAL AREAS AND PRACTICES IN CHILDREN BETWEEN 8 AND 12 YEARS
Objective: To compare the Executive Functioning of children whose parents presented some behaviors of parenthood associated with negligence with a control group. Design: Non-experimental transversal. Participants: 149 children chosen in a non probabilistic manner participated. Instruments: BANFE and E2P parenting scale. Results: The parental practices in bonding and protective competences are the ones found in surveillance zones, this is indicating the fact that the parents are more concerned with meeting the physical needs of the children and not the affective ones; in terms of executive functioning no significant differences are found between the groups, this can be attributed to the fact that these negligent practices would only impact the executive functioning in cases where they occur at an early age with a high level of seriousness.
