The purpose of this descriptive, cross-sectional study was to describe parenting style and mothers' worry and how they predict child behavior in Russian families with young children, aged 4-7 living in Saint Petersburg, Russia. The goals of this study were threefold: establishing foundational data for the improvement of health care in Russia and the development of family nursing care in the Russian health system; establishing normative data for provision of holistic health care to Russian families who have immigrated to the US; and describing parenting style and child behavior outcomes to guide culturally sensitive health care and teaching in Russia and the US. Guided by the "developmental niche" model, data from 109 Russian mothers were gathered on the study variables using the Parenting Style and Dimension Questionnaire, a newly developed Russian Mothers' Stress Questionnaire, and the Child Behavior Checklist. Results from multiple regression analysis indicated that the variables in combination contribute significantly to predict child behavior outcomes. Russian mothers’ worry regarding negative life events emerged as a significant predictor in child behavior. This result suggested that as mothers’ worry about negative life events increased then mothers’ perception of child behavior problems increased in total, externalizing and internalizing behavior. The relationship was strongest with internalizing behavior. In this study Russian parents tended to use an authoritative parenting style most often. There was not a significant relationship between mothers' parenting style and child behavior. However a significant relationship between the mothers’ perception of the fathers’ parenting style and child behavior emerged. The mothers’ perception that the fathers were using a greater degree of authoritative parenting resulted in a decrease in child total and internalizing behavior problems.
