VILCHEZ, Jose L. et al. Relationship between parenting styles and self-harm without suicide intention in Ecuadorian population. Rev Cub Med Mil [online]. 2019, vol.48, n.1, e250.  Epub 01-Mar-2019. ISSN 0138-6557.


Family is a context of protection that safeguards the development of the individual. In this area, for the child, learning of useful models begins which they will relate to society later on. It is also the focus of needs to solve by other means. The parental styles, therefore, largely determine and influence the prosocial or maladaptive behaviors, positive or negative, integrative or disruptive of children. In this sense, literature has related the need to draw attention been with behaviors such receiving tattoos.


To show the relationship between self-injurious behavior, attention call and certain parental styles.


We conducted various correlational analysis (using Pearson r) with a sample of 881 college students between the different parenting styles, self-injurious behavior and intent of receiving tattoo.


Parental behaviors (such as maternal control) correlate both with receiving tattoo and with certain self-injurious behaviors. Parental love (of both parents), on the other hand, is a protective factor since it correlates negatively with this type of self-harm behavior. The clearest information lies in the positive correlation between parental negligence (and therefore, lack of attention) with self-injurious behaviors.


Our study concludes that drawing attention is an inherent factor in self-injurious behavior, although it is only one of many factors.
