Abstract

Background: In Taiwan, transnational-marriage families face more challenges to childrearing success than their domestic marriage counterparts. The parenting approaches and behaviors of transnational-marriage mothers have yet to be adequately studied, and few quantitative studies have been done. Purpose: The present study verifies the reliability and validity of the Modified Child Rearing Practice Report (MCRPR) parenting scale for Indonesian mothers in transnational-marriage families in Taiwan. Methods: Purposive sampling was used to recruit Indonesian mothers in the Kaohsiung and Pingtung. Women who were the primary caregiver of one or more children aged between 3 and 12 years were asked to participate. In-depth interviews were first conducted to determine whether participant experiences fit the M-CRPR concept. A total of 201 qualified women agreed to participate and were asked to respond to the Indonesian-version M-CRPR, produced using a double-translation approach. M-CRPR reliability and validity were subsequently evaluated. Results: Factor analysis identified three factor clusters: nurturance (15 items), restrictiveness (14 items), and protection (5items). The factor loading of each item was between 0.32 and 0.69 and these 3 factors explained 28.13% of total variance. The internal consistency of the Indonesia-version M-CRPR was 0.84 and the ICC was 0.88. Conclusions: The reliability and validity of the Indonesian M-CRPR were both acceptable. This instrument may be used to investigate parenting issues faced by Indonesia mothers in transnational-marriage.
