Abstract: It is often assumed that the father's primary role in society is that of being the breadwinner. Given the emphasis that is placed on the importance of his work, it would not be unreasonable to assume the primacy of the work sphere to any man. This study attempts to look into certain work conditions to see if the influence derived from work affects other spheres of a man's life as well. Specifically, it is the degree of occupational self-direction attained at work that is seen to affect a father's parental valuation of self-direction for his child. It is hypothesized that how self-directed a father is at work will determine how self-directed he wants his child to be. Taking into consideration that ethnicity and religion can also affect ones parental values, the study chooses to look only at Chinese, Protestant fathers. Given that the sample is non-generalizable, the findings only prove to be tentative. However, the results indicate that indeed, occupational self-direction does seem to affect parental valuation of self-direction.
