Abstract: Based on the responses of 550 Chinese parents experiencing economic disadvantage in Hong Kong, the relationships between parental beliefs (including Chinese cultural beliefs on adversity, attribution of children ' s success and failure to effort, and expectations of children ' s future) and parenting characteristics (indexed by parenting styles and parental control) were examined in this study. More positive parental child-specific beliefs, particularly parental expectations on children ' s future, were found to be associated with more positive parenting styles and stronger parental control in both paternal and maternal samples. The theoretical and practical implications of the findings are discussed.
