ABSTRACTIntroduction: When women live the experience of childbirth is faced with a number of new tasks related to the role of mother; the level of security that she has at the start of her maternity may be strongly linked to its vision on how to raise your child.
Objective: To determine parenting expectations of mothers of term and preterm infants.
Methods: This was a cross-sectional study conducted between September 2013 and January 2014. The sample was non-probabilistic and included 340 mothers: 162 (47,65 %) mothers of term infants and 178 (52,35 %) mothers of preterm infants, from Bucaramanga (Colombia). The information was collected using the Adult- Adolescent Parenting Inventory. The Stata version 12R program was used for data processing and analysis according to the instructions.
Results: The group of mothers of preterm infants had better parenting expectations than the group of mothers of term infants, whose scores on the four dimensions indicated a high risk of negligence in child care.
Conclusions: Knowing the parenting expectations of mothers of term and preterm infants will allow to establish nursing interventions aimed at strengthening the maternal role.
