German term or phrase: elterliche Verhaltensstile
Deailng with children with mental disorders. Does the phrase mean "parenting styles" or "parental behavior"? In other words, the former would mean the parents' behavior specifically regarding their children, whereas the latter is broader, and could include more indirect influences on their children. If I yell at my husband, that is not a "parenting style," but it does affect the children. (This is, of course, a merely hypothetical example!)

Es gibt Hinweise, dass elterliche Verhaltensstile den Erfolg und die Nachhaltigkeit von Präventionsmaßnahmen beeinflussen können.

Danke!

parental behavior patterns
Explanation:
Parental educational styles constitute one of the key elements of family socialization. The aim of the present essay is to present the results of a research project carried out in the Principality of Asturias (Spain) among 2,965 families with children of infant and primary-school age (5-8 years old). This research attempts to analyse, among other aspects, parental behaviour tendencies in child upbringing. The analysis of the results obtained allows us to: 1) identify the most common attitudinal and behavioural tendencies of parents in the upbringing of their children; 2) determine how many people have a well defined parental style, and delimit their socio-educational characteristics. Lastly, we consider the need to change some parental behaviour patterns and stress the importance of family education programmes, with the aim of promoting appropriate parenting models and modifying or improving current practices.

I think 'parental behavior patterns', just like 'elterliche Verhaltensstile' is rather open-ended. It can refer to both the behavior of the parents or to their role as parents.
