The interaction between parents and children can influence the children’s behavior. It is necessary to investigate specifically which parental behaviors can interfere in child development. Therefore, this study aimed to: a) describe the paternal educational social skills, marital relationships and child behavior as assessed by fathers and (b) relate the paternal educational social skills, marital relationships and child behavior. Participants were 40 fathers of children of preschool age who answered the Parental Educative Social Skills Interview Script, Marital Relationship Questionnaire and Strengths & Difficulties Questionnaire. The results showed a relationship between low educational repertoire of social skills and negative variables of marital relationship and behavioral problems of children, and also that, the better the educational social skills, the better the evaluation of the marital relationship and the better the children’s behavioral repertoire.
