Parent Variables in Young Children's Cooperative Behavior.
Roke, Edward J.; And Others
It was hypothesized that both parental affection and the emphasizing of the feelings, thoughts, and intentions of others in discipline techniques are related to young children's cooperativeness. The cooperative behavior of 31 children was measured by both naturalistic observation and behavior ratings. Parents were interviewed and responded to five child-rearing situations and a questionnaire. While mothers' discipline was unrelated to observed or rated cooperation, fathers' discipline tended to be positively related to daughters' cooperativeness and negatively related to sons'. Fathers' affection tended to be related to sons' cooperativeness and mothers' affection to daughters' cooperativeness. Significant relationships were also found with other child/family variables.
