Maternal Child-Rearing Styles and the Social Skills of Learning Disabled Boys.
Elardo, Richard; Freund, Judith Horen
The investigation of the relations between maternal child-rearing styles and the social skills of 17 learning disabled children (mean age 9.8 years) occurred in two parts. In the first part, the authors assembled an instrument to study dimensions of maternal behavior which appear to influence the development of children's social skills. This interview/observation schedule, the Home Environmental Process Inventory, was administered in 15 homes. In the second part of the study, two measures of social skills, role taking and interpersonal problem solving, were administered to each learning disabled child in each of the homes. Some maternal behaviors, such as Press for Other-Centered Expectation, correlated highly with children's scores on the social measures. (Author/SBH)
