Children's Psychological Development as a Function of the Inaccuracy of Their Mothers' Knowledge of Their Abilities.
Hunt, J. McV.; Paraskevopoulos, John
Journal of Genetic Psychology, v136 n2 p285-98 Jun 1980
Mothers were asked to predict their children's responses to standardized intelligence test items. Negative correlation was expected between inaccurate maternal knowledge of children's ability and degree of children's psychological development. False maternal predictions correlated - .80 with correct children's responses. Nearly all of the inaccurate predictions resulted from overestimating children's competence. (Author/DB)
