The Importance of Non Verbal Behavior in Giving Instructions to Children.
Hudson, Alan; Blane, Maureen
Child and Family Behavior Therapy, v7 n2 p1-10 Sum 1985
A study of 16 mother-child pairs found that parents' non-verbal behaviors affect child compliance with parental requests. Five behaviors were investigated: distance from child; mother's body orientation; eye contact; tone of voice; and mother's orientation toward objects involved in the instruction. Parent training clinics should recognize the significance of non-verbal behaviors. (KH)
