Small, Stephen A.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v50 n4 p1063-72 Nov 1988
Examined relationship between parental self-esteem and aspects of parent-adolescent interaction and adolescent behavior. Results from 139 parent-child dyads revealed that mothers with high self-esteem provided children with greater decision-making freedom and better communication. Fathers with high self-esteem reported better communication with children and were less likely to report using physical forms of discipline. (Author/NB)
