Ladd, Gary W.; Hart, Craig H.
Developmental Psychology, v28 n6 p1179-87 Nov 1992
Assessed preschoolers' peer relations and measured the frequency of parents' and children's initiations of children's play interactions with peers. Frequent parent initiations were associated with high levels of children's prosocial behavior. Children who more often initiated interactions displayed less anxious behavior than children who less often initiated interactions. (BC)
