Parents' Attributions for Their Children's Behavior.
Miller, Scott A.
Child Development, v66 n6 p1557-84 Dec 1995
Reviews research on the determinants and the effects of parents' attributions. The evidence suggests that parents do form attributions for their children's behavior; these attributions vary in predictable ways across judges (mothers versus fathers), targets (age or sex of child), and behavior outcomes (positive or negative); and attributions affect both parents' behavior and the children's development.
