Reciprocal Negative Affect in Parent-Child Interactions and Children's Peer Competency.
Carson, James L.; Parke, Ross D.
Child Development, v67 n5 p2217-26 Oct 1996
Examined the relationship between 41 preschool children's peer competency and the exchange of reciprocal negative affect displays during physical play with parents. Found that fathers who typically responded to their children's negative affect displays with negative affect of their own had children who shared less, were more aggressive, and avoided others. (MDM)
