Child & Family Behavior Therapy, v19 n3 p1-11 1997
Compares discipline strategies of mothers and fathers (N=38) with hard-to-manage toddlers. Results, based on observational and self-report methods, indicate that mothers were more overreactive in their discipline than fathers, although no difference in lax parenting was found. Examined other factors as possible determinants of mothers' overreactivity. (RJM)
