Maternal Behaviors and Cognitions during Discipline Episodes: A Comparison of Power Bouts and Single Acts of Noncompliance.
Ritchie, Kathy L.
Developmental Psychology, v35 n2 p580-89 Mar 1999
Used daily telephone interviews and simulations to compare maternal behaviors and cognitions within power bouts and single acts of noncompliance. Found that the power bouts formed a special class of discipline episodes distinct from single noncompliance. Mothers reported more negative perceptions of the child and more aversion during extended power bouts. (Author/KB)
