Investigated Taiwanese and U.S. mothers' beliefs regarding the reasons for their toddlers' and their own positive and negative behaviors, assessing five attributional orientations. Surveys of 21 Taiwanese and 36 U.S. mothers indicated that Taiwanese mothers more readily blamed their children and themselves for misdeeds and less readily took credit for positive behaviors than did U.S. mothers.
