Developmental Differences in Children's Conceptions of Parental Control: "They Love Me, but They Make Me Feel Incompetent."
Pomerantz, Eva M.; Eaton, Missa Murry
Merrill-Palmer Quarterly, v46 n1 p140-67 Jan 2000
Examined second- through fifth-graders' conceptions of parental control. Found that with grade, children increasingly viewed parental helping, monitoring, and decision-making as indicating child incompetence. Found older children viewed parental praising as motivated by parents' desires to promote competence, and children's conceptions of parental helping, monitoring, and decision-making moderated the relation between perceptions of parental control frequency and children's self-esteem.
