Parenting and Child Behavioral Adjustment in Early Childhood: A Quantitative Genetic Approach To Studying Family Processes.
Deater-Deckard, Kirby
Child Development, v71 n2 p468-84 Apr-May 2000
Examined environmental and gene-environment processes linking parenting (affect, control, responsiveness) and preschoolers' behavioral adjustment difficulties (noncompliance, conduct problems). Found that estimates of shared environmental variance and mediation were greatest for observational data, and estimates of child genetic variance and mediation were greatest for parent-rated data. Findings pose implication for genetic research on family processes. (Author/KB)
