Maternal Negativity and Children's Externalizing Behavior.
Heller, Tracy L.; Baker, Bruce L.
Early Education and Development, v11 n4 p483-98 Jul 2000
Examined how behavior of mothers and preschoolers predicted behavior problems at preschool, first grade, and third grade. Found that maternal negativity was predicted, beyond the child's disruptive behavior, by mothers' perception of low spousal agreement and support related to child problems and depression. Third graders' symptoms and ADHD and ODD diagnoses were predicted by mothers' commands, but not negativity. (Author/KB)
