Connectedness and Autonomy Support in Parent-Child Relationships: Links to Children's Socioemotional Orientation and Peer Relationships.
Clark, Karen E.; Ladd, Gary W.
Developmental Psychology, v36 n4 p485-98 Jul 2000
Examined the constructs of connectedness and autonomy in relation to 5-year-olds' relational competence, including socioemotional orientation, friendship, and peer acceptance. Found that connectedness was correlated with children's socioemotional orientations, number of mutual friendships, and peer acceptance, and that the relation between parent-child connectedness and children's peer relationships was mediated by children's prosocial-empathic orientation.
