Investigated concurrent and longitudinal relations between attributions and negative behavioral interactions between 177 fathers and young adolescents. Found that children's attributions about father played a significant role in negative interactions within and across time. Father's earlier negative interactions with their children predicted children's subsequent attributions about father. Both attributions and behavioral interactions were highly stable for fathers and children. (Author/KB)
