Examined predictors of compliance in 51 mother-toddler (15 to 31 months) dyads. Found that emotional availability (especially sensitivity and structuring) assessed during a laboratory free play period was the strongest predictor of compliance. High-compliance toddlers were perceived by their mothers to be less socially fearful and less prone to anger than were less compliant toddlers. (Author/KB)
