Maternal ADHD: Parent-Child Interactions and Relations with Child Disruptive Behavior
Zisser, Alison R.; Eyberg, Sheila M.
Child & Family Behavior Therapy, v34 n1 p33-52 2012
This study examined how ADHD symptoms in mothers of children with ADHD relate to their behavior during parent-child interactions and to their children's disruptive behavior. Findings indicated that mothers' retrospective self-ratings of ADHD symptoms were related to their present negativity during parent-led play. Mothers' self-ratings of current inattentive symptoms were related to their impatience during child-led play. Maternal ADHD symptoms were also related to their ratings of their children's ADHD and oppositional-defiant behaviors. Identifying relations between maternal psychopathology, such as ADHD symptomatology, and behaviors during parent-child interactions may yield clues to additional parent behavioral changes that would enhance treatment outcomes for young children with ADHD. (Contains 2 notes, 5 tables, and 1 figure.)
