Function and Content of Maternal Demands: Developmental Significance of Early Demands for Competent Action.
Kuczynski, Leon; Kochanska, Grazyna
Child Development, v66 n3 p616-28 Jun 1995
Examined mothers' demands during mothers' interactions with their 1.5- to 3.5-year olds. Mothers with authoritative child-rearing attitudes emphasized proactive, competence-oriented demands and avoided regulatory control. Maternal demands for competent action predicted fewer behavior problems in their children at age five; maternal demands focused on behavior regulation predicted more behavior problems at age five.
