playground behavior, parental discipline
To explore relationships among parent's self-reported disciplinary strategies, preschoolers' outcome expectations, and playground behavior. 136 mothers of preschool age children (age range 39-71 months) participated in home disciplinary style interviews. Measures of preschoolers' outcome expectations and observations of children's' prosocial, antisocial/disruptive, and nonsocial/withdrawn playground behavior were also obtained. results indicated that power-assertive mothers had preschoolers who engaged in more antisocial/disruptive behavior and who expected successful instruments outcomes for hostile methods of resolving peer conflict. Preschoolers with such outcome expectations also participated in more antisocial playground behavior.
