Self-Esteem, parent-child interaction, relationships
The problem under consideration in the present paper deals with the relationship between parent-child interaction patterns and the child's self esteem. The relationship between these variables will be examined in the context of samples drawn from two societies: Saint Paul, Minnesota and San Juan, Puerto Rico.1 It is hoped that a cross-cultural investigation of the effects of parent-child interaction on the child's self esteem will enable us to make a more precise statement about the nature of this relationship.2
