Children’s perceptions of maternal hostility as a mediator of the link between discipline and children’s adjustment in four countries Lansford et al. (2010) Questions not on the final exam: 3, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 15, 16, 17, 18 Note : Point-form (direct/precise) answers are preferred since you are required to include the questions in your handout. In some cases, full marks may consistent of identifying the name of a country. Introduction 1. Many research studies have investigated whether there are associations/correlations between physical discipline and children’s adjustment. As noted in the first sentence of the current study, there are known cultural differences in the associations between physical discipline and children’s adjustment. (a) According to Deater-Deckard and Dodge (1997 ), WHY might we observe these cultural differences in the effects of physical discipline on children? Children’s perceived normativeness of parents’ discipline (b) According to Rohner (1986) , WHY might we observe these cultural differences in the effects of physical discipline on children? Children’s perceived hostility of parents’ discipline 2. Identify the research findings of Lansford et al.’s (2005) study. They found that children’s and mothers’ perceptions of cultural normativeness of physical discipline moderated the association between experiencing physical discipline and child aggression and anxiety, indicating that more frequent experience of physical discipline was less strongly associated with adverse child outcomes in countries where the experience of physical discipline is more normativ e, with particularly robust findings for children’s perception of normativeness. 3. What is the unanswered question in Landsford et al.’s (2005) study that the current 2010 study attempts to answer? Whether children are more likely to perceive harsh discipline as indicating parental hostility when they perceive harsh discipline to be nonnormative than when they perceive harsh discipline to be normative. 4. The current study elected to focus on one physical discipline strategy and one harsh verbal discipline strategy. (a) Identify the physical discipline strategy that the current study investigates. Spanking/slapping (b) Identify the harsh verbal discipline strategy that the current study investigates.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
