MetadataShow full item record
Self-regulation is an important aspect of a child's life; it is necessary to be able to adapt yourself successfully in daily life. Parental responsiveness is related to child’s self-regulation. In this study, the relation between parental responsiveness and (pre)adolescent self-regulation is examined. It is also examined whether the age of the (pre)adolescent is moderating this relation. This survey study was conducted under 120 Dutch mother-child pairs, of which the (pre)adolescents were between 8 and 14 years old. Parental responsiveness was measured with the Nijmeegse Opvoedingsvragenlijst - Responsiveness. Self-regulation of the (pre)adolescents was measured with the Early Adolescence Temperament Questionnaire Revised, which was filled in by the mothers of the (pre)adolescents. This study has shown that parental responsiveness positively correlates with (pre)adolescents self-regulation. In addition, it has been found that age does not moderate this relation. Age as moderator on this relation should be further investigated in the future, to expand scientific acknowledge.
