Abstract : Nine pre-school males, age two to three, and their mothers were observed in a controlled environment in an effort to determine the relationship of mother attention to child behaviors labelled as 'mands.' The experiment consisted of four periods alternating between free interaction between mother and child and periods which precluded interaction. Time rule interaction data demonstrated significant increases in four out of eleven behaviors. (Author)
