ABSTRACT

Children's and their mothers' understanding of children's personal domain were examined in a sample of 3-, 4-, and 5-year-old children and their mothers. Children were asked to judge mothers' control in personal, moral, and social-conventional domains in terms of compliance, legitimacy, authority contingency, locus of control, and emotion. Children judged mother's control for personal problems as distinct from mother's control for moral and social-conventional problems on compliance, authority contingency and emotion. Unlike children, mothers indicated that they should control children's moral and social-conventional problems and their children should control problems in personal domain. Children's understanding of personal domain was related to maternal psychological control; children who experienced more maternal psychological control tended to think that they should have more control over the problems in the personal domain.
