Abstract

Direct relations have been found between marital conflict resolution and negative parenting and child maladjustment; however, no studies have analyzed whether marital conflict resolution moderates the relation between negative parenting practices and child behavior. Psychological control has been shown to be an important and unique type of parenting that requires further study as some research has suggested that certain demographic variables and family characteristics may influence the relation between psychological control and child behavior.
