dc.description.abstractThe present study examines the primary appraisals of mothers and children in response to events children might encounter in their daily lives. The study explored whether mothers and children differed in their appraisals of mildly stressful events, and whether appraisals of mothers differed according to sex of child. Six vignettes describing typical events in children’s lives were presented in a home interview setting. The dyads (n=99) were asked to rate how much they cared about the event and how bad it was. A notable finding is that mothers appear to care significantly more about events in their children’s lives than do their children.
