Maternal Acceptance –Rejection and Mother–Child Interaction in Turkish Mothers of Children with Developmental Disabilities

AbstractThe study evaluates the relationship between mothers ’ perceptions of being accepted or rejected by their mothers as children and the quality of mother–child interaction in mothers with developmental disabilities. The mothers’ and children’s ages ranged from 25 to 56 (x = 35.05) and 12 to 72 months (x = 52), respectively.

The quality of mother–child interaction was significantly affected by the children’s diagnoses. Although a weak and positive correlation was found between mothers’ perception of maternal rejection and the quality of their interaction with their child, this finding was discussed within the context of culture, since effective parenting in Turkish c...
