This study focused on a social interaction theory of the development of cognitive self-regulation. Specifically, the effect of mother-child interaction on the child's ability to problem solve was investigated. The general predictions were (1) children who interacted with their mothers throughout a problem-solving task would subsequently exhibit improved independent performance over practice-control children, who received corrective feedback from a female experimenter at the end of the task; (2… 
Mothers' sensitivity to the competencies of their preschoolers on a concept-learning task
This study investigated the instructional strategies mothers used when interacting with their child on a concept-learning task and the effect of this interaction on subsequent independent child
Mothers' scaffolding of children's problem solving: establishing a foundation of academic self-regulatory competence.
The study examined relations between dimensions of mothers' scaffolding and children's academic self-regulatory behaviors in school. Mothers and their preschool children (68 dyads) were visited in
Maternal Facilitation of Children's Problem Solving: Relation to Disruptive Child Behavior and Maternal Characteristics
Examined the relation between mother-child interaction behaviors, disruptive child behavior, and maternal characteristics within the context of maternal facilitation of children's problem solving. In

Instruction Begins in the Home: Relations between Parental Instruction and Children's Self-Regulation in the Classroom.
The study examined the effectiveness of 3 aspects of parental instruction for predicting children's self-regulation in school. Fathers, mothers, and their children (52 families) were visited in their
Parents' regulation and self-regulation and performance in children with intellectual disability in problem-solving using physical materials or computers.
In both groups, with control for MA, parental support with the identification of the objective, with planning and with attention was negatively linked to the corresponding self-regulatory strategies of the children with each medium; however, parents' joint attention was positively linked with children's joint attention.
Mother’s, father’s regulation and child’s self-regulation in a computer-mediated learning situation
This study has explored the parents’ regulation strategies that were more likely to support children’s self-regulation in learning situations with computers. These strategies have been analysed by
The Role of Early Parenting in Children's Development of Executive Processes
Results showed that mothers' early verbal scaffolding at 3 years indirectly influenced both types of executive processing skills at 6 years by directly influencing children's language and nonverbal problem-solving skills at 4 years of age.
