Lancaster, Gail Diane
Since the Yarrow and Scott study is the basis of the present paper, sections of it will be presented in full. Modeling of Nurturant and Aggressive Behavior by Preschool Children: Influence of High or Low Nurturant Models. In this study, Yarrow and Scott have attempted to define the concepts of high nurturance and low or nonnurturance in specific behavioral terms. The high nurturant condition includes the dimensions of affection; help; protection; praise; providing; interest; and respect. Low or nonnurturant dimensions are: limited help; criticism; restriction; lack of interest; and arbitrary control.
