For example, perhaps the reason why children who see their parents as controlling tend to be more negative about parental involvement is that the children were temperamentally negative to begin with in ways that prompted parents to be controlling.
Grolnick has a brief treatment of child-to-parent effects but only in the context of explaining what prompts parents to be controlling. She does not use these results, or those detecting genetic influence, to cast doubt upon the leaps from correlation to cause that have been so prominent in the developmental literature.
