Instructional Directive Mother instructs the child how to perform the appropriate response (e.g., "Why don't you use the use blue block?," "Turn the block to make the angle," "Do you want to do it in a different color?," "Do you want to flip it and see what happens?," "Put that one right there").
The nine maternal scaffolding strategies (ranging in order from non-directive and less controlling to directive and highly controlling) were: promotio n of independence, explanation, inquiry, verbal hint, verbal prompt, instructional directives, modeling, correction, and physical control (see Table 2).
Both II and AA mothers appeared to be less physically controlling in their behavior [F (1, 38) = 36.33, p < .001], reduced their level of correction [F (1,38) = 39.35,p < .001], gave fewer instructional directives [F (1, 38) = 8.10, p < .01], used fewer verbal prompts [F (1, 38) = 3l.l3,p < .001] and fewer verbal hints [F(1, 38) = 25.71, p < .001], and utilized less promotion of independence [F(1, 38) = 16.53, p < .001] in the free play activity, as compared to the goal-oriented activity.
As presented in Table 5, the analyses of univariate F tests across control and experimental conditions showed significant group differences, indicating that II mothers in the experimental condition altered their level of support by reducing their number of instructional directives [F (1, 36) = 20.l7, p < .001], corrections [F (1, 36) = 16.67, p < .001], inquiries [F (1, 36) = 7.91, p < .01], verbal hints [F (1, 36) = 4.38, p < .05], and physical control [F (1, 36) = 4.97, p < .05].
