Research on divergent thinking, the ability to use many different solutions to solve a problem, has shown significant relationships with child temperament and parenting behaviors; however, few studies have examined the existence of these relationships in the toddler and preschool-age years. The current, on-going, study aims to explore the relationship between child temperament, maternal acceptance/rejection, and divergent thinking in children 19 months to 6 years of age. Mothers will be asked to complete the CBQ-VSF and PARQ to assess child temperament and accepting/rejecting parenting behaviors, respectively, while children are asked to complete the Unusual Box Test to measure divergent thinking.
