Abstract The mothers of 23 Down's syndrome children were asked to complete the Behavioral Style Questionnaire (BSQ) concerning the temperament characteristics of their child. They were also interviewed with the Implicit Parental Learning Theory (IPLET) Scale, which asked how they would handle certain specified child behaviors. Mothers of children with temperament rated as easy responded to the IPLET situations with more direct teaching responses and with less verbal expression of negative emotions than mothers of more difficult children. In addition, there were significant associations between maternal IPLET response and the activity, rhythm, approach, adaptability, and mood dimensions of the BSQ.
