LEME, Maria Isabel da Silva; CARVALHO, Alysson Massote  e  JOVELEVITHS, Ilana. Parents' opinions and interpersonal conflict resolution by preadolescents. Temas psicol. [online]. 2012, vol.20, n.2, pp. 337-354. ISSN 1413-389X.

The study aimed to verify possible relationships between preadolescents' strategies to solve interpersonal conflicts and their perception of parents' opinions about these strategies. 369 students participated, enrolled in the sixth and seventh grades of three schools, one public and two private. They answered an open questionnaire about their strategies to solve ten conflicts with colleagues, friends or parents. Questions concerning parental opinion about the proposed strategy were added in two conflicts. The results showed that the prevailing resolution strategies in the sample were submission, coercion, coercion mixed with submission, and negotiation. Differences were found between school types on the predominance of each resolution strategy, as well as in relation to the perception of parental opinion. The strategies perceived as approved by parents were submission, submission mixed with coercion, and negotiation. Aggression was pointed out as rebuked. Positive relationships were obtained between strategic choice and perception of parents' opinion as well as between opinion and motive.
