How Best to Get Their Own Way?: Children’S Influence Strategies Within Families

We examine the influence strategies which children use to get their own way. We explore the moderating effect which the family environment has upon a child’s choice of which influence strategy type to employ. We suggest that a child’s unique place within their family ecology shapes both the level of resistance to the strategies they use, and also the types of influence strategy which they are able to utilize.
