This study examined longitudinal associations among maternal intrusive control, adolescent self-disclosure, and maternal knowledge during children’s transition to adolescence. Results indicated that greater maternal intrusive control in sixth grade predicted lower adolescent self-disclosure in seventhth grade. In turn, self-disclosure predicted greater maternal knowledge in eighth grade.
