Mothers’ involvement with kids with social anxiety disorder

An interesting study from Germany, cited in EurekAlert, looked at mothers’ interactions with their children while the children were solving puzzles.  Mothers of normally developing children tended not to interfere in the children’s activity, while mothers of those diagnosed with social anxiety disorder tended to coax and interact with their children much more often during the task.  A number of conclusions could be drawn from these results, but more study would be interesting too.
