Control) (10) Showing them how pleased you are with their progress. (Dummy) (11) Dealing with them when they are unhappy. (Child-oriented affective) Statements 4 and 10 were deliberately inserted as dummy statements designed to move the mother’s responses across to ‘fairly easy’ and ‘easy’ and thus mitigate the emphasis placed on ‘difficulty’ in the initial question. In fact, these statements elicited the responses ‘fairly easy’ or ‘easy’ from 72 per cent of the middle-class mothers and from 76 per cent of the working-class mothers.

He tends to regulate his own learning Class, codes and control 38 in an arranged environment which encourages autonomy in skill acquisition. For this reason the middle-class mothers place less emphasis upon the use of language in the statements within the skill area. 5 Thus the working-class mothers, relative to middle-class mothers, place greater emphasis upon the use of language when responding to the statements in the skill area. In the case of control over persons, we have suggested that the forms of such control in the middle class arise out of a social structure which is realized through the use of elaborated codes, whereas the forms of control in the sub-group of the working class under examination arise out of a social structure which is realized through forms of a restricted code.

As a result, the form of control in the middle class induces a reflexive relation upon the part of the child towards the social order, whereas in the working class the forms of control induce a much less reflexive relation to the social order. We should point out that a developed reflexive relation to the social order does not necessarily imply role-distancing behaviour. In the same way, reduced reflexiveness to a particularistic social order does not necessarily imply that role-distancing behaviour will not occur in relation to members of a society holding universalistic status.
