Objective: Know the variables of the adaptive behaviours of children which serve to predict the maternal stress dimension of dysfunctional interaction.

Method: Participated 18 children (5 girls and 13 boys) of 20 months-7 day average of age and their respectively mothers. All children were attending at the nursery for the first time. The mothers completed the questionnaire of parental stress of Abidin (PSI – short form) and the Adaptive behaviour’s scale of the Bayley third edition Children Behaviour Assessment Scales; when their children age were between 12 months 6 days and 29 months 15 days.

Results: Mothers which tend to perceive more dysfunctional interaction with their children observed that they have a worse motor execution, are less involved in activities of home playing, do not use to have interest in outside home activities, do not have much capacity to display caution and avoid physical hazards, are less talkers or less communicative and do not relate properly with other people.
Conclusion: Children’s adaptive behaviors, have an impact on their mother’s perception of the quality of their mother-child relations, and these have an effect on children development as well.
Keywords: Adaptive development, behaviour problems, maternal stress, BSID-III.
