The Role of Parents in the Socialization of Children: An Historical Overview.
Maccoby, Eleanor E.
Developmental Psychology, v28 n6 p1006-17 Nov 1992
Behaviorism and psychoanalytic theory, prevalent early in this century, declined at midcentury. Theorists subsequently developed domain-specific theories of socialization, which were influenced by, or resulted in, changing conceptions of children's identification with their parents, changing definitions of optimal parenting, and an understanding of the role of affect in socialization.
