Mother-Son, Mother-Daughter, Father-Son, and Father-Daughter: Are They Distinct Relationships?
Russell, Alan; Saebel, Judith
Developmental Review, v17 n2 p111-47 Jun 1997
Reviews literature for strongest position with respect to sex differences in parent-child relationships, namely that both parents' sex and child's sex contribute to four distinct dyad relationships. Found many claims and assumptions about the distinctness of relationships but little empirical evidence. When dyadic distinctness was found, it often was for relationship measures of closeness/cohesion and affective reactions. (HTH)
