Relationships Between Fathers' Reported and Observed Behaviors with Daughters.
Osofsky, Joy D.
Comparisons between observed behaviors of fathers in a structured interaction situation with their five-year-old daughters and their reported behaviors as obtained from an interview are studied. Several consistencies and some differences were found. Consistencies occurred more often in fathers' helping and demanding behaviors, as well as in their behaviors indicating non-involvement with child. Inconsistencies were most frequent in their reported and observed degree of encouragement of child's independence. Issues related to fathers' role in child rearing and to influence of methodology upon results obtained with different techniques were discussed. (Author/NF)
