Parental Age and the Effectiveness of Modeled Behavior and Modeling Cues.
Kearney, Deborah; And Others
A two-group independent design was employed to study the relationship between parental age and modeling effectiveness. Subjects were 50 mother-father-child triads. The child's baseline data was recorded on a task that involved constructing a specified geometric shape on a pegboard. Then the child was asked to construct another shape modeling his parents. Evaluators recorded data on task completion, time, number and color of pegs used, sequence of peg placement, and type and number of parental modeling cues. Results showed that parental age is not significantly related to the number of total cues, to specific types of cues, to task improvement following parental modeling as measured by task completion, time, number of pegs used, and sequence of peg placement, or to modeling of peg color choice. Younger children were given significantly more total cues than older children by both mothers and fathers. (Author)
