Sex Differences in the Games Children Play
Lever, Janet
Social Problems, 23, 4, 479-488, Apr 76
According a more important role in the socialization process to the games children play, this study examines sex differences in childrens' playtime activities. A large body of new empirical data on fifth grade school children suggests that play and games equip boys with the social skills needed for occupational careers while equipping girls with the social skills better suited for family careers.
