Age Patterns in the Development of Children's Gender-Role Stereotypes.
Albert, Alexa A.; Porter, Judith R.
Sex Roles: A Journal of Research, v9 n1 p59-67 Jan 1983
Research found that young children associated with their own sex those sex role stereotypes that are highly valued in American culture. Four-year-olds were less willing than five- and six-year-olds to associate positive stereotyoes with the opposite sex and to apply negative stereotypes to their own sex. (Author/MJL)
