Identified parenting behaviors portrayed in family-oriented, prime-time television programs. Results indicated television fathers were more active as parents than were mothers and both mothers and fathers were portrayed in traditional ways. Television children responded differently to performance of parental roles and to child rearing patterns according to sex of the television parent. (Author/BL)
