Developmental Shifts in Oedipal Behaviors Related to Family Role Understanding.
Watson, Malcolm W.; Getz, Kenneth
New Directions for Child Development, n48 p29-46 Sum 1990
Representations of 40 3- to 6-year-olds' perceptions of Oedipal conflicts among family members were assessed through a doll-play task and parental diaries. Complementary information on children's understanding of family roles and age relativity was evaluated independently. Oedipal behaviors appeared to increase and then decrease during this age span.
