Sensitivity and Reciprocity in the Play of Adolescent Mothers and Young Fathers with Their Infants.
McGovern, Mary Ann
Family Relations, v39 n4 p427-31 Oct 1990
Videotaped play segments between 15 4-month-old infants with their adolescent mothers and then with their fathers. Findings indicated that fathers' type of play was very similar to mothers' with the exception that fathers engaged in more social play. Fathers were found to be less sensitive than mothers to their infants' communications and fathers demonstrated less reciprocity in interactions. (Author/NB)
