Richards, Maryse H.; And Others
Psychology of Women Quarterly, v15 n1 p65-81 Mar 1991
Uses reports from interviews and questionnaires administered to 72 girls, 67 boys from two senior high schools to examine the effects of parenting on ego development and self-esteem. Encouraging, warmer mothering related more strongly to boys' ego development than to girls'. Higher self-esteem was related to boys' and girls' perception of their cross-sex parent as being warm and supportive. (CJS)
