Serbin, Lisa A.; And Others
Monographs of the Society for Research in Child Development, v58 n2 p1-74 1993
Examined the development of sex typing among 558 children aged 5-12 years. Several measures gathered information on sex typing, children's cognitive maturity, and children's exposure to sex-typed models at home. Found that children's knowledge of stereotypes, flexibility, and sex-typed personal preferences increased with age. Concludes that cognitive maturation and socialization experiences contributed to the development of sex typing. (BC)
