The Everyday Contexts and Social Functions of Spontaneous Mother-Child Pretend Play in the Home.
Haight, Wendy L.; And Others
Merrill-Palmer Quarterly, v40 n4 p509-22 Oct 1994
Examined the spontaneous pretend play of mothers and children from the inception of pretend play in late infancy through its elaboration during the preschool years. Suggests that although mothers and young children had different primary motives for initiating pretend play, they both capitalized upon the others' interests in, or support of, pretend play to flexibly negotiated routine interactions.
