Biases in Quality Attribution to Mother-Child and Caregiver-Child Interaction.
Shpancer, Noam; Britner, Preston A.
Early Childhood Research Quarterly, v10 n2 p249-59 Jun 1995
Examined the possible existence, direction, and nature of subconscious, cognitive biases in participants' quality attributions to maternal and nonmaternal child-care interactions, the relationship of such biases to subject's background, and their attitudes toward child care and maternal employment. Potential explanations for the biases and the possible invalidity of attitude questionnaires in the detection of these biases are discussed. (AA)
