Parent-Child Symbolic Play: Three Theories in Search of an Effect.
Bornstein, Marc H.; Tamis-LeMonda, Catherine S.
Developmental Review, v15 n4 p382-400 Dec 1995
Reviews research on influences on children's symbolic play. Finds little support for the effects of child-adult symbolic play interactions on child solitary play. Discusses three theoretical perspectives that should support these effects: attachment, ethological, and scaffolding theories. Reconsiders the essence of specific variables affecting children's symbolic play. (JW)
