Nucci, Larry; Smetana, Judith G.
Child Development, v67 n4 p1870-86 Aug 1996
Investigated mothers and children's concepts of children's areas of personal discretion, autonomy, and individuality. Findings indicated that mothers viewed their roles as educators and nurturers and valued the development of individuality in their children. Gender differences were found in the ways mothers characterized boys' and girls' resistance to parental authority and in the content of mother-child disputes. (MOK)
