Early Social Context As It Relates to Symbolic Play: A Longitudinal Investigation.
Stilson, Stephanie R.; Harding, Carol Gibb
Merrill-Palmer Quarterly, v43 n4 p682-93 Oct 1997
Examined the impact of early maternal interactive behaviors on children's symbolic play. Found that an option-promoting context in mother-infant dyads coexisted with the child's exhibition of symbolic play at 18 months and at 40 months. This context was stable between the two ages. An options-limiting interactive context at 40 months correlated with nonsymbolic play at 40 months. (KB)
