Lindsey, Eric W.; Mize, Jacquelyn; Pettit, Gregory S.
Sex Roles: A Journal of Research, v37 n9-10 p643-61 Nov 1997
Examines the extent of mothers' and fathers' involvement in children's play, and stylistic variations in that play. Results from 35 preschool children from multiethnic families reveal boys played differently than girls and parental involvement was also different. Parent's different interactions with sons' versus daughters' playing shows that parental involvement was a function of both the child's and parent's sex. (GR)
