Parental Influence on Children's Socialization to Gender Roles.
Witt, Susan D.
Adolescence, v32 n126 p253-59 Sum 1997
Analyzes the impact of parental influence on gender role development and suggests that an androgynous gender role orientation may be more beneficial to children than a strict adherence to traditional gender roles. Families with one or more androgynous parents typically score highest on measures of parental warmth and support. (RJM)
