Mothers' Knowledge about Children's Play and Language Development: Short-Term Stability and Interrelations.
Tamis-LeMonda, Catherine S.; Chen, Lisa A.; Bornstein, Marc H.
Developmental Psychology, v34 n1 p115-24 Jan 1998
Examined knowledge of mothers with children from 6 to 58 months regarding which item in play and language pairs was more advanced developmentally. Found that mothers' orderings matched those established in developmental literature and were stable over two weeks. Language knowledge was stronger than, and unrelated to, play knowledge. Accuracy was less for milestones their children mastered much earlier. (Author/KB)
