Crouter, Ann C.; Helms-Erikson, Heather; Updegraff, Kimberly; McHale, Susan M.
Child Development, v70 n1 p246-59 Jan-Feb 1999
Examined correlates of parents' knowledge about their children's daily experiences. Found between- and within-family differences as a function of mothers' work involvement, sibling composition, and children's and adults' personal qualities. Fathers knew more when mothers worked longer hours. Parents knew more about younger than older offspring. Both parents knew more about offspring of same sex than of opposite sex. (Author/KB)
