Ogle, Jennifer Paff; Damhorst, Mary Lynn
Family and Consumer Sciences Research Journal, v28 n4 p428-62 Jun 2000

Dieting/watching patterns varied in content, duration, and intent. Daughters' modeling of mothers' behavior varied depending on degree of identification with mothers or mothers' verbal reinforcement.
