Mothers' Responses to Sons and Daughters Engaging in Injury-Risk Behaviors on a Playground: Implications for Sex Differences in Injury Rates.
Morrongiello, Barbara A.; Dawber, Tess
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v76 n2 p89-103 Jun 2000
Examined mothers' interventions of videotaped children engaging in injury-risk playground activities. Found mothers of daughters were more likely to judge behaviors as posing injury risk and intervened more frequently and quickly than mothers of sons; intervention speed positively correlated with children's injury history and risk-taking; daughters received more cautions and statements communicating injury vulnerability and sons more risk-taking encouragement.
