Mondschein, Emily R.; Adolph, Karen E.; Tamis-LeMonda, Catherine S.
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v77 n4 p304-16 Dec 2000
Examined influence of child's sex on mothers' expectations about their 11-month-olds' motor development. Found that mothers of girls underestimated their performance on the novel task of crawling down steep and shallow slopes and mothers of boys overestimated their performance. Girls and boys exhibited identical levels of motor performance during the task. (Author/KB)
