Examined the quality of parent-child relationships and the socioemotional and gender development of a community sample of 7-year-olds with lesbian parents, with two-parent heterosexual parents, or with single heterosexual mothers from the Avon Longitudinal Study of Parents and Children. Found no significant differences between lesbian mothers and heterosexual mothers for most parenting variables. Evidence pointed largely to positive mother-child relationships and well-adjusted children. (Author/KB)
