The Emergence of Gender Segregation in Toddler Playgroups.
Serbin, Lisa A.; And Others
New Directions for Child Development, n65 p7-18 Fall 1994
A naturalistic study of toddler playgroups examined factors that might encourage gender segregation. Results revealed that play in same-sex contexts facilitates social interaction, whereas in mixed-sex contexts, play leads to passive social relations. Toddlers who segregated were more behaviorally sex-typed. Preferences for sex-typed toys did not seem to be an important factor influencing gender segregation. (BAC)
