We examined relationships between parents’ own gender-related interests and attitudes and their 3- to 11-year-old children’s gender typical traits and interests. Parent interests were not often related to child characteristics, but parent attitudes were, especially attitudes about child behavior. Conservative parents had more gender typical children.
