Mothers of sons and daughters: Different influences on gender development
Gender Development Research Conference

We examined mothers’ attitudes about gender norms in general, and about their own children’s gender-related behaviors. We also examined children’s knowledge about gender norms, their attitudes about gender norm violation, their toy preferences, their gender schematicity, and their knowledge of gender constancy. Relationships were not found between mothers’ attitudes and children’s knowledge or gender constancy, but they were found with children’s attitudes about norm violation, especially for sons.
