Developmental Trajectories of Sex‐Typed Behavior in Boys and Girls: A Longitudinal General Population Study of Children Aged 2.5–8 Years

Abstract: The stability of sex-typed behavior from the preschool to the middle school years was examined. The Preschool Activities Inventory, a measure of within-sex variation in sex-typed behavior, was completed by the primary caregiver when the child was 2.5, 3.5, and 5 years, and a modified version, the Child Activities Inventory, was completed by the child at age 8. The investigation involved a general population sample of 2,726 boys and 2,775 girls. Sex-typed behavior increased through the preschool years, and thos… Show more

“…Our results suggest that parental sexual orientation is not as influential in young children's gender development as previously thought (e.g., Baumrind, 1995). Rather than parental sexual orientation, biological influences and other gender-typed socialization influences are likely to be particularly important early in children's development (Golombok et al, 2008).…”

“…The population mean was 60 AE 10 for boys and 40 AE 10 for girls. Recently, gender role behavior of two-and-a-half year-old children was found to predict gender role behavior at age eight using the PSAI (Golombok et al, 2008). The overall sample means were 41.24 AE 11.05 for girl items and 62.15 AE 9.75 for boy items.…”

“…Au cours de l'enfance et durant l'adolescence, garçons et filles déve-loppent des centres d'intérêts spécifiques concernant les activités de jeux, sportives, de loisirs et l'apparence physique (Ayral & Raibaud, 2014b ;Bacou, 2008 ;Cherney & London, 2006 ;Court, 2010aCourt, , 2010bDavisse & Louveau, 1998 ;Golombok, Rust, Zervoulis et al, 2008 ;Mardon, 2010 ;Monnot, 2009 ;Octobre, Détrez, Mercklé et al, 2010). Les activités sportives, la télévision et les jeux vidéo sont les domaines privilé-giés des garçons, alors que les filles passent le plus de temps à regarder la télévision (Cherney & London, 2006).…”
