Abstract

In an investigation of gender-based differences in autonomy and relatedness in the mother-toddler dyad, gender-specific stylistic differences were found in mothers' sensitivity toward their toddlers. In the context of greater sensitivity, boys appeared to control the flow of interactions (initiation and maintenance) to a greater extent than did girls.
