Abstract [en]

Comments on the article by E. Maccoby (see chapter 14) concerning the influence of the parent and child's gender on family dynamics. In her chapter, Maccoby raises two key questions: Who is affecting whom in family interactions, and how does gender enter the picture? She concludes that concurrent interactions between parents and children cannot reveal whether effects are child-to-parent or parent-to-child, because one cannot bypass the previous history of parent-child interactions. Furthermore, when it comes to gender effects, understanding how boys differ from girls is essentially a matter of understanding parent-child interactions from a dyadic point of view. This commentary concentrates on two issues: bi-directionality and level of analysis on gender.
