Summary

The sex role choices of preschool children were observed for two years in a free play situation to determine what the consequences of such choices are for the types of play chosen and for social behaviors. The sex role factor was plotted on four quadrants: Masculine (M), Feminine (F), Androgynous and Low on both M and F (LMF). The children who chose non-traditional sex role behavior patterns pay a price in social consequences for their particular choices. Children in the Low M/F category played alone more often and received significantly fewer positive peer and teacher reactions than children in the other three quadrants. Children in the androgynous category received less peer reaction than children in the M or F quadrants but more than children in the LMF quadrant. Androgynous children received more negative peer feedback than children in the other three quadrants. (BN)
