MetadataShow full item record
This research study investigates the impact of parental gender on parenting styles, abilities and perceptions, and aims to discover whether the link between them exists. Semi-structured interviews were conducted using a convenience sample of three heterosexual parent couples and two homosexual parent couples of children under ten. Participants were questioned on their parenting views, and how they would respond to particular given scenarios. The responses from both genders were compared to deduce an answer to the research question. The findings showed inconclusive results; a mixture of similar and differing styles and opinions in relation to parental gender were revealed. The results highlighted the existence of some traditional and stereotypical gender roles and views. However, it also showed that roles have swapped in some cases, and there are views, styles and behaviours from Mothers and Fathers that are contingent. Furthermore, the findings of this demonstrate that it is not parental gender alone that influences these, but that it goes along with other contributing factors.
