Description: This study is being conducted using unmoderated remote research (see DiscoveriesOnline.org for more information about this approach). In the first phase of this project, we are replicating an in-person study examining parent-child conversations about gender (Gelman, Taylor, & Nguyen, 2004) with updated materials. After parent-child dyads complete a book-reading task, we invite them to participate in two additional study sessions, one week apart: first a session measuring children’s gender beliefs, which they complete on their own, followed by a session measuring parents’ beliefs. In the next phase of this project, we will use unmoderated remote research to develop an intervention strategy to help parents talk to their children about gender in order to limit the development of gender stereotypes, as we track the development of children’s beliefs longitudinally across early childhood.
