Details

M. Stuart et al. studied various aspects of grade-school children and their mothers. The researchers gave a questionnaire to parents of 66 children in kindergarten through second grade. Two social-class groups, middle and working, were identified based on the mother's occupation. One aspect of the study cross-classified social class (of the mother) and nursery-rhyme knowledge (of the child).
