« Numerous studies have emphasized the differences in the interactive styles of mothers and fathers with their child. Moreover, biological explanations of these parenting styles have generally been proposed without considering the influence of the social and cultural context in which families are immersed. With the majority of mothers now in the workforce in western countries, and the greater emphasis on fathers involvement with their child, significant changes may emerge in fathers’ and mothers’ patterns of interaction with their child. Based on a systemic perspective of parenting roles, the aim of the present study was to compare interactional synchrony in mother-child and father-child dyads in dualearner families from the French province of Québec, Canada. » (p. 132)
