Patterson (1992, 1997) has concluded that these children do not exhibit significant problems in their psychosexual development. They are happy with the sex to which they belong; they have no wish to be members of the opposite sex; and their interests in and preferences for activities are no different from those of other children. Furthermore, there is no evidence that the number of children raised by gay or lesbian parents who as adults identify themselves as homosexual exceeds that expected in the population at large.

Belsky (1984) argues that the influence of parenting history is more likely to be indirect; he states that “in general, supportive developmental experiences give rise to a mature, healthy personality, [one] that is then capable of providing sensitive parental care which fosters optimal child development” (p. 86). A study by Crockenberg (1987) illustrates how parenting history is important in determining current parent behavior. She found that adolescent mothers who had been rejected as children were more angry and punitive with their own children than nonrejected adolescent mothers were.

Moreover, increased cognitive skills allow a child better control over his or her impulses and behavior. Parental standards and rules become internalized, to the extent that the child can use these to guide behavior in the absence of authority figures. It is not surprising that school/academic problems are the most common referral concerns at this age (Campbell, 1998). The transition from preschool to elementary school is often difficult, and many children with learning and/or behavior problems are identified at this time.
