Abstract:

This study was planned and conducted in order to determine parents' gender roles and their influence on children and their attitudes towards responsibility. The study involved 600 people (405 men, 195 women) selected through a random sampling method from a total of 3536 staff from Hacettepe University. The instruments used in this study consisted of 4 parts: personal information survey, responsibility and satisfaction surveys, and the adapted Turkish version of the Bem Sex Role Inventory (BSRI). Two-way ANOVA (2 × 4 factorial design) methods were used for the research questions. According to the results of the study, it is evident that mothers are more involved in childcare than fathers. However, gender roles, classified as “androgynous”, “masculine”, “feminine” and “undifferentiated”, do not seem to have a significant effect on the amount of time a parent spends with his/her children.
