The author describes a study of the familial environment of 25 young effeminate boys. In most cases the parents' relationship with each other and with the sons was good. The boys' closeness to their mothers and distance from their fathers appeared to reflect their interests from the beginning. There were no statistically significant differences between this and a similar group of noneffeminate boys.
