Nurturance, Nurturance Withdrawal, and Resistance to Temptation Among Three Age Groups.
Saadatmand, Bijan; And Others
Previous researchers have presented conflicting data about the effects of nurturance and nurturance withdrawal on resistance to temptation among young girls. Age differences between the samples may have produced the conflicting experimental findings. In order to test this assertion, four-, six-, and eight-year-old female children were randomly assigned to either a nurturance or a nurturance withdrawal treatment which immediately preceded a resistance to temptation situation. Four-year-old girls in the nurturance condition deviated more in the temptation situation, but six-year-old girls in the nurturance condition deviated less. Nurturance and nurturance withdrawal did not differentially affect eight-year-olds, who deviated less than the younger children. (Author)
