Children's Fears: Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf?
Beale, Claudette J.; Baskin, David
A quasi-random sample of 58 children ranging from 6 to 12 years of age was administered a questionnaire consisting of 38 items designed to identify persons and things that they feared, that made them uncomfortable, and that they disliked. Children in the sample were either Black or Hispanic; distribution of males and females was uniform. While some subjects filled out a questionnaire individually, over 95% of participants had low reading abilities and were administered the questionnaire by an interviewer. Differences and similarities between male and female subjects are discussed, and areas for further inquiry are suggested. (Author/RH)
