Children's Generosity as Influenced by Deservedness of Reward and Type of Recipient
Willis, Joyce B.; And Others
Journal of Educational Psychology, 69, 1, 33-5, Feb 77
Children were given the opportunity to donate money to a charity under conditions varying the recipient characteristics (crippled child vs. crippled adult) and the situation in which the child acquired his resources (earned vs. windfall). Findings showed greater generosity toward children than adults and increased generosity with age. Girls consistently donated more. (Author/MV)
