Sex-Related Differences in the Relationship Between Sibling Status and Responsivity to Babies.
Nash, Sharon Churnin; Feldman, S. Shirley
Sex Roles: A Journal of Research, v7 n10 p1035-42 Oct 1981
Middle-class children, divided by age, sex, and the presence/absence of younger siblings in the family, were studied to assess their interest in babies. The findings support MacDonald's contention that birth order effects are best understood as distinctive for each sex, especially when the behaviors investigated are sex-related. (Author/GC)
