Results revealed that college students were significantly more punitive toward a child labeled "mentally retarded" than were fourth graders, the labeled child received a significantly less severe punishment than did the nonlabeled child, and the child received the most severe punishment when s/he reacted defiantly and obtained a reward when s/he responded with reparation.
