Paludi, Michele, A.; Gullo, Dominic F.
Sex Roles, v16 n1-2 p19-30 Jan 1987
Adults indicated on questionnaires the age at which they believed infants were first able to perform various developmental skills. Some questionnaires asked about "boys," some about "girls," and some about "babies." Contrary to previous findings, sex labels did not affect adults' rating of behaviors. (Author/LHW)
