The Development of Social Referencing.
Walden, Tedra A.; Ogan, Tamra A.
Child Development, v59 n5 p1230-40 Oct 1988
Investigated the development of social referencing (children's looks toward parents, instrumental toy behaviors, affective expressions, etc.) in 40 infants aged 6-9, 10-13, and 14-22 months. Results indicated that looking behavior of younger children may function differently from that of older children, and social referencing involves a number of component skills that develop throughout the first two years of life.
