Leinbach, Mary Driver; Fagot, Beverly I.
Sex Roles: A Journal of Research, v25 n5-6 p269-84 Sep 1991
Attractiveness ratings of 50 children (26 males and 24 females) aged 12-38 months are studied in relation to adults' socializing behavior and attitude toward them. Correlations between attractiveness scores and child behavior reflect sex differences. A greater impact of attractiveness on girls' development than boys is noted. (SLD)
