Toddler-Caregiver Interaction: The Effect of Temperament.
Watson, Joanna; Kowalski, Helen
Early Child Development and Care, v159 p53-73 Dec 1999
Examined effect of toddler temperament on caregiver-toddler interaction in child care. Found that children classified as difficult attracted significantly more attention, not necessarily positive, from caregivers. Children rated as easy were overlooked more often than others. Children's sociability/withdrawal made little difference to caregiver response. High center quality predicted more positive and fewer negative interactions, especially with temperamentally vulnerable children. (Author/KB)
