FARKAS, Chamarrita et al. Comparative study of sensitivity among mothers and education personnel in their interactions with one-year old girls and boys. Perfiles educativos [online]. 2015, vol.37, n.148, pp.16-33. ISSN 0185-2698.

Sensitive response is an adult's ability to understand a child's cues and respond to them in a timely fashion. Different studies show that significant adults with high sensitivity promote secure ties and adequate socio-economic development. This study analyzes similarities and differences in the sensitivity of significant adults (mothers, educators) in their free-play interactions with one-year old girls and boys. The sample consisted of 226 adults (104 mothers and 122 education personnel). The results show significant differences between mothers and education personnel, having observed greater sensitivity among female educators. Moreover, variations in sensitivity were associated with the mother's age, socioeconomic level and education level, whereas in the case of education personnel, variations were related to their role (educator, technical) and the time they have known the child.
