Abstract or Summary
  • This study examines the effect of mood and fairness of treatment on children's generosity toward peers. Thirty-one third and nineteen fourth grade males participated. A positive or negative mood was induced using recorded stories. Each child then played a ring toss game for which he had been promised a certain number of tokens for playing. Three equity conditions were established by under-, over-, or properly paying the amount promised. Children were given the opportunity to anonymously donate to non-present peers who would not have a chance to play. While the mood manipulation had an effect on observed facial expression in third graders (p < .05), there was no similar effect for the fourth graders. There was no significant differences for mood, equity condition, or grade on donations. A marginally significant (p < .08) interaction did occur between the three variables for amount donated. The results of this study suggest that generosity to others involves both cognitive and affective components.
