Abstract: This study was designed to determine whether clothing is perceived by four-year old children to the extent of affecting social interaction with other children. Although the literature theorizes concerning children's interactions with others and their feelings about clothing, very little evidence is given to support these hypotheses. Pretesting was done at the Nursery School of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. For the study, the subjects were six boys and six girls selected from three preschools in Chapel Hill and Greensboro, North Carolina. Two girls and two boys from each of the preschools were subjects.
