In contrast, eight-year-olds are typically ignored and ten-year-olds are responded to negatively (Fry and Willis 1971). So as adults we tolerate the breaking of intimacy distance rules if the perpetrator is a young child, but not if they are ten years of age or older. There are lots of possible reasons for this. Perhaps we simply don’t expect young children to be aware of the rules or to obey them. Furthermore, young children are far less threatening than older children and therefore any violation of personal space is unlikely to be interpreted as a threat or signal of dominance.
There are a number of factors that give adults ‘power’ over children. One very basic one is that we are bigger than children and this automatically signals dominance to them. Also adults are normally the responsible ones taking care of the children. So there is an inherent asymmetry in adult–child interactions. Typically both parties see the adult as having the upper hand. We can use non-verbal signals sensitively in order to redress the balance. Greetings should obviously show warmth and sometimes affection.
