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.
