By my opinion, it is natrural, that film director requring child actor first looks to his own family or families of main adult actors. Confidence of child actor to others is created slowly, and so work with such family actors is easier, since mutual confidence is easily reached. The same can be applied to child actors, which have directors or actors some premilinary experience with.

Thanks for the link, jkecal. If I remember the summaries correctly, Nell Potts played the younger version of Joan Woodward's character and is seen somewhat briefly in flashbacks so her screen time isn't high, but this is a "classic" - it got 4 Oscar nominations but couldn't beat out Planet of the Apes, 2001: A Space Odyssey, etc. and mostly fell off the radar. Thanks for bringing it here - maybe it can be split off into its own thread.
