Pierce, Kim M.; Hamm, Jill V.; Vandell, Deborah Lowe
Child Development, v70 n3 p756-67 May-Jun 1999
Related children's experience in after-school programs to first grade performance. Found that staff positivity was associated with fewer boys' behavior problems, whereas staff negativity was related to boys' poorer reading/math grades. Program flexibility was associated with better boys' social skills. More frequent negative peer interactions in the programs were related to more behavior problems and poorer social skills.
