The Evolution of Early Individual Differences in Orientation Towards Peers.
Bronson, Wanda C.; Pankey, William B.
The research described is based on videotapes of 40 toddlers interacting with peers during 10 small playgroup sessions spaced throughout the children's second year of life. The paper outlines the development of an observational system for studying the development of peer relations in toddlers, considers the behavioral forms which characterize peer directed behavior at different periods within the second year and examines coherence over time among these forms. Also touched on are the issues of individual differences and their stability. (JMB)
