Sex Differences in Children's Verbal Aggression.
McCabe, Allyssa; Lipscomb, Thomas J.
Merrill-Palmer Quarterly, v34 n4 p389-401 Oct 1988
Used an event-sampling procedure to determine developmental patterns of sex differences in verbal aggression of 32 nursery school children. Verbal aggression was more common than physical aggression for both sexes. Another study that sampled free speech of first, third, and fifth grade children found only fifth grade boys significantly more aggressive than girls. (SKC)
