Ages Four to Six Years: Changes in the Structures of Play Networks of Girls and Boys.
Benenson, Joyce F.
Merrill-Palmer Quarterly, v40 n4 p478-87 Oct 1994
Study of same-sex play networks found that between ages four and six, the size of girls' play networks decreases along with the number of girls excluded. Although results did not confirm the hypothesis that the size of boys' play networks increases, there was a trend for boys in the older classes to exclude fewer playmates from their networks. (AA)
