Children's Understanding of Aggression and Withdrawal as Social Stigmas: An Attributional Analysis.
Graham, Sandra; Hoehn, Susan
Child Development, v66 n4 p1143-61 Aug 1995
Three studies examined children's ability to differentiate aggression and social withdrawal using attributional constructs. Found that even very young children understand the meaning of responsibility and are capable of using it to act as intuitive judges, weighing the evidence to make inferences about responsibility and then meting out judgments that entail either punishment and rejection or forgiveness and acceptance.
