Relational Aggression and Peer Relations: Gender and Developmental Issues.
Rys, Gail S.; Bear, George G.
Merrill-Palmer Quarterly, v43 n1 p87-106 Jan 1997
Examined the relationship between three behaviors (physical aggression, relational aggression, and prosocial behaviors) and three social outcomes (peer rejection, acceptance, and reciprocal friendships) in 131 third-graders and 135 sixth-graders. Found that among girls, but not boys, relational aggression explained variance in rejection beyond that explained by overt aggression. (MDM)
