Examined the temporal relationship between peer rejection and aggression as seen in videotaped encounters among 86 preschoolers from 6 preschool classrooms. Found that acts of rejection were reliably coded. Aggressive acts and acts of rejection tended to occur closely together in time. Found a clear temporal pattern in which children were likely to be rejected shortly after exhibiting aggression. (Author/KB)
