Child Behaviors Leading to Peer Rejection: A View from the Peer Group.
Waas, Gregory A.; Graczyk, Patricia A.
Child Study Journal, v29 n4 p291-306 1999
Examined children's perceptions of peer behaviors to identify those likely to result in social rejection. Found three behavior groups leading to negative peer evaluation: academic- disruptive, anxious-depressed, and aggressive-antisocial. Found younger children were more negative toward disruptive and aggressive behavior, older children more negative toward withdrawn behavior, boys more negative toward internalizing behaviors, and girls more negative toward externalizing behaviors.
