American Adolescents Touch Each Other Less and Are More Aggressive toward Their Peers as Compared with French Adolescents.
Field, Tiffany
Adolescence, v34 n136 p753-58 Win 1999
Forty adolescents were observed at McDonald's restaurants in Miami and Paris to assess the amount of touching and aggression during their peer interactions. The American adolescents spent less time leaning against, stroking, kissing, and hugging their peers than did the French adolescents. Instead, they showed more self-touching and more aggressive verbal and physical behavior. (Contains 12 references.) (Author)
