Compared how 8-, 10-, and 12-year-olds responded to provocation by a same- or an other-gender peer in a laboratory play session. Found that responses to other-gender peer were more negative than to same-gender peer during baseline and provocation periods. With other-gender partners, participants reported liking them less, trying less to get along, and coping by trying to play better rather than through verbal confrontation. (Author/KB)
