Temperament and Peer Acceptance in Early Childhood: Sex and Social Status Differences.
Walker, Sue; Berthelsen, Donna; Irving, Kym
Child Study Journal, v31 n3 p177-92 2001
Investigated relations between sex, social status, and temperament among preschool-age children. Found that rejected children had a higher activity level, higher distractibility, and lower persistence than popular children. Both rejected and neglected children were rated as displaying lower adaptability and more negative mood than popular children. Boys were rated as more active, more distractible, and less persistent than girls. (Author/KB)
