Young Children's Views About Conflict With Peers: A Comparison of the Daughters and Sons of Depressed and Well Women

D F Hay et al. J Child Psychol Psychiatry. .

Abstract

Forty five-year-olds were interviewed about conflict with peers, based on a simulated dispute between two glove puppets. Recommendations about tactics to be used in resolving conflicts were affected by the child's gender and experience of being cared for by a depressed mother. In particular, the daughters of depressed women were less likely than other children to recommend aggressive solutions to peer conflict; in contrast, the sons of depressed women were more likely than others to advocate aggression. Girls in general recommended more socialized tactics than boys did.
