Entry Behaviors into Peer Dyads among Kindergarten Children
Song Yee Kim,Kyung Ja Park
The purpose of this study was to examine the entry behaviors of kindergarten children into peer dyads and the responses of the peer dyads in relation to the sex and sociometric status of the entering child. The subjects were 46 triads(138 children). Each triad consisted of two children of average peer status and one child of high/low peer status, identified by the Peer Rating Scale. The two children of the average peer status were placed in a small laboratory and were given a game to play. After the game had started, the child of high/low peer status entered into the laboratory. The behaviors of the entering child and the responses of the peer dyads were videotaped for 6 minutes. The data were analyzed by sex(2) × sociometric status (2) ANOVAs and χ²-tests. The results were as follows: (1)Popular children showed more group-oriented statements and fewer waiting behaviors than non-popular children. (2)Popular children elicited more positive responses and were less ignored than non-popular children. (3)The peer group responded positively to the entering child`s helping, agreeing, and giving group-oriented statements, and neglected the entering child`s waiting behaviors.
