Research Assignment Bristin Whitley July 31, 2018 In my observations of the 6-11 year olds I observed a group of children at a soccer clinic with defined social statuses. In just the two hours, I watched the relationships change and with that, the self esteem of the children. The boys and the girls defined their status by different means of social behavior. Humor and prosocial behavior were key to where the child was ranked among their peers. From the text, peers become more accepted if they have high social cognition. I especially recognized this with the girls in the group, that behaving in the right manner will increase your popularity. I think this was also very evident in this group because of the number of girls. There was a distinct leader of the girls and agreeable to the book, she demonstrated the highest level of prosocial behavior with her peers. She led confidently and socialized appropriately. She was talkative with her peers and listened to her friends and responded appropriately.
