C HAPTER F OURTEEN : Developmental Trends in Aggression (566) - Florence Goodenough: study asking mothers of 2- to 5-year olds to keep diaries where they wrote details about their children’s angry outbursts. o Data showed that unfocused temper tantrums are less common between ages 2 and 3 as children beging to physically retaliate (hitting/kicking) when they are frustrated or attacked o Physical agression declines from age 3 to 5, but replaced by teasing, tattling, name-calling, etc. o These children usually fought about toys and possessions, and there aggression was “instrumental” in character. - NICHD Early Child Care Research Network: study physical aggression from span of toddlerhood to middle childhood, used mother’s reports of children’s level of physical aggression, assessed each year from when their children were 2 to 9 year old. o Children also decline in physical aggression over preschool years. o Developed 5 different patterns of developmental change across toddlerhood and middle childhood. Vast majority of children (70%) were rated LOW by their mothers in aggression across the entire study period. 27%:other children were moderate in physical aggression during at least some point in the study, these children however show decline of aggression with age 3% of children were labled as high levels of aggression that remained stable throughout the study - Some level of physical aggression is normal early in toddlerhood, but for more children this type of aggression is relatibely rare by middle childhood. - Only a small group of children appear to have problems with displays of physical aggression that remain relatively stable into middle childhood and that may be a cause of concern for development. -
