Abstract: Research in the area of peer social behaviors of children has been approached primarily through observational and correlational studies. Knowledge with respect to the variables controlling the acquisition and maintenance of social behavior in very young children has only recently begun to be examined. Research has suggested that brief periods of social deprivation and satiation can alter the effectiveness of social reinforcers, but these procedures have not been examined as variables controlling peer social behavior. A survey of the literature has also indicated a lack of consistent findings with respect to sex differences and peer social behavior.
