      • Lab playroom, 62 pairs of same sex 5 years olds played for 20mins
      • Rated for pro-social behaviour (Talking politely, smiling, helping)
      • Rated for aggression (throwing, hitting, teasing)
      • Parents completed questionnaires on day care experience, temperament and behaviour problems
    • Findings
      • Little or no day care= more likely to behave pro scoailly
      • Those with difficult temperament showed less pro social behaviour
      • Boys more aggressive and more pro social than girls
