Abstract

This study is designed to evaluate the relationship between bullying and aggression in preschool children, and the role bullying and aggression play in social competence among students in a preschool setting. This study will aim to examine the level of social competence in preschool children that initiate bullying, and also children that display aggressive acts towards peers. This research will also view the occurrence of bullying and aggression in regards to gender. It is hypothesized that: (a) males are more likely than females to initiate bullying acts, (b) males are more likely than females to initiate aggressive acts, and (c) females are more likely than males to be rated socially competent. ^
