We are grateful to the children and parents who graciously agreed to participate in this study. We would also like to thank all those who assisted with participant recruitment, data collection, data entry, and observational coding, especially: Haley Stephens, Alison McGrath, Keshia Bentick, Amanda Daily, Katherine Fishbein, Ashley Hunt, Hye Su Kim, and Jenny Marceron.


We examined associations between children’s sociometric status and (a) observed parental feedback as well as (b) child aggression. Participants were 94 children ages 6–10 (64 male; 44 with ADHD) and their parents. Children’s peer status, parental feedback to their children, and child aggression were all assessed during lab-based playgroups of four children and their parents. Parent criticism in front of the child’s peers was associated with the child receiving more negative (“disliked”) and fewer positive (“liked”) nominations, but only for children who displayed aggression; this interaction applied almost exclusively to children with ADHD. Parent praise in front of peers was associated with fewer negative nominations when children displayed low levels of aggression, but more at higher levels. Additional analyses revealed that relationships did not exist in the full sample between privately-given parental feedback and children’s peer status. Processes by which peers use overheard adult feedback to inform their assessments of children are discussed.
