What were your friendships like in middle childhood(ages 6-12)? Think back to your middle childhood years and write a one page journal entry exploring your peer relationships, using terms and concepts from the chapter as you reflect. Were you in a clique and/or a crowd? If so, what were the features of your fellow clique/crowd members? Did you co-ruminate with friends; if so, do you think this was healthy or harmful for your development? Where did you fall in the dominance hierarchy? What category of peer status do you think you were in (popular, rejected, average, controversial, neglected)? How did this categorization affect you at the time and, if at all, since that time?
