Because of gender segregation, we differentiated children's cognitions about same-gender and other-gender peers. We examined the influence of gender-based relationship efficacy for both own-gender and other-gender peers (GBRE-Own and GBRE-Other)…

The present study addresses these gaps via secondary analysis of 295 primarily low-income, Black postpartum women who agreed…
