Who will children accept and reject from their social groups? How does this change as they progress through middle childhood? How do they reason about intergroup prejudice, and how do they react when an ingroup member does something undesirable or disloyal? In this talk I will describe evidence a series of experiments testing the ‘developmental model of subjective group dynamics’. This model blends social psychological theory on social identity, the ‘black sheep effect’ and deviance with developmental theory on prejudice and intergroup relations in childhood. This model poses challenges and new questions for established theories in both the social and developmental areas.
