dc.description Examined children's responses to threats of victimization and their perceptions of the effectiveness of their responses in a sample of 1,042 male and 958 female 10-16 yr olds. Survey data were gathered from Ss regarding victimization experiences, prevention responses, protective efficacy, victimization-related injury, and the preferred victimization response of Ss' fathers. Boys, especially those in their teens, used more aggressive forms of resistance than did younger Ss and girls, and felt those strategies had been more effective. Ss advised by their fathers to stand up and fight also felt more successful using aggressive resistance. Results suggest that different children may feel more successful with different protection strategies, arguing against a unifaceted approach to victimization prevention.
