For this topic, I would begin with the Psychology LibGuide at . Click on the gold Articles tab, and select the Psychology and Behavioral Sciences database.  You will be asked to enter your 6 digit student ID number and your email user name (jdoe or jdoe1, for example).

Searching "aggressive behavior" AND children AND socioeconomic status will yield good results, as will searching "aggressive behavior" AND children AND income. Be sure to include the quotation marks to get the phrase "aggressive behavior". The results include Letourneau, N. (2013). Socioeconomic status and child development: A Meta-analysis. Journal Of Emotional & Behavioral Disorders, 21(3), 211-224.

You could also try searching aggression AND children AND socioeconomic status

If you don't find enough results there, return to the LibGuide and try the same searches in PsycARTICLES or one of the other databases on the list.

Good luck with your research.
