English term or phrase: playground politics
I was wondering whether "playground politics" in the passage below might mean "social dynamics", maybe also "conflictual dynamics" or maybe is it more "power relationships", establishing hierarchies in the social groups?
The author is talking about the importance of play for children.
Thank you very much for your help!


Children's social, relational, and even rhetorical skills improve when they play, as they have to negotiate ** playground politics ** and determine a game's or a group's explicit and implicit rules
