The Resolution of Social Conflict between Friends.
Nelson, Janice; Aboud, Frances E.
Child Development, v56 n4 p1009-17 Aug 1985
Investigates whether third- and fourth-grade children respond differently to conflict with friends and acquaintances. Results support the view that conflict between friends promotes more social development than conflict between nonfriends. Discussion among friends disagreeing on answers to social problems resulted in more mature solutions than that of nonfriends. (Author/RH)
