Same-Sex Patterns and Sex Differences in the Trust-Value Basis of Children's Friendship.
Rotenberg, Ken J.
Sex Roles, v15 n11-12 p613-26 Dec 1986
A sample of grade four students reported the secret-sharing and promise-making behavior of classroom peers and judged those classmates on trust and friendship. Findings suggest that the same-sex friendship patterns are maintained by same-sex trust patterns through infrequent secret-sharing with opposite-sex peers and the perception that opposite-sex peers break secrets more frequently.
