Social Relationships and Their Developmental Significance.
Hartup, Willard W.
American Psychologist, v44 n2 p120-26 Feb 1989

These two types of relationships serve different functions in children's development and emerge at different times; their quality affects them in enduring ways. (Author/BJV)
