Park, Kathryn A.
Child Study Journal, v22 n4 p233-52 1992
Differences in 3-5 year olds' response to the ending of a friendship were studied by analyzing questionnaires completed by the children's mothers. Found that most children felt sad, and children's age and positive affect in the friendship predicted how sad they felt, after their friend moved away. (ME)
