Peer Social Status and Friendship: Independent Contributors to Children's Social and Academic Adjustment.
Vandell, Deborah Lowe; Hembree, Sheri E.
Merrill-Palmer Quarterly, v40 n4 p461-77 Oct 1994
Examined children's social status, friendship, and adjustment. Found that peer relationships contributed uniquely to children's socioemotional adjustment, academic performance, and self-concept. Peer status also affected adjustment, with peer rejection and neglect being significant negative predictors. Effects of friendship appeared positive, with increases in the number of classroom friendships predictive of better socioemotional and academic adjustment. (AA)
