A Study of Friendship Characteristics and Problem Behaviors among Middle Adolescents.
Windle, Michael
Child Development, v65 n6 p1764-77 Dec 1994
Examined individual differences in friendship characteristics and their cross-sectional and longitudinal interrelations with adolescent problems. Assessed four salient friendship characteristics: reciprocity of relations, overt hostility, covert hostility, and self-disclosure. Suggests that adolescent problem behaviors have a more potent prospective influence on friendship characteristics than vice versa; attributes these findings to both friendship selection and friendship influence.
