Predicting Children's Friendship Status from Their Dyadic Interaction in Structured Situations of Potential Conflict.
Fonzi, Ada; And Others
Child Development, v68 n3 p496-506 Jun 1997
Followed 8-year olds' friendship dyads through school year to determine if they remained friends, and compared their interaction in structured potential conflict with nonfriend dyads. Found that friends made more proposals than nonfriends to negotiate object sharing, spent more time negotiating, compromised more, and showed more competitive behavior. Continuing friends showed greater sensitivity in negotiations than did noncontinuing friends. (Author/KB)
