Attachment Security, Parent Peer Management Practices, and Peer Relationships in Preschoolers.
Kerns, Kathryn A.; Cole, AmyKay; Andrews, Philip B.
Merrill-Palmer Quarterly, v44 n4 p504-22 Oct 1998
Investigated the links between attachment and parent peer-management practices, and how each is related to children's home-based peer networks, in a sample of preschoolers and their parents. Found that most securely attached girls, but not boys, were more involved in initiating their peer contacts; home-based peer networks were related to parent management practices but not to attachment security.
