Franco, Nathalie; Levitt, Mary J.
Family Relations, v47 n4 p315-21 Oct 1998
Study aims to examine the linkage between social support provided to children in the context of the family and the quality of children's friendships outside the family and to then determine whether family support and friendship quality contribute to the child's self-esteem. Across ethnic groups, family support was predictive of friendship quality and both were associated with self-esteem. (Author/GCP)
