Halle, Tamara G.
Merrill-Palmer Quarterly, v45 n3 445-67 Jul 1999
Examined gender, friendship, and contrast in choices for potential social partners among 122 children, ages 4 to 8 years. Found that gender and friendship are equal factors for the younger participants, and that friendship status moderates the influence of gender on social reasoning as children age. (LBT)
