Adolescents' Sex-Typed Friendship Experiences: Does Having a Sister versus a Brother Matter?
Updegraff, Kimberly A.; McHale, Susan M.; Crouter, Ann C.
Child Development, v71 n6 p1597-1610 Nov-Dec 2000
Examined connections between having a sister versus a brother and coming from a same-sex versus an opposite-sex sibling dyad, and sex-typing in adolescents' friendships. Findings suggested that sisters may learn control tactics from brothers that they apply in friendships. Boys were less likely to model emotional intimacy. Coming from opposite-sex sibling dyads was linked to sex-typing in friends' personal attributes. (Author/KB)
