Child Development, v72 n2 p569-82 Mar-Apr 2001
Examined relations between quality of mothers' and fathers' friendships and that of their children's friendships. Found that children's self-reports and observational measures of friendship quality were not highly correlated for girls, but were moderately associated for boys. Quality of mothers' and fathers' friendships related to quality of children's friendships, but the nature of the relation differed by sex. (Author/KB)
