Toward Understanding Mutual Antipathies in Childhood and Adolescence
Hartup, Willard W.
New Directions for Child and Adolescent Development, n102 p111-123 Win 2003
Close relationships among children and adolescents are ordinarily considered to encompass friendliness and fun. Recent studies, however, reveal that many friendships have dark sides consisting of competitiveness, hostility, and conflict. Relationships based on aversion and antipathy may turn out to have major developmental implications, but more refined analysis is needed to support this assertion. Early studies of mutual antipathies and their developmental significance have raised a number of questions. Seven of those questions are examined in this chapter.
