Differences in Children’s Friendships
In the novel Children’s Friendships: The Beginning of Intimacy, Judy Dunn gives her readers a look into the relationships of toddlers, preschoolers, and school children. Chapter 4 talks about what factors might contribute to the different types of friendships children have at a young age. Although she lists some potential factors that contribute to her research question, none have been proven true. A reason for this is that children in preschool and kindergarten are too young, so she cannot give solid evidence.
