Social Networks of Children, Adolescents, and College Students

By Suzanne Salzinger; John Antrobus et al. | Go to book overview

intimate friends. Is one intimate friend sufficient for self-esteem, or is that a given for most youth? Perhaps it is the number of highly intimate peers or the relative prestige of those peers that will be important. Finally, it should be noted that we did not examine the roles of all possible significant others in the adolescent's life. What impact, if any, do relationships with other adults and nonpeer youth have on self-esteem? Only future research can clarify such issues and overcome some of the limitations of the present research.
