    Friends serve central functions for children that parents do not, and they play a critical role in shaping children’s social skills and their sense of identity. . . . The difference between a child with close friendships and a child who wants to make friends but is unable to can be the difference between a child who is happy and a child who is distressed in one large area of life.
    —Zick Rubin (20th century)

    Friends don’t snatch or act snobby, and they don’t argue or disagree. If you’re nice to them, they’ll be nice to you.
    Julie, U.S. child, age eight. As quoted in Children’s Friendships&NT,: by Zick Rubin, ch. 3 (1980)
