Peer-Relationships/Developmental psychology/Upton: During adolescence the development of peer relationships continues the trends started in childhood. In particular, the trend towards spending increasing amounts of time with peers persists in adolescence. It has been estimated that, in late adolescence, excluding time spent in the classroom, teens spend almost a third (29 per cent) of their waking hours with peers, more than double the amount spent with parents and other adults (13 per cent) (Csikszentmihalyi and Larson, 1984)(1). Adolescent peer interaction also takes place with less adult supervision than in childhood. >Friendship/adolescence/Developmental psychology.
