Much of what we know about how teens make and keep friends comes from the research based upon younger children (Frankel & Myatt, 2003). We have successfully extrapolated these findings to apply to teens. By extrapolation, successful entries into a group of teens in conversation may begin with low-risk tactics such as waiting and listening until positive feedback from the conversing peers permits entry (cf., Dodge, Schlundt, Schocken, & Delugach 1983; Garvey, 1984). Unsuccessful entry attempts might include disrupting an ongoing conversation by asking for information or disagreeing (Coie & Kupersmidt, 1983).
