    All of the factors which you mention can influence friendship patterns among children, if they are socialized in in terms of the above characteristics. In addition outside the home , racism, classism , caste and religion play an important part in the process of socialization. So the major was to negate these aspects, are to be exposed to persons in all of the above categoriess.Classical examples are attending a segregated or religious school, not being sensitized to differences, and in fact intolerance of differences. An example is a Black doll.Many persons of both races pick dolls which have similar characteristics as the child. To undo racism for example one would have to expose children to different races and religions in the school, as well as playing with dolls of different races. These negative influences are ingrained in society and it's a real challenge to undo them.

    an surprisingly youthful newborn does not have a call, toddlers are toddlers...an older one must be exciting in what you're fidgeting with (a toy) or what you're doing, (figuring out on vegetation). As they become previous, women tend to type friendship with women, length, top, who they're around maximum frequently.....siblings, cousins, Church,community little ones, then classmates.

    if by young you mean elementary school...nothing really affects them. as far as i recall, everybody is friends with everybody. in middle school, it starts migrating toward having things in common with your friends. in high school, its a whole other story.
