Helping Your Child Make Friends - FamilyEducation.com: "Preschoolers make friends quickly and intensely. To your three-year-old, a 'friend' is anyone who is willing to play with her the way she wants to play at the moment. It could be someone she sees every day in the neighborhood or at day care. But it could just as well be someone she meets just once while playing in the park or playground or children's museum. (Even if she never sees that child again, your three-year-old may continue to refer to the child as 'my friend.') Your preschooler's friends are just as likely to be boys as girls, because most three-year-olds play with either sex equally well and seldom have a preference for one or the other."
