Not just children.  The old saying "Birds of a feather flock together" is generally true.  I remember a story I heard about the filming of the original "Planet Of The Apes" movie.  When they would break for lunch, dozens of extras in make-up and costume tended to segregate themselves, according to type.  Chimpanzees would sit with chimpanzees, gorillas gathered with gorillas, etc.  Evidently, there's a degree of security in being among your own kind.

I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

I think it depends on the child as well as his parents and the environment in which he lives. My grandson is an only child (so far); he plays with any child who's willing regardless of age, gender or ethnicity.
