An Observational Investigation of Sibling Interactions in Married and Divorced Families.
MacKinnon, Carol E.
Developmental Psychology, v25 n1 p36-44 Jan 1989
Results of this study of 96 sibling dyads demonstrated necessity of going beyond the examination of between-group differences in the study of divorce effects to look at the processes by which developmental outcomes for children are enhanced or undermined. Findings draw attention to the heightened vulnerability of dyads containing older boys in divorced families to noncompliance and negative interactions. (RH)
