Adult Children as Caregivers: Egocentric Biases in Judgments of Sibling Contributions.
Lerner, Melvin J.; And Others
Gerontologist, v31 n6 p746-55 Dec 1991
Examined caregivers' views of their own and their siblings' costs and contributions to parent care. Respondents viewed siblings' responses to parents' needs as remarkably similar to their own, in spite of no actual similarity. Despite perceived similarities, respondents perceived siblings as contributing less, gaining less satisfaction, feeling freer to alter caregiving, and being resistant to increasing relative contributions.
