Sibling Conflict in Early Adolescence.
Raffaelli, Marcela
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v54 n3 p652-63 Aug 1992
Examined sibling conflict and relationship qualities among 104 10-15 year olds. Data suggest that sibling conflict fulfills several functions in early adolescence, including reinforcing family and relationship rules and delineating interpersonal boundaries. Few differences attributable to age or gender constellation of sibling dyad emerged. Sibling conflict appears to create context where individuation and differentiation are played out. (Author/NB)
