Maternal Reports of Behavior of Siblings of Children with Down Syndrome.
Cuskelly, M.; Gunn, P.
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v97 n5 p521-29 Mar 1993
Mothers of 137 children (with or without a sibling having Down's syndrome) were interviewed regarding their child without Down's syndrome. There were no significant differences between groups regarding expectations of "typical" children, but mothers of girls with a Down's syndrome sibling reported significantly more conduct problems than did other mothers.
