The Development of Aggression within Sibling Conflict.
Martin, Jacqueline L.; Ross, Hildy S.
Early Education and Development, v6 n4 p335-58 Oct 1995
A longitudinal study examined responses to physically aggressive conflicts among siblings. Found that parents respond to half of children's aggression (especially if there is crying). Most parent and child responses were simple commands to stop the aggression. Reasoning was used less often, and physical intervention, rarely. Aggression was higher in first-born children than siblings, but decreased over time. (TM)
