Children's Interventions into Family Conflict: Links with the Quality of Sibling Relationships.
Piotrowski, Caroline C.
Early Education and Development, v6 n4 p377-403 Oct 1995
Home observations recorded how 33-month-old younger siblings act as third-party interveners in family disputes. Disputes usually involved house rules when mother was absent. Children who supported elder siblings had more harmonious sibling relationships than those who did not support their siblings. Results demonstrate ways in which children are sensitive to the social responsiveness of other children. (TM)
