A study asked 1,729 children and adolescents (second to ninth grades) in South Africa, Iceland, Poland, Australia, the United Kingdom, and the United States to rate the unpleasantness of 20 stressful life events. Results indicated that the loss of a parent was most upsetting and a new sibling was least upsetting for subjects in all countries except Poland, where a new sibling led the list. (MOK)
