Sibling Differentiation in Adolescence: Implications for Behavioral Genetic Theory.
Feinberg, Mark E.; Hetherington, E. Mavis
Child Development, v71 n6 p1512-24 Nov-Dec 2000
Examined whether differentiating processes existed for 7 composite indices of positive and negative adolescent adjustment in 720 sibling pairs. Found that siblings born 1 year apart at Time 1 were more similar to each other than were siblings born 2 years apart, suggesting that shared environmental influences counteract sibling differentiation processes. Sibling differentiation was unrelated to positivity and negativity. (Author/KB)
