Early Attachment Relationships as Predictors of Preschool Children's Emotion Regulation with a Distressed Sibling.
Volling, Brenda L.
Early Education and Development, v12 n2 p185-207 Apr 2001
Examined relation of early attachment relationships and preschoolers' emotion regulation. Found that preschoolers who ignored younger siblings' distress were more likely to experience personal distress and use avoidant coping strategies. Preschoolers with insecure-resistant infant-mother attachment at 1 year were more likely to seek comfort from younger siblings and engage in more sibling conflict and hostility at 4 years.
