Differential Associations between Domains of Sibling Conflict and Adolescent Emotional Adjustment
Campione-Barr, Nicole; Greer, Kelly Bassett; Kruse, Anna
Child Development, v84 n3 p938-954 May-Jun 2013
Issues of equality and fairness and invasion of the personal domain, 2 previously identified topic areas of adolescent sibling conflict (N. Campione-Barr & J. G. Smetana, 2010), were examined in 145 dyads ("M" [subscript first-born] = 14.97, "SD" = 1.69 years; "M" [subscript second-born] = 12.20, "SD" = 1.90 years) for their differential effects on youths' emotional adjustment over 1 year. The impact of internalizing symptoms on later sibling conflicts also was tested. Invasion of the personal domain conflicts were associated with higher levels of anxiety and lower self-esteem 1 year later, whereas Equality and Fairness issues were associated with greater depressed mood. Conversely, greater internalizing symptomatology and lower self-esteem predicted more of both types of conflict. Moderating influences of gender and ordinal position were also examined. (Contains 6 figures and 6 tables.) [Additional supporting information may be found in the online version of this article at the publisher's website.]
