Harding, Ansie; Engelbrecht, Johann – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2007

East, Patricia L.; Jacobson, Leanne J. – Family Relations, 2000
Article critically appraises the sibling-comparison method by discussing its limitations: it assumes within-family homogeneity; it neglects naturally occurring heterogeneity across siblings; it overlooks unique effects of a teen's childbearing for her family and siblings; it underappreciates the selectivity of sisters of teenage mothers who delay…
