Effects of "Sibling Aggression" On Kids Can Be Significant
Siblings fight. Almost any family with children knows this- and yet what we know about the effects of that fighting may be changing.
A new study from the University of New Hampshire shows that sibling aggression may leave deeper marks on children than we’ve previously understood.
Corinna Jenkins Tucker is an associated professor of family studies at the University of New Hampshire, and lead author of the new study, which appears in the July 2013 issue of Pediatrics. She explains the findings to All Things Considered host Brady Carlson.
