Abstract

This study looks at the qualities of the sibling relationship in divorced families by examining the questionnaire and interview data of children and custodial parents. The data is studied both quantitatively and qualitatively in order to obtain a richer portrait of the sibling relationship. Conclusions are drawn cautiously due to the small sample size, and to other methodological considerations. However, it appears that children from divorced families report a wide range of experiences. Additionally, children in the same family tend to report different experiences, and it seems that developmental issues have an important impact on the sibling relationship. Further research in this area should be conducted before definite conclusions are made.
