Having a sibling is a true blessing in terms of time one spends with a brother or a sister during childhood. Even when parents may be busy or may not understand your little problems, your sibling is most likely to help you get out of your problems. However, siblings also tend to have their small little squabbles over things like unwanted borrowing of a clothing item, or arguments over fairness, such as whose turn it is to play a new video game etc. Although adults mostly do not think of these squabbles as anything to be concerned about, a new study suggests that these arguments between children represent two specific types of sibling conflict that can have different effects on a youth's emotional health. The study by a psychologist from University of Missouri psychologist suggests that the findings of this research may help parents better understand how to bring peace among children and at home, and how to encourage a healthy psychological development in children.
