  Sibling - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Sibling is a generic term meaning brother or sister; that is, someone who shares a father and a mother with the person being referenced.
A step-sibling (stepbrother or stepsister), is a sibling to whom you bear no blood relation, but one of whose parents has remarried to one of yours; see stepfamily.
While many half-siblings are step-siblings and vice versa, someone may have either relationship without the other: step-siblings each have a parent married to a parent of the other but not necessarily a parent in common, and half-siblings not living in the same household are not always considered step-siblings.

 How Losing A Sibling Really Affects You
The other common answers were specific people like the sibling’s spouse, the driver of the car who caused the accident, the doctors who couldn't save the sibling, etc. who were a part of their sibling’s life and/or cause of death.
Younger surviving siblings have a lot of problems feeling like they need to step into their siblings footsteps, follow with what their sibling was doing at the time of their death.
Twenty-nine of the siblings surveyed believe that they have received signs and a few others say that they either haven’t but believe one day they might or that they have an experience where they’re not sure if it was their sibling.

 Sibling Sexual Abuse
Typically sibling or cousin sexual contact is defined as "abuse" when it is marked by a five year difference; when the children are less than five years apart in age, the interaction is not deemed abusive unless force, coercion, injury, or penetration occurs.
Incidence of sibling or cousin sexual abuse varies greatly among studies, ranging from 10% to 40% among those reporting sexual abuse, although sibling and cousin sexual abuse are about equal in such samples (De Jong, 1988).
Rather, sibling sexual abuse is the result of fragmenting and dysfunctional family processes, and not a cause of the family dysfunction.

 Understanding Sibling Incest   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
Even though sibling offenders may be viewed as having suffered from abuse themselves prior to their abusing, the sibling abuse they inflict may stem from their own unmet needs more than from the fact of having been abused themselves.
Sibling incest is a complex issue that calls for an awareness that the dynamics of one case may not transfer to another similar case.
Although sibling incest offenders may be known to have suffered from abuse themselves prior to their abusing, the sibling abuse they inflict may, in part at least, stem from their own unmet needs as much as or more than from the fact of having been abused themselves.

Siblings of a child with a disabling condition express a range of emotions and responses to that sibling, similar in most ways to the range of emotions experienced toward siblings who have no disability (Powell and Ogle, 1985).
Siblings who are not disabled might be interested in seeing and/or participating in some of the unique activities in which their brothers or sisters with disabilities participate while in school.
Nondisabled siblings should know where to access the needed educational, vocational, and medical records of the disabled sibling, and be ready to anticipate his or her changing future needs.

 SIBLING RIVALRY > Pt. 3
Parents should carefully observe their children, and continually explain to the older siblings the necessity that the parents have of their help with the care of the younger ones.
However, sibling rivalry may also have transcendental social consequences, whose pernicious and persistent negative effects have permeated human history and continue to manifest themselves in the present.
And, if someone has no sense of moral wrongness in the abuse of power towards members of his or her own family, it can be expected that that is how they will feel towards the rest of the people in their social environment.

 Sibling Rivalry: The Truth About the Family Favorite with Vera Rabie-Azoory
But Alfred Adler, at the same time, tried to put forth a theory of personality development based on sibling rivalry, but he was debunked by a rigorous and I should say vicious Freud who dominated the scene for the past century.
However, in speaking repeatedly with adult single children, I've often heard they were perfectly happy with their lives and many said they never desired siblings and they were pleased to be by themselves with their parents and to have all the attention focused on themselves.
You have to ultimately recognize that the siblings in conflict have the desire to be better than the other child who they see as more favored.

 UF STUDY: SIBLING VIOLENCE LEADS TO BATTERING IN COLLEGE DATING   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
In fact, the study found that sibling violence is a predictor of dating violence and is compounded by the experience of growing up in families where parent-to-child violence or parent-to-parent violence exists, said Virginia Noland, a UF professor of health science education.
Siblings learn violence as a form of manipulation and control as they compete with each other for family resources, Noland said.
The study also found that siblings closer in age experienced greater levels of violence than those spaced farther apart, probably because they spend more time together at home and school and are more likely to travel in the same social circles, Noland said.

 Big Sibling Program @ MIT
The Big Sibling Program is new to MIT as of 2002-3, thanks to a collaboration between Adoptive Families at MIT (AFMIT), the Hosts to the International Students Program (HISP), and the Graduate Student Council.
Ideally the Big Sibling will serve as a point of contact with the child's cultural heritage, will help the child in learning to navigate cultural issues that may arise in his or her life, and will be a resource in building a healthy identity.
Big sibling relationships provide not only a cultural connection for an adopted child, but also an opportunity for the adoptee's family to learn more about the adoptee's culture of origin and to become more racially aware.

 Adult Sibling Relationships: Symposium
Differences in the nature of sibling relationships associated with each phase of adult life (late adolescence, early adulthood, middle adulthood, and late adulthood) and the impact of relative birth order (oldest with youngest, oldest with middle, middle with middle, and middle with youngest) were also assessed.
The sibling relationship has been described as the most enduring of all familial relationships, with several researchers commenting on the uniqueness of the sibling bond due to the shared genetic and social backgrounds of the siblings and the longevity of their relationship.
The four groups were combinations of the oldest and a middle sibling, two middle siblings, a middle and the youngest sibling, and the oldest and the youngest sibling.

 Children with Disabilities: Understanding Sibling Issues
Additionally, several different viewpoints about sibling relationships are presented from a sibling with a disability; two nondisabled, adult siblings who have a sister with a disability; and a parent of several children, the youngest with a disability.
Siblings of a child with a disabling condition express a range of emotions and responses to that sibling, similar in most ways to the range of emotions experienced toward siblings who have no disability (Powell & Ogle, 1985).
It is essential to avoid seeing the person with a disability as "the dependent." The sibling with a disability should be empowered through early training and attitudes to act as independently as possible, and to make his or her own choices; as with all of us, some choices will be mistakes.

Joanna Fanos, Ph.D. Director, is a senior research psychologist who for 20 years has studied the impact on siblings of growing up with a brother or sister with a medical condition.

But this can be prevented: research shows that siblings do better when they understand what is happening and they receive support from their parents and health care professionals.

 Parenting, Pregnancy,Conception, Babynames - Parenthood.com
Research indicates that it is a good idea to monitor your children's sibling rivalries, but during middle childhood, direct intervention into their arguments can sometimes have the opposite effect of what you want.
This intervention has the effect of escalating the battle as the stronger sibling feels resentful and the weaker sibling feels like they can fight back more because the parent is "on their side".
Often times sibling relationships "heat up" when these kinds of changes are taking place, but most siblings cool down again once things settle down.
