Bullying in schools and online has received a lot of attention over the last few years, with educators, safety advocates and media focusing on the issue. But a lesser-known problem, aggression among siblings, is gaining attention. We talk with the author of a recent study on the effects of sibling aggression that goes beyond rivalries and squabbles, as well as psychologists about the implications of this research.
