"Judy Dunn, a leading international authority on childhood development, provides an account of children's early friendships. Drawing on evidence from studies on both sides of the Atlantic, it considers the nature and significance of such relationships for children's development and well-being. The book concludes by drawing out the practical implications of research for parents, teachers and those who care for children, including how to manage friendships at different developmental stages, how to help children with friendship difficulties, and what to do about 'trouble-making' friendships and bullying."--Jacket

A study of children's understanding of the feelings and behavior of others in their family world
Siblings : love, envy & understanding by Judy Dunn( )

17 editions published in 1982 in 3 languages and held by 810 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The birth of a younger sibling can be a traumatic event for the older child. Unquestionably it places increased demands on parents and causes important changes in the inner balance of the family. Childrearing manuals are full of advice about how to get through this difficult time. But until now such advice has been based more on clinical guesswork than on direct observation of what really happens to families when a sibling is born. With the arrival of Siblings, this gap in our knowledge is admirably filled. Judy Dunn and Carol Kendrick studied forty families for a period of approximately one year starting shortly before the birth of a second child. Some families, they found, weather the storm much better than others, and their book examines the full catalog of factors that can make the difference. There are, for instance, parenting styles that ease the impact on the older child, improve relations between siblings, and generally make life easier for the entire family. But there are also differences among children in such characteristics as sex, age, and temperament, all of which have a major influence totally beyond parental control. Despite the undeniable stress involved, Dunn and Kendrick demonstrate that the advent of a sibling can be a stimulus for real cognitive and emotional growth on the part of the older child. No longer "the baby," the child must try to deal with a newcomer whose attempts to communicate are necessarily rudimentary. Siblings shows how the elder child's efforts to understand the baby can form the basis for a loving bond of extraordinary durability. A sensitive and informative book, Siblings takes psychology into an area of family life and child development that has long received too little attention

Children's sibling relationships : developmental and clinical issues by Frits Boer( Book )

15 editions published between 1992 and 2014 in English and held by 481 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines the relationship between siblings as one characterized by distinctive emotion and intimacy from infancy onwards, noting that such relationships offer children unique opportunities for learning about self and others and have considerable potential for affecting children's well-being, intimately linked as it is to the relationship each child has with the shared parents. The first part of the book, which consists of the first five chapters, focuses on developmental issues, while the second part, which consists of the last five chapters, deals with clinical concerns considered in the context of their research findings and their practical implications for those in a clinical role. The chapters of the book are as follows: (1) "Sisters and Brothers: Current Issues in Developmental Research" (Judy Dunn); (2) "The Developmental Courses of Sibling and Peer Relationships" (Duane Buhrmester); (3) "Siblings and Their Parents" (Frits Boer and others); (4) "Sibling Caretaking: Providing Emotional Support during Middle Childhood" (Brenda K. Bryant); (5) "Social Norms and the One-Child Family: Clinical and Policy Implications" (Toni Falbo); (6) "Children's Experiences with Disabled and Nondisabled Siblings: Links with Personal Adjustment and Relationship Evaluations" (Susan M. McHale and Vicki S. Harris); (7) "The Brothers and Sisters of Mentally Retarded Children" (Ann Gath); (8) "Siblings as Co-Patients and Co-Therapists in Eating Disorders" (Walter Vandereycken and Ellie Van Vreckem); (9) "Sibling Relationships in Disharmonious Homes: Potential Difficulties and Protective Effects" (Jennifer Jenkins); and (10) "Remembering and Reinterpreting Sibling Bonds" (Stephen Bank). Each chapter includes references. (Tjq)

Succeed? * How do stepfamilies function as child rearing environments? * How do stepfamilies function as sources of support in later life? * Building research and
