Sibling relationships tied to children's vocabulary skills
from The Globe and Mail
In large families, young kids can't always get a lot of individual attention from parents — but healthy interactions with an older sibling may help compensate for that, a new study suggests. How older children interact with their siblings is tied to the younger children's development, Canadian researchers found. Previous research had found that children from large families tend to score lower on vocabulary, IQ and other academic tests, compared to those from smaller families.
