Most research on siblings examines predetermined topics, rather than starting from children's own perspectives. This report based on a study involving 58 children aged seven to 13 explores children’s views on their relationships and everyday life with their brothers and sister. As part of the J. R. F Understanding Children’s Lives series this report contributes further insights into children’s relationships and addresses important gaps in our understanding of children’s lives.
