Families Perspectives on Daily Sibling Interactions

There are many ups and downs in sibling relationships, especially at the day-to-day level. We are interested in learning about family members’ perceptions and experiences of daily interactions between siblings and how they are linked with the psychological functioning and relationships in the family.

We are looking for families with children between 7 and 11 years old, who are fluent in English, reside in Canada or the US, and have lived together for at least one year. Parents will complete a questionnaire online and then we will call the family for 9 evenings to complete a quick survey about the children’s and parent’s day.

Participants can receive up to $35 (e transfer or Amazon gift card) in appreciation for their time.
