This study examined sibling relationships of children from violent and nonviolent families. Social support was used as a theoretical framework for the study. Participants included 20 children (10 dyads) who were shelter residents and their mothers and 40 children (20 dyads) from the community and their mothers. Mothers reported on children's behaviour problems, sibling conflict resolution strategies, and the quality of the sibling relationship. Children reported on the quality of their sibling relationships. Sibling interactions were observed during both cooperative and competitive tasks. Shelter children had more internalizing problems than comparison chldren. Mothers reported that siblings from violent homes used less verbal and physical aggression than the comparison group. Siblings in the shelter group were supportive; however, they were more conflictual in a competitive task. The importance of the sibling relationship for child witnesses of family violence, and implications for nursing care are discussed.
