Abstract

This article reviews the current literature concerning the role of child-mother attachment security and parent-child interaction in relation to children's responses to the arrival of a sibling. After an introduction to the area, 9 articles are reviewed in detail in terms of the following criteria: rationale for the research design and procedure main findings and relevance to the wider literature. The majority of the studies reviewed found significant increases in behavioural problems in target children in response to the birth of a sibling and several found changes to child-mother attachment security status and interaction over the transition. The overall findings of the review are discussed in terms of their relevance to the wider literature and suggestions for the direction of future research are given.
