The Effect of Contemporaries: Siblings and Peers

  • Rachel Seginer
Part of the The Springer Series on Human Exceptionality book series (SSHE)

This chapter builds on two observations of wide agreement: that the majority of contemporary children grow up with siblings and that, as children enter school, time spent with peers gradually increases and so does their influence. Obviously then in wishing to understand the effect of the social environment on adolescents’ future orientation siblings and peers must be included and their influence relative to each other and to parents must be tested.
