Effects of sibling support on the relationship between family conflict and individual psychological adjustment was explored in a sample of university students. Those from high-conflict homes with high sibling support reported more positive adjustment than did only-children and individuals with low sibling support. Sibling support was not associated with greater adjustment in low-conflict homes, thus reinforcing its potential benefits as a buffer to stress.
