Abstract or Summary
  • The present study examined if having an older sibling was significantly related to stronger selfregulation and achievement, in a sample of 74 preschool children participating in a selfregulation intervention. It was hypothesized that children with an older sibling in the fall would have higher self-regulation and achievement scores than children with no older siblings, and that children with an older sibling in the intervention would improve more across the year in selfregulation and achievement than children with an older sibling in the control group. Results showed that having an older sibling significantly predicted higher vocabulary and math scores in the fall of preschool. In addition, children with an older sibling in the intervention group had significantly higher vocabulary scores than children with an older sibling in the control group in the spring. Findings indicate that older siblings have an important influence on the early development of vocabulary skills in preschool children.
