As a result, a large number of family have had or will have two children. The distinct differences between families with one child and families with two children are the arrival of the new family member relationship—sibling relationship. The literature the forms, causes and consequences of sibling relationships has been accumulating. The forms included sibling warmth, sibling conflicts and sibling relationships combined warmth with conflicts. The factors that influenced sibling relationships included sibling factors themselves(e.g., structural characteristics, temperament) and parents factors(parent-child relations, differential treatment, and marital relationship). Sibling relationships might influence children's development through the mechanism of attachment, social learning, and social comparison. In addition, an integrative model of sibling relationships is developed.
