Based on equity theory, the present study analyzes to what extent justice evaluations mediate the effects of perceived parental differential treatment (PDT) on relationship quality with siblings and parents as experienced in middle adulthood. Middle-aged adult offspring (N = 709) rated how often they and a sibling received parental recognition, nurturance, and demands for assuming filial responsibility. In addition, they indicated their justice evaluations of PDT and completed measures of relationship quality to sibling and parents. Justice evaluations emerged as either partial or complete mediators between PDT and relationship quality. Moreover, justice evaluations turned out to be more powerful predictors of relationship quality to parents than PDT per se. Implications are discussed concerning factors contributing to justice evaluations and the role of PDT within the context of other justice issues in families. [less ▲]

Guided by predictions from equity theory and the self-esteem maintenance model, links between perceptions of current parental differential treatment and the perceiver's experienced relationship quality with sibling and parents were analyzed in a sample of 1,020 adult (middle-aged) offspring. Participants rated how often they and a sibling receive parental recognition, nurture, and demands for filial responsibility. In addition, they indicated their emotions and behaviors toward sibling and parents. Data analyses showed that an individual's experienced relationship with sibling was best when both were treated equally and diminished with increasing favoritism or disfavoritism. Experienced relationship with parents was best when participants were favored a bit; the relationship worsened when participants were disfavored and worsened only slightly when they were extremely favored. Results are discussed regarding mediating processes and implications for practical applications. [less ▲]

Analyzed the structure and extent of recalled differential parental treatment in a sample of 1,208 subjects (Ss) aged 40-54 yrs. In addition, equity-theoretical predictions concerning potential consequences for relationship quality to siblings and parents were tested. Ss had to rate with respect to themselves as well as a selected sibling how often they had received various forms of maternal and paternal treatment when growing up. Factor analyses of difference scores (own minus sibling) revealed 2 dimensions of both maternal and paternal treatment, which grouped differential parental behavior with respect to differential support and differential strictness. Results of hierarchic cluster analyses showed that a group of "equally treated" (80.4% of the sample), "disadvantaged" (13.2%), and "favored" Ss (6.4%) could be identified with respect to paternal differential treatment; a group of "equally treated" (87%) and a group of "disadvantaged" Ss (13%) emerged with respect to maternal treatment. Analyses of variance revealed that "disadvantaged" children reported less current attachment/closeness to parents and siblings as well as less willingness to support parents and siblings than "equally treated" and "favored" children.

The present paper reviews the empirical literature on the structure and consequences of differential parental treatment of siblings. Starting from a conceptual clarification of differential parental treatment (DPT) and parental favoritism (PF) methods for assessing these constructs are described. Then, empirical findings concerning the consequences of DPT or PF for the individual siblings, the sibling relationship, and parent child relations are summarised. The following desiderata of research are outlined: (1) Analysis of structure and consequences of DPT in adulthood, (2) conceptualisation and measurement of DPT that differentiates between domains, actors and temporal reference as well as amount and direction, and (3) investigation of mediating processes between DPT and its various effects that is guided by theories of social comparison, justice, and emotion.
