Description:Shows children of the same age in two cultures responding differently to their mother attending to another baby, to the ear-piercing of a younger sibling, and to the experimental presentation of a doll. Where the Balinese mother handles sibling rivalry by theatrical teasing of her own child and conspicuous attention to other babies, the Iatmul mother, even when nursing a new born infant, makes every effort to keep her own child from feeling jealous.
