Sibling relationships, which play such a critical role in a child’s overall development, take on special significance when one of the siblings has a disability (Gallagher, Powell & Rhodes, 2006). Often, as children develop, they may choose behaviors they experienced at home, while others emulate the socialization in which they were so familiar. Regardless of how the socialization plays out, it is an influential factor in the way adults live. The relationship a child develops with his or her parents can serve as a model for subsequent relationship with siblings. Whiteman, Becerra, & Killoren (2009), found research to support that a theory of sibling influences: sibling social learning is directly linked to how siblings develop similar and different attributes, attitudes, and behaviors.

Adolescent Social Development The social development of adolescents is very much affected by the social world. Peer relationships, family relationships, school, work, and community play a critical role in an adolescent’s social development as well as culture. Adolescence begins around the age of eleven and lasts into the early twenties. As a child enters into adolescence, many changes are taking place, including physical changes in appearance, sexual maturity, hormonal changes, and the ability to reflect on one’s identity of self (Broderick & Blewitt, 2010). As adolescents begin to experience these changes; they also experiment with new behaviors to help them transition from childhood to adulthood.
Parent- child relationship influences the personality, emotional development and the behavioral habits of children. It is important for the overall development of children that parents must be there to support them and this support fosters confidence and growth on many areas. The changes in the family system like divorce, parent’s remarriage or death of parent etc. affects the child and his mental
According to Judith Blake, author of Family Size and Achievement, family dynamics and parental attention plays a bigger role in a child then the birth order may. Depending on the amount of time each child receives from a parent, it can affect how each child develops (“Your Place in the Family”). Birth order traits can also come from sibling interactions, not just parent-child interactions. Sibling interactions help shape the way each child will act because they are learned strategies designed to help each child cope with what they need based on how their siblings treat them (Isaacson 157). Another factor that can affect birth order is age gaps.
The specification of a person is determined in adolescence. The outside factors of someone’s life influence how they develop as a person and they direct one’s lifestyle and actions. Such as, parents, experiences, abilities and disabilities, age, and gender. Parents play an incredibly important role in identity development for children. Especially when young people are emerging into the unknown world of adulthood.
Strong communication skills must start from parents in order for the children to grasp that skill. Relationships within families vary depending on whom you’re talking to and what exactly you might be talking about. Communication climate within families relies on culture, social economic status, and environment; these three factors play a big part in how families communicate with each other. Identity is built on multiple different things, but the base of it comes from culture. Culture is molded into children at a very young age from their parents; it is what shapes and forms individual’s beliefs, which leads to build their character.
How much and how strong of an influence does a parent have on their child or children. Although children are influenced from the outside world as well, ultimately a child’s values, morals, spiritual awareness and ethics can strongly come from the parents and what they saw in their home while growing up. While planned parenting can be an essential means in physiologically and financially preparing the

By showing an interest toward the adolescences confusion and emotion can aid in developing a healthy sense of self for both the adoptee and the care giver. Since adolescents can vary on how interested they are with their adoption; past or present. Some are willing to connect with their biological families while others do not.
Family Role in Career Development Family influence is an important force in preparing youth for their roles as workers. Young people form many of their attitudes about work and careers as a result of interactions with the family.
