Sibling bullying should not be overlooked, according to researchers.

A lot of children deal with bullying among their peers, but being picked on by a brother or sister could be a source of depression and anxiety, as well.

Researchers surveyed 3,600 kids across the United States and found that those who were pushed around by a sibling had higher scores of depression and anxiety symptoms.

The team of researchers believe the findings show that parents shouldn’t turn a blind eye to sibling bullying.
