The purpose of this study was to determine the perceptions of the quality of family relationships between children with sickle cell disease and their non-diseased siblings. In this study, 28 subjects were interviewed in their homes. The quality of family relations was assessed utilizing the Family Environment Scale (Moos & Moos, 1981). There was no significant difference in cohesion, expressiveness, conflict, or organization. Control was higher for boys than girls. Implications for family nursing practice are presented.
