Description Sibling rivalry is a routine part of growing up in families, but when that fighting turns into constant arguments, fights, and the creation of some potentially dangerous situations, it should be dealt with. This study was conducted to assess the knowledge and attitude among mothers of under-five children regarding management of sibling rivalry and also to findout the association between knowledge level and attitude level with selected socio-demographic variables. A descriptive study was carried out among 100 mothers at a selected urban area of Bangalore. Participants were selected through convenience sampling technique. Data was collected through structured self administered questionnaire on socio demographic variables and sibling rivalry. The result showed that 76% of mothers had moderately adequate knowledge and 67% of mothers had moderate level of attitude. There was a statistical significant association between the knowledge and socio-demographic variables such as age of mothers and type of family. There was a positive correlation between the level of knowledge and attitude among mothers of under-five children regarding management of sibling rivalry. When sibling rivalry gets out of hand, the effects can be disastrous. It is important that parents learn how to keep sibling rivalry to a minimum, and how to combat the negative effects of sibling rivalry.
