It is their actions, reactions and functioning in response to everyday environments and situations. The term behaviour include Cognitive activity (mental skill (knowledge)), Affective activity (growth in feeling or emotional areas (attitude)), psychomotor activity (manual or physical skill (skills). Design: Comparative descriptive research design, Participinats: Total 100 sample (50- single child and 50 – child with siblings) were selected using non probability convenient sampling technique. Tool: Likert scale Results: Reveals that in single child mean was 50.92 and sibling child mean was 100.86. The single child standard deviation was 27.61 and the sibling child standard deviation was 28.19. The standard error was 5.58 and the obtained t-value was 0.103 which are significant at 0.005 levels. So the researcher concluded that there was a significant difference in behavior pattern between single child and child with sibling. Knowledge level on behaviour pattern was classified as good, average, and poor. In sibling child, 27(54%) had good behavioral pattern, 21(42%) had average behavioral pattern, 02(4%) had poor behavioral pattern.
