In brief: Nurture neglected

Defiant children have a big impact on both parents and siblings alike.
Constant stress of confrontation puts everyone on edge. Having had one like this we learned that there were battles not worth fighting and some that were. Give special attention to any other children as it is easy to be overshadowed by one demanding all the attention.
