Children's Naive Theories of Intelligence Influence Their Metacognitive Judgments.
Recent studies have shown that the metacognitive judgments adults infer from their experiences of encoding effort vary in accordance with their naive theories of intelligence. To determine whether this finding extends to elementary schoolchildren, a study was conducted in which 27 third graders (Mag...
Little evidence that time in child care causes externalizing problems during early childhood in norway.
Associations between maternal reports of hours in child care and children's externalizing problems at 18 and 36 months of age were examined in a population-based Norwegian sample (n = 75,271). Within a sociopolitical context of homogenously high-quality child care, there was little evidence that hig...
Longitudinal relations of intrusive parenting and effortful control to ego-resiliency during early childhood.
Longitudinal relations among ego-resiliency (ER), effortful control (EC), and observed intrusive parenting were examined at 18, 30, and 42 months of age (Ns = 256, 230, and 210) using structural equation modeling. Intrusive parenting at 18 and 30 months negatively predicted EC a year later, over and...
Peer network overlap in twin, sibling, and friend dyads.
Research suggests that sibling-peer connections are important for understanding adolescent problem behaviors. Using a novel behavioral genetic design, the current study investigated peer network overlap in 300 child-child pairs (aged 7-13 years) in 5 dyad types: monozygotic (MZ), dizygotic twins, fu...
The relation of moral emotion attributions to prosocial and antisocial behavior: a meta-analysis.
This meta-analytic review of 42 studies covering 8,009 participants (ages 4-20) examines the relation of moral emotion attributions to prosocial and antisocial behavior. A significant association is found between moral emotion attributions and prosocial and antisocial behaviors (d = .26, 95% CI [.15...
Family meals and child academic and behavioral outcomes.
These results were robust to various specifications of the FMF variables and did not differ by child age. © 2012 The Authors. Child Development © 2012 Society for Research in Child Development, Inc....
12-month-olds' phonotactic knowledge guides their word-object mappings.
These results demonstrate that by 12 months of age, infants are beginning to apply their language-specific knowledge to their acceptance of word forms. That is, they will not map words that violate the phonotactics of their native language to objects. © 2012 The Authors. Child Development © 2012 Soc...
Fine motor skills and executive function both contribute to kindergarten achievement.
This study examined the contribution of executive function (EF) and multiple aspects of fine motor skills to achievement on 6 standardized assessments in a sample of middle-socioeconomic status kindergarteners. Three- and 4-year-olds' (n=213) fine and gross motor skills were assessed in a home visit...
The effects of auditory information on 4-month-old infants' perception of trajectory continuity.
These results are discussed relative to the intersensory redundancy hypothesis and emphasize the need to take an intersensory approach to infant perception. © 2012 The Authors. Child Development © 2012 Society for Research in Child Development, Inc....
Longitudinal antecedents of executive function in preschoolers.
Despite an extensive history underscoring the role of social processes and child contributions to the development of executive functions (C. Lewis & J. Carpendale, 2009; L. S. Vygotsky, 1987), research on these relations is sparse. To address this gap, 68 mother-child dyads were examined to determin...
