The current study examined the effects of parent-child and teacher-child relationships on behavior regulation of children at risk. In particular, the amplifying or attenuating effect of one context (i.e., teacher-child relationships) for another context (i.e., parent-child relationship) on children's behavior regulation was examined. Participants…

Maternal depressive symptoms predict negative child behaviors, including internalizing problems. However, protective factors, such as positive emotionality and positive parenting behaviors, may play an important a role in attenuating associations between maternal depressive symptoms and child behavior problems. This article presents two studies…

Ondersma, Steven J.; McGoron, Lucy; Beatty, Jessica R. – Merrill-Palmer Quarterly: Journal of Developmental Psychology, 2017
Child maltreatment is associated with increased risk of substance abuse in adulthood. However, prior investigations have not examined substance use specifically in pregnancy and have relied on self-report of substance use. The present study addresses these gaps via secondary analysis of 295 primarily low-income, Black postpartum women who agreed…

Delonis, M. Susan; Beeghly, Marjorie; Irwin, Jessica L. – Merrill-Palmer Quarterly: Journal of Developmental Psychology, 2017
Very preterm birth (<32 weeks of gestation) heightens the risk for developmental and behavioral problems, but individual outcomes vary greatly. We evaluated whether mother-toddler dyadic interaction quality, assessed longitudinally at 14, 20, and 30 months (corrected), could account for unique variance in very preterm and full-term children's…

Data were collected about 95 fourth-grade and fifth-grade children from three sources (teachers, parents, and children) on four constructs related to aggression (proactive aggression, reactive aggression, callous-unemotional traits, and anger dysregulation) by using a multitrait-multimethod design. Two goals were addressed through a…

Consistent with a holistic perspective emphasizing the integration of multiple individual characteristics within child systems, it was hypothesized that subgroups of anxious solitary (AS) children differentiated by agreeable, normal, attention-seeking, and externalizing behaviors would demonstrate enduring heterogeneity in peer relations over the…

Lapan, Candace; Boseovski, Janet J.; Blincoe, Sarai – Merrill-Palmer Quarterly: Journal of Developmental Psychology, 2016
Children base trait inferences about people on direct observations of behavior. In some situations, these inferences might conflict with information supplied by others. This study examined 3- to 6-year-olds' willingness to change their own trait attributions about an actor after receiving a consistent or inconsistent trait label from an authority…

Kiuru, Noona; Laursen, Brett; Aunola, Kaisa; Zhang, Xia; Lerkkanen, Marja-Kristiina – Merrill-Palmer Quarterly: Journal of Developmental Psychology, 2016
This longitudinal study, conducted among a sample of Finnish primary-school children, examined the proposition that a single high-quality relationship (either with a teacher or a parent) can buffer against adjustment problems. Teachers rated the externalizing problems and prosocial behaviors of 378 children in Grade 1 and again in Grade 2.…
