Danneel, Sofie; Colpin, Hilde; Goossens, Luc; Engels, Maaike; Van Leeuwan, Karla; Van Den Noorgate, Wim; Verschueren, Karine – Merrill-Palmer Quarterly: Journal of Developmental Psychology, 2019
In this study, the effects of peer acceptance and rejection on global self-esteem and emotional school engagement in adolescents were investigated. Moreover, in line with the differential susceptibility hypothesis, we examined the potential moderating effect of a polymorphism in the serotonin receptor gene (i.e., 5-HTTLPR). The sample consisted of…

Mouratidis, Athanasios; Sayil, Melike; Kumru, Asiye; Selcuk, Bilge; Soenens, Bart – Merrill-Palmer Quarterly: Journal of Developmental Psychology, 2019
Past research has shown that, while psychological control increases the risk for adolescents' antisocial behavior, maternal knowledge of adolescents' activities decreases this risk. Yet, research is somewhat inconclusive about the role of psychologically controlling parenting in parental knowledge. Also, the role of both predictors in prosocial…

Miller, Natalie V.; Johnston, Charlotte – Merrill-Palmer Quarterly: Journal of Developmental Psychology, 2019
We investigated how parents' attributions of blame/responsibility/internal locus for negative events happening to themselves and to their children were related to children's attributions about similar events in their own lives. In a sample of 145 families (including mother, father, and child aged 9-12 years; 73 boys), we tested for unique…

Pratt, Megan E.; Swanson, Jodi; van Huisstede, Lauren; Gaias, Larissa M. – Merrill-Palmer Quarterly: Journal of Developmental Psychology, 2019
Multiple, simultaneous stressors in the family context during early childhood may compromise healthy adjustment to school, with potential long-term implications. Moreover, stressors across multiple contexts (e.g., home and school) can exacerbate the negative influences of stress on children's functioning. We investigated associations between…

Martins, Carla; Barreto, Ana L.; Baptista, Joana; Osório, Ana; Martins, Eva C.; Verissimo, Manuela – Merrill-Palmer Quarterly: Journal of Developmental Psychology, 2019
This study investigated the prospective relationship between preschoolers' theory of mind (ToM) skills and academic school readiness, while exploring the possible moderator role played by child gender. The participants were 75 children who were assessed at two time points: when enrolled in the second preschool year (T1) and again 4 months before…

Frazier, Andrew L.; Cooley, John L.; Fite, Paula J.; Poqiuiz, Jon – Merrill-Palmer Quarterly: Journal of Developmental Psychology, 2018
Studies examining the link between psychological control and peer victimization are limited. The current study extends knowledge of the role of parental psychological control in predicting children's experiences of peer victimization by longitudinally evaluating the moderating role of emotion inhibition. Gender differences in this effect were also…

Miller, Stephanie E.; Reavis, Rachael E.; Avila, Brittany N. – Merrill-Palmer Quarterly: Journal of Developmental Psychology, 2018
Despite our wealth of knowledge regarding theory of mind (ToM) development in preschool, less is known about development and the processes that support ToM into middle childhood. The current study examined potential cognitive (i.e., executive function, verbal intelligence, and nonverbal intelligence) and social (i.e., socioeconomic status,…

Bélanger, Marie-Ève; Desrosiers, Kim; Bernier, Annie – Merrill-Palmer Quarterly: Journal of Developmental Psychology, 2018
This study examined the reciprocal associations between sleep (duration and quality) and aggressive behavior in toddlers. The sample consisted of 82 children (43 boys and 39 girls) and their parents who completed two assessments, when children were 2 and 3 years old. At both time points, children wore an actigraph for 3 consecutive days to assess…

Nida, Robert E. – Merrill-Palmer Quarterly: Journal of Developmental Psychology, 2018
The purpose of the present investigation was to examine the eyewitness memory performance of 3- and 5-year-old African American children (N = 33) from lowincome households. The children were asked to remember the routine details of a physical examination immediately after the physical exam and again after a delay interval of 6 weeks. Age-related…

Hutchison, Sarah M.; Müller, Ulrich – Merrill-Palmer Quarterly: Journal of Developmental Psychology, 2018
"Weight-related attitudes" refer to negative attitudes toward individuals because they are overweight or obese. These attitudes are widespread among children and adults and have been proven to be recalcitrant to intervention. To develop more effective interventions, it is necessary to understand the origin and development of explicit and…

Galián, María D.; Ato, Ester; Fernández-Vilar, María Angeles – Merrill-Palmer Quarterly: Journal of Developmental Psychology, 2018
The aim of this study was to analyze the relationship between effortful control and language performance, and the mediation effect of sociometric status on this relationship. The sample comprised 472 Spanish children 6-8 years old. To measure temperament, the parents were given the Temperament in Middle Childhood Questionnaire (TMCQ). The…

Vaillancourt, Tracy; Brittain, Heather; Haltigan, John D.; Ostrov, Jamie M.; Muir, Cameron – Merrill-Palmer Quarterly: Journal of Developmental Psychology, 2018
We examined whether the moderating role of cortisol in the relation between physical peer victimization and physical aggression was better accounted for by a diathesis-stress model or a differential susceptibility model using a multi-informant approach (direct observations, teacher reports, and parent reports) of 198 preschool-aged children…

Breslend, Nicole Lafko; Shoulberg, Erin K.; Wagner, Caitlin; Murray-Close, Dianna; Holterman, Leigh Ann – Merrill-Palmer Quarterly: Journal of Developmental Psychology, 2018
The purpose of the current investigation was to examine if autonomic nervous system reactivity moderated the association between relational victimization and two established outcomes of peer maltreatment, anxious/depressive symptoms and anxious rejection sensitivity. A total of 119 female (M[subscript age] = 12.47, SD[subscript age] = 1.96)…

McIver, Theresa A.; Bosma, Rachael L.; Sandre, Aislinn; Goegan, Sarah; Klassen, Janell A.; Chiarella, Julian; Booij, Linda; Craig, Wendy – Merrill-Palmer Quarterly: Journal of Developmental Psychology, 2018
Peer victimization is associated with increased risk for mental health problems. These adverse psychological outcomes are linked with altered cognitive and emotional processes and their related neural functioning. In the present study, by using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), we examined whether peer victimization was associated with…

Ungvary, Stephen; McDonald, Kristina L.;; Gibson, Carolyn E.; Glenn, Andrea L.; Reijntjes, Albert – Merrill-Palmer Quarterly: Journal of Developmental Psychology, 2018
The goal of this study was to examine how individual differences in physiological arousal and reactivity moderated the relation between peer victimization and reactive and proactive aggression. Participants were 58 adolescents (61.2% boys; 54.9% African American) in the age range of 12--15. Participants self-reported peer victimization, reactive…
