Mouratidis, Athanasios; Sayil, Melike; Kumru, Asiye; Selcuk, Bilge; Soenens, Bart – Merrill-Palmer Quarterly: Journal of Developmental Psychology, 2019

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…

Acar, Ibrahim H.; Torquati, Julia C.; Garcia, Aileen; Ren, Lixin – Merrill-Palmer Quarterly: Journal of Developmental Psychology, 2018
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…

Goodlett, Benjamin D.; Trentacosta, Christopher J.; McLear, Caitlin; Crespo, Laura; Wheeler, Rebecca; Williams, Alexis; Chaudhry, Kiren; Smith-Darden, Joanne – Merrill-Palmer Quarterly: Journal of Developmental Psychology, 2017
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…

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…

Murphy, Tia Panfile; Jehl, Brianna; Hamel, Kayla; McCurdy, Kelsey; Halt, Allison – Merrill-Palmer Quarterly: Journal of Developmental Psychology, 2017
The quality of the attachment bond between a child and a caregiver can have lasting effects on how the child perceives, interprets, and recalls events through the filtering of internal working models. Previous research has shown that secure children tend to recall emotional information better than insecure children. The current study examined the…

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.…

Lambie, John A.; Lindberg, Anja – Merrill-Palmer Quarterly: Journal of Developmental Psychology, 2016
Emotional awareness--that is, accurate emotional self-report--has been linked to positive well-being and mental health. However, it is still unclear how emotional awareness is socialized in young children. This observational study examined how a particular parenting communicative style--emotional validation versus emotional invalidation--was…

Parent-child conversations about shared events may facilitate important aspects of psychosocial development through the family's references to emotions. Although past research has begun examining features of speakers and topics that predict emotion talk in these conversations, the potential contribution of personality traits has been overlooked.…
