Effortful Control in Early Childhood: Continuity and Change, Antecedents, and Implications for Social Development.
Kochanska, Grazyna; Murray, Kathleen T.; Harlan, Elena T.
Developmental Psychology, v36 n2 p220-32 Mar 2000
Examined young children's social development of effortful control in a longitudinal study. Found that between 22 and 33 months, effortful control improved considerably, its coherence increased, it was stable, and it was higher for girls. Found that children's focused attention at 9 months, mothers' responsiveness at 22 months, and mothers' self-reported socialization level predicted children's greater effortful control. (Author/KB)
