The Interplay of Maternal Sensitivity and Toddler Engagement of Mother in Predicting Self-Regulation
Ispa, Jean M.; Su-Russell, Chang; Palermo, Francisco; Carlo, Gustavo
Developmental Psychology, v53 n3 p425-435 Mar 2017
Using data from the Early Head Start Research and Evaluation Project, a cross-lag mediation model was tested to examine longitudinal relations among low-income mothers' sensitivity; toddlers' engagement of their mothers; and toddler's self-regulation at ages 1, 2, and 3 years (N = 2,958). Age 1 maternal sensitivity predicted self-regulation at ages 2 and 3 years, and age 2 engagement of mother mediated the relation between age 1 maternal sensitivity and age 3 self-regulation. Lagged relations from toddler self-regulation at ages 1 and 2 years to later maternal sensitivity were not significant, suggesting stronger influence from mother to toddler than vice versa. Model fit was similar regardless of child gender and depth of family poverty.
