Van Heel, Martijn; Van Den Noortgate, Wim; Bijttebier, Patricia; Colpin, Hilde; Goossens, Luc; Verschueren, Karine; Van Leeuwen, Karla – Developmental Psychology, 2019
Previous studies often assumed that parenting practices are similar across families.

Dys, Sebastian P.; Peplak, Joanna; Colasante, Tyler; Malti, Tina – Developmental Psychology, 2019
Economically disadvantaged children often lack the resources to purchase popular goods and participate in their preferred social groups' activities, making it difficult to fit in. Meanwhile, children from middle socioeconomic status (SES) families may have additional influence over whether low SES children are included in such groups. We examined…

Johnson, Anna D.; Finch, Jenna E.; Phillips, Deborah A. – Developmental Psychology, 2019
Publicly funded center-based preschool programs were designed to enhance low-income children's early cognitive and social-emotional skills in preparation for kindergarten. In the U.S., the federal Head Start program and state-funded public school-based pre-kindergarten (pre-k) programs are the two primary center-based settings in which low-income…

Noles, Nicholaus S. – Developmental Psychology, 2019
This study explores how feature salience and feature centrality influence inductive generalization in 4- and 5-year-old children and adults. Recent reports indicate that enhancing the salience of a feature--specifically, a creature's head--by making it move shifts children's inductions so that they ignore labels and make inferences that are…

Karasewich, Tara A.; Kuhlmeier, Valerie A.; Beier, Jonathan S.; Dunfield, Kristen A. – Developmental Psychology, 2019
When young children recruit others to help a person in need, media reports often treat it as a remarkable event. Yet it is unclear how commonly children perform this type of pro-social behavior and what forms of social understanding, cognitive abilities, and motivational factors promote or discourage it. In this study, 48 three- to four-year-old…

Urban middle school students (N = 1,057; M[subscript age] = 12.06) viewed Facebook-like profiles of peers who varied by race/ethnicity, gender, and sexual orientation and indicated the social class (SC) of those peers along two dimensions--family income and social class position. As hypothesized, most profiles were perceived as middle class and…

Seider, Scott; Clark, Shelby; Graves, Daren; Kelly, Lauren Leigh; Soutter, Madora; El-Amin, Aaliyah; Jennett, Pauline – Developmental Psychology, 2019
Interpersonal and structural forms of racism contribute to a system of economic stratification in the United States in which children of color are disproportionately likely to be born into poverty and to remain poor as adults. However, only a small body of research has focused on Black and Latinx adolescents' developing beliefs about the causes of…

Godfrey, Erin B.; Burson, Esther L.; Yanisch, Tess M.; Hughes, Diane; Way, Niobe – Developmental Psychology, 2019
An increasing body of research on critical consciousness explores how youth understand and react to inequality in their social contexts. The operationalization of critical consciousness remains inchoate, however. Developmental psychology traditionally conceptualizes critical consciousness as three components (critical reflection, political…

The larger the economic inequality in access to opportunities children…

Hershberg, Rachel M.; Johnson, Sara K. – Developmental Psychology, 2019
An intersectional approach to human development emphasizes the multiple social categories individuals occupy, some of which confer privilege (e.g., being White) and some of which confer marginalization (e.g., being poor). This approach is needed especially in critical consciousness scholarship, and particularly in regard to understanding whether…
