Wainryb, Cecilia; Pasupathi, Monisha; Bourne, Stacia; Oldroyd, Kris – Developmental Psychology, 2018
The study's goals were twofold: (a) to examine the effectiveness of narrating an angry experience, compared with relying on distraction or mere reexposure to the experience, for anger reduction across childhood and adolescence, and (b) to identify the features of narratives that are associated with more and less anger reduction for younger and…

Bjørklund, Oda; Belsky, Jay; Wichstrøm, Lars; Steinsbekk, Silje – Developmental Psychology, 2018
Children's eating behavior influences energy intake and thus weight through choices of type and amount of food. One type of eating behavior, food responsiveness, defined as eating in response to external cues such as the sight and smell of food, is particularly related to increased caloric intake and weight. Because little is known about the…

Atherton, Olivia E.; Ferrer, Emilio; Robins, Richard W. – Developmental Psychology, 2018
Youth who exhibit externalizing problems during childhood and adolescence are at an increased risk for a wide range of detrimental life outcomes. Despite the profound consequences of externalizing problems for children, their families, and their communities, we know less about the precise trajectory of externalizing symptoms across late childhood…

Hoff, Erika; Burridge, Andrea; Ribot, Krystal M.; Giguere, David – Developmental Psychology, 2018
The robust relation between maternal education and child language that is observed in monolingual populations has not been reliably replicated among bilingual children from immigrant families in the United States. We hypothesized that a variable that operates in immigrant populations--the language in which mothers achieved their highest level of…

Broadbent, H. J.; Osborne, T.; Rea, M.; Peng, A.; Mareschal, D.; Kirkham, N. Z. – Developmental Psychology, 2018
Multisensory information has been shown to facilitate learning (Bahrick & Lickliter, 2000; Broadbent, White, Mareschal, & Kirkham, 2017; Jordan & Baker, 2011; Shams & Seitz, 2008). However, although research has examined the modulating effect of unisensory and multisensory distractors on multisensory processing, the extent to which…

Imuta, Kana; Scarf, Damian; Carson, Sally; Hayne, Harlene – Developmental Psychology, 2018
Children often learn information in a context that is vastly different to the one in which they are asked to recall or use that information. Despite this, little is known about the effect of context change on children's recall of educational information. Here, 197 5- and 6-year-olds were taught the same interactive lesson in their classroom or on…

Wade, Mark; Madigan, Sheri; Plamondon, Andre; Rodrigues, Michelle; Browne, Dillon; Jenkins, Jennifer M. – Developmental Psychology, 2018
Previous studies have demonstrated that various psychosocial risks are associated with poor cognitive functioning in children, and these risks frequently cluster together. In the current longitudinal study, we tested a model in which it was hypothesized that cumulative psychosocial adversity of mothers would have deleterious effects on children's…

Bernard, Kristin; Kuzava, Sierra; Simons, Robert; Dozier, Mary – Developmental Psychology, 2018
Maltreating mothers often struggle to respond sensitively to their children's distress. Examining psychophysiological processing of own child cues may offer insight into neurobiological mechanisms that promote sensitive parenting among high-risk mothers. The current study used event-related potential (ERP) methodology to examine associations…

Browne, Dillon T.; Wade, Mark; Plamondon, Andre; Leckie, George; Perlman, Michal; Madigan, Sheri; Jenkins, Jennifer M. – Developmental Psychology, 2018
The present study examined the effects of socioeconomic status (SES) and sibling differences in birth weight on sibling differences in the receipt of maternal sensitivity (i.e., differential parenting). It was hypothesized that sibling differences in birth weight would predict "absolute" differential parenting across the sibship (i.e.,…

Davies, Patrick T.; Coe, Jesse L.; Hentges, Rochelle F.; Sturge-Apple, Melissa L.; Ripple, Michael T. – Developmental Psychology, 2018
This study examined children's attention biases to negative emotional stimuli as mediators of associations between interparental hostility and children's externalizing symptoms. Participants included 243 children (M[subscript age] = 4.60 years) and their parents and teachers across three annual measurement occasions. Cross-lagged latent change…

Flack, Zoe M.; Field, Andy P.; Horst, Jessica S. – Developmental Psychology, 2018
Although an abundant literature documents preliterate children's word learning success from shared storybook reading, a full synthesis of the factors which moderate these word learning effects has been largely neglected. This meta-analysis included 38 studies with 2,455 children, reflecting 110 effect sizes, investigating how reading styles, story…

Pachankis, John E.; Sullivan, Timothy J.; Feinstein, Brian A.; Newcomb, Michael E. – Developmental Psychology, 2018
This study investigated longitudinal trajectories of stigma (i.e., enacted, anticipated, internalized, concealed); stress-sensitive mental health disorder symptoms (i.e., depression, social anxiety); and their associations across 8 annual assessments in a sample of 128 young gay and bisexual U.S. university students. All forms of stigma…

Mulvey, Kelly Lynn; Boswell, Corey; Niehaus, Kate – Developmental Psychology, 2018
To investigate children's inclusion of language-outgroup members, English-speaking children (8-9 years and 10-11 years of age, N = 57) made inclusion decisions while playing a simulated ball-tossing game, Cyberball, and while evaluating hypothetical scenarios involving language-outgroup members who wanted to play with their group. In the Cyberball…

Liu, Xiuying; Liu, Tongran; Shangguan, Fangfang; Sørensen, Thomas Alrik; Liu, Qian; Shi, Jiannong – Developmental Psychology, 2018
Conflict adaptation is key in how children self-regulate and assert cognitive control in a given situation compared with a previous experience. In the current study, we analyzed event-related potentials (ERPs) to identify age-related differences in conflict adaptation. Participants of different ages (5-year-old children, 10-year-old children, and…

Ip, Martin Ho Kwan; Imuta, Kana; Slaughter, Virginia – Developmental Psychology, 2018
Correct counting respects the stable order principle whereby the count terms are recited in a fixed order every time. The 4 experiments reported here tested whether precounting infants recognize and prefer correct stable-ordered counting. The authors introduced a novel preference paradigm in which infants could freely press two buttons to activate…
