Lougheed, Jessica P.; Benson, Lizbeth; Cole, Pamela M.; Ram, Nilam – Developmental Psychology, 2019
The timing of events (e.g., how long it takes a child to exhibit a particular behavior) is often of interest in developmental science. Multilevel survival analysis (MSA) is useful for examining behavioral timing in observational studies (i.e., video recordings) of children's behavior. We illustrate how MSA can be used to answer 2 types of research…

Potter, Christine E.; Lew-Williams, Casey – Developmental Psychology, 2019
Learning always happens from input that contains multiple structures and multiple sources of variability. Though infants possess learning mechanisms to locate structure in the world, lab-based experiments have rarely probed how infants contend with input that contains many different structures and cues. Two experiments explored infants' use of two…

Zemp, Martina; Johnson, Matthew D.; Bodenmann, Guy – Developmental Psychology, 2019
Parental conflict is a well-established predictor of child maladjustment. Most research, however, has not considered how the couple's positivity-negativity interaction ratio (i.e., the ability to compensate for negative behaviors with positive) may be linked with child adjustment. We examined interparental positivity-negativity interaction ratios…

Compassion is known to predict prosocial behavior and moral judgments related to harm. Despite the centrality of compassion to social life, factors predicting adulthood compassion are largely unknown. We examined whether qualities of parent-child-relationship, namely, emotional warmth and acceptance, predict offspring compassion decades later in…

Kachel, Ulrike; Tomasello, Michael – Developmental Psychology, 2019
The problem with collaboration is that there are temptations to defect. Explicit joint commitments are designed to mitigate some of the risks, but people also feel committed to others implicitly when they both know together that they each hold the other's fate in their hands. In the current study, pairs of 3-year-old and 5-year-old children (N =…

Diesendruck, Gil; Chiang, Wen-Chi; Ferera, Matar; Benozio, Avi – Developmental Psychology, 2019
Adults value scarce objects, such as rare precious stones and limited edition items. This valuation may derive from an understanding of market forces and sociological considerations, but it may also be related to more basic cognitive and motivational processes. The present studies addressed these possibilities by investigating the development and…

Fujisawa, Keiko K.; Todo, Naoya; Ando, Juko – Developmental Psychology, 2019
Identifying the cognitive capacities associated with the development of school readiness is indispensable to support children's successful school transition. It has been shown that executive function (EF) in preschoolers is associated with both concurrent preacademic and subsequent academic skills. However, most research has controlled for the…

Riggs, Anne E. – Developmental Psychology, 2019
To acquire social conventional knowledge, children must distinguish between behaviors that are practiced by groups of people versus those that are practiced by individuals. How do children infer the scope (i.e., level of generality) of social behavior? Prior work has addressed this question by focusing on the cues or instruction that adults…

Halpin, Peter F.; Wolf, Sharon; Yoshikawa, Hirokazu; Rojas, Natalia; Kabay, Sarah; Pisani, Lauren; Dowd, Amy Jo – Developmental Psychology, 2019
Relatively little research has addressed whether conceptual frameworks of early learning generalize across different national contexts. This article reports on a cross-country measurement invariance analysis of the International Development and Early Learning Assessment (IDELA). The IDELA is a direct assessment tool for 3- to 6-year-old children,…
