Suarez-Rivera, Catalina; Smith, Linda B.; Yu, Chen – Developmental Psychology, 2019
Parents support and scaffold more mature behaviors in their infants. Recent research suggests that parent-infant joint visual attention may scaffold the development of sustained attention by extending the duration of an infant's attention to an object. The open question concerns the parent behaviors that occur within joint-attention episodes and…

Rapp, Diotima J.; Engelmann, Jan M.; Herrmann, Esther; Tomasello, Michael – Developmental Psychology, 2019
Reputational concerns are known to promote cooperation. Individuals regularly act more prosocially when their behavior is observable by others. Here, we investigate 4- and 5-year-old (N = 144) children's reputational strategies in a competitive group setting. The aim of the current study was to explore whether children's sharing behavior is…

Vilà-Giménez, Ingrid; Igualada, Alfonso; Prieto, Pilar – Developmental Psychology, 2019
Iconic and pointing gestures are important precursors of children's early language and cognitive development. While beat gestures seem to have positive effects on the recall of information by preschoolers, little is known about the potential beneficial effects of observing beat gestures on the development of children's narrative performance. We…

Rizzo, Michael T.; Li, Leon; Burkholder, Amanda R.; Killen, Melanie – Developmental Psychology, 2019
In a hidden inequality context, resource allocators and resource recipients are unaware that an unknowingly advantaged recipient possesses resources. The present study presented children aged 3-13 years (N = 121) with a hidden inequality vignette involving an accidental transgression in which one resource claimant, who unknowingly possessed more…

Loucks, Jeff; Price, Heather L. – Developmental Psychology, 2019
Executing actions in a specific order is a critical component of many action sequences that children must acquire, the majority of which are learned through observation and imitation of others. Although a wealth of evidence indicates that children can process and represent temporal order in memory, relatively little is known about the development…

Suveg, Cynthia; Braunstein West, Kara; Davis, Molly; Caughy, Margaret; Smith, Emilie Phillips; Oshri, Assaf – Developmental Psychology, 2019
Physiological synchrony, or concordance, among caregiver-child dyads involves the matching of biological states. Understanding this process is critical for enhancing our knowledge of the ways that the caregiver-child relationship supports child development. However, the meaning of physiological synchrony for child adjustment is poorly understood.…

Petters, Dean David – Developmental Psychology, 2019
From his first attempts to explain attachment phenomena in the 1940s through his "Attachment and Loss" trilogy (Bowlby, 1969/1982, 1973, 1980), John Bowlby reformulated the theoretical underpinnings of attachment theory several times. He initially attempted to explain attachment phenomena in psychoanalytic terms. Then he invoked…

Ahl, Richard E.; Duong, Shirley; Dunham, Yarrow – Developmental Psychology, 2019
Previous research has found that even young children accurately assign wealth labels (e.g., rich or poor) to real-world wealth symbols, such as pictures of houses. However, it is unclear whether children spontaneously consider individuals' wealth status when predicting how they will behave toward others. In Study 1, children (n = 100, ages 4-5 and…

Maciejewski, Dominique F.; Keijsers, Loes; van Lier, Pol A. C.; Branje, Susan J. T.; Meeus, Wim H. J.; Koot, Hans M. – Developmental Psychology, 2019
One particular developmental task during adolescence is to regulate fluctuating moods to successfully transition through this period. The aim of this person-centered study was to identify distinct developmental trajectories of adolescent mood variability and to compare adolescents in different trajectories on changes in depressive symptoms,…

This study examined 131 U.S. middle class early, middle, and late adolescents' (M[subscript age] = 12.74, 15.81, and 20.40 years, respectively) narratives regarding experiences of disclosure, concealment, and lying to parents and responses to direct probes about lessons learned about self and parents. The thematic content focused primarily on…

Forbes, Samuel H.; Plunkett, Kim – Developmental Psychology, 2019
Previous research has highlighted the difficulty that infants have in learning to use color words. Even after acquiring the words themselves, infants are reported to use them incorrectly, or overextend their usage. We tested 146 infants from 5 different age groups on their knowledge of 6 basic color words, "red", "green",…
