Lin, Xunyi; Li, Hui – International Journal of Behavioral Development, 2019
Parental beliefs about play and learning are part of the "belief-context" of early childhood development and can thus make a key difference for the child. Previous studies have focused on cross-cultural comparisons, and therefore have neglected intra-cultural variations. This study sampled 163 Chinese mothers with children aged two to…

Though it is well-established that self-esteem develops from childhood well into old age, little is known about the processes that influence this change, especially among young populations. This international, cross-sequential study examined the development of self-esteem in 1599 second-graders (Age M[subscript T1] = 7.99, SD[subscript T1] = 0.52…

Messinger, Daniel S.; Prince, Emily B.; Zheng, Minzhang; Martin, Katherine; Mitsven, Samantha G.; Huang, Shengda; Stölzel, Tanja; Johnson, Neil; Rudolph, Udo; Perry, Lynn K.; Laursen, Brett; Song, Chaoming – International Journal of Behavioral Development, 2019
Human observations can only capture a portion of ongoing classroom social activity, and are not ideal for understanding how children's interactions are spatially structured. Here we demonstrate how social interaction can be investigated by modeling automated continuous measurements of children's location and movement using a commercial system…
