Munoz, Lorraine; Raffaelli, Marcela – Applied Developmental Science, 2022
The current study explored how parents and their adolescent children describe parents' involvement in the adolescent's organized youth program. As part of a larger study of youth programs, 36 adolescent-parent dyads participated in semi-structured interviews. Youth (63.9% female) were 13-18 years old (M = 15.9, SD = 1.2) and ethnically diverse…

Richards, Melissa N.; Putnick, Diane L.; Bradley, Laura P.; Lang, Kyle M.; Little, Todd D.; Suwalsky, Joan T. D.; Bornstein, Marc H. – Applied Developmental Science, 2022
Play during childhood is essential to growth and learning. Little is known about whether categories of toys moderate play behaviors at different ages, or how children interact with toys that are simple, appropriate, or complex for their developmental level. Two hundred and forty-three children between the ages of 1 and 8 years, divided into four…

Thouin, Éliane; Dupéré, Véronique; Dion, Eric; McCabe, Julie; Denault, Anne-Sophie; Archambault, Isabelle; Brière, Frédéric N.; Leventhal, Tama; Crosnoe, Robert – Applied Developmental Science, 2022
Encouraging involvement in school-based extracurricular activities (ECA) may be important for preventing high school dropout. However, the potential of these activities remains underexploited, perhaps because studies linking ECA involvement and dropout are rare and based on decades-old data. Previous studies also ignore key parameters of student…

Taylor, Zoe E.; Ruiz, Yumary; Nair, Nayantara; Mishra, Aura A. – Applied Developmental Science, 2022
Our mixed-method study examined the mental health of Latinx children in migrant farmworker (LMFW) families, assessed whether acculturative stressors contributed to mental health problems, and examined whether family warmth and support counteracted the negative effects of acculturative stressors on mental health. Participants were children aged…

Wang, Tong; You, Xu Qun; Huang, Xi Ting – Applied Developmental Science, 2022
Life-purpose orientations can highly influence people's life paths and well-being. However, existing psychological measurements tend to dismiss the need for assessing the individual's life purpose orientations, especially in non-Western cultures. This study sought to develop a new measure to assess purpose orientations specific to the Chinese…

Akiva, Thomas; White, Annie M.; Colvin, Sharon; DeMand, Alex; Page, Lindsay C. – Applied Developmental Science, 2022
Research across multiple fields finds that adult-youth relationships are key influencers of development; however, professional learning about relational practice is limited. This suggests the need for targeted, efficient ways to help adults improve relational practice. We present a randomized controlled trial of Simple Interactions, a…

Liu, Yangyang; Simpkins, Sandra D.; Vandell, Deborah Lowe – Applied Developmental Science, 2022
According to bioecological theory, children's experiences in one developmental setting are meaningful for their adjustment in other settings. In the current study, the quality of children's relationships with classroom teachers, afterschool program staff, and mothers in 1st grade (n = 137) were examined in relation to their academic,…

Monjaras-Gaytan, Lidia Y.; Sánchez, Bernadette; Smith Carter, Jocelyn – Applied Developmental Science, 2022
Mentoring is one avenue to support Latinx adolescents in their positive development. The current study examined the roles of stressors and interpersonal trust toward adults in the formation and quality (instrumental and relational) of natural mentoring relationships. Participants were 347 Latinx adolescents who were surveyed in the 9th and 10th…

Heshmati, Saeideh; Oravecz, Zita; Brick, Timothy R.; Roeser, Robert W. – Applied Developmental Science, 2022
The transitional years of early adulthood, with key tasks of identity and intimacy development, engender both opportunities and risks for well-being. We propose that the conceptualization and measurement of early adults' well-being can be improved through (a) an integration of ideas from developmental and psychological science on well-being, (b)…

Yu, Mark Vincent B.; Liu, Yangyang; Hsieh, Ta-yang; Lee, Glona; Simpkins, Sandra D.; Pantano, Alessandra – Applied Developmental Science, 2022
Opportunities for collaborative learning reflect positive peer processes that have strong implications for adolescents' developmental experiences in afterschool programs (ASPs). However, collaborative learning, which involves considering multiple viewpoints and coordinating actions with peers to accomplish a shared goal, is often difficult for…

Oosterhoff, Benjamin; Hill, Ryan M.; Slonaker, Natalie J. – Applied Developmental Science, 2022
Civic engagement is thought to enhance personal well-being, yet little research has examined links between civic engagement, burdensomeness, and belongingness during periods of heightened civic action. Late adolescent college students (N = 235, M[subscript age]=19.43) completed daily assessments of civic engagement (community service,…

Tavassolie, Tanya; Bleiker, Charles; Manfra, Louis; Hartman, Suzanne C.; Dinehart, Laura H. B.; Winsler, Adam – Applied Developmental Science, 2022
A person-centered approach was used to explore how preschool school readiness profiles predict Grade 3 academic performance among a large (N = 43,044) low-income, ethnically-diverse longitudinal sample of children. Study aims: (a) determine the number and type of preschoolers' school readiness profiles, (b) determine how profile membership relates…

Ansari, Arya; Winsler, Adam – Applied Developmental Science, 2022
This study used covariate adjusted regression techniques to compare the third-grade outcomes of low-income Latinx children who attended Montessori pre-K programs (n = 161) with those who graduated from more conventional programs (n = 4975) in Miami-Dade County, Florida. Children who experienced one year of Montessori education demonstrated…
