Liang, Yuan; Zhang, Lijin; Wang, Chunling; Liu, Yujuan – Infant and Child Development, 2021
This study investigated the influence of spontaneous focusing on numerosity (SFON) tendency on the performance and estimation patterns on number line estimation (NLE). To examine this question, 147 preschoolers (3.51-4.52 years) completed two types of SFON task (referenced SFON task and non-referenced SFON task) and three conditions of NLE…

Ren, Lixin; Fan, Jieqiong – Infant and Child Development, 2021
Ratings from multiple informants, such as parents and teachers, are often used in child development research. Although informant discrepancies have been the rule rather than the exception, factors that may contribute to such discrepancies are not well understood. This study examined the role of parent-teacher relationships in the discrepancies…

Zgourou, Eleni; Bratsch-Hines, Mary; Vernon-Feagans, Lynne – Infant and Child Development, 2021
Using a sample of 1,117 families living in low-wealth rural areas, the current study focused on how home literacy practices for 3-year-old children were related to the children's language skills at ages 3 and 4. Three types of home literacy practices were explored: parent-to-child literacy practices, child literacy practices, and parent literacy…

Hill, Tatiana; Palacios, Natalia – Infant and Child Development, 2021
When identifying parental socialization processes influencing children's reading achievement, building self-regulation is a potential underlying mechanism. Yet socialization (i.e., warmth, stress) of self-regulation may vary based on the sociocultural context of ethnic minority families. Using the ECLS-K: 2011 (N = 17,020; M[subscript Age] = 73.43…

Liu, Ningyu; Zhao, Jing; Huang, Chen; Xing, Xiaopei; Lu, Shan; Wang, Zhengyan – Infant and Child Development, 2021
Fluent reading, which involves visual serial processing of letters/characters (i.e., visual temporal processing, VTP), greatly contributes to our daily life. The present study thus explored the underlying mechanism of reading fluency from the perspective of VTP. A longitudinal method was adopted to examine whether VTP skills in preschool (mean age…

Tsuji, Hiromi – Infant and Child Development, 2020
The development of a mind-reading ability, known as theory-of-mind (ToM), has been recognized as following a universal process, but the age at which the false-belief task is passed has been reported to have wide inter-group variabilities. Japanese children have been reported to acquire a false-belief understanding at a slightly older age than…

Ruggiero, Adrianna; Parolin, Emily; Ma, Lili – Infant and Child Development, 2020
This research explored children's attitudes towards gossipers in relation to gossip valence. Four- to 8-year-old children (N = 214) read three storybooks containing positive, neutral, or negative gossip statements. Following each book, children were interviewed on whom they viewed as nicer and more honest (ascription of desirable traits), whom…

Fink, Elian; Mareva, Silvana; Gibson, Jenny L. – Infant and Child Development, 2020
Most research on children's play takes a context-dependent, adult-focused observational approach to the measurement of play. The current two studies present the development and psychometric properties of the Child Self-Report Playfulness (CSRP) scale, which was presented via "puppet-show" to two samples of children. Study 1, across 98…

Weisberg, Deena Skolnick; Hopkins, Emily J. – Infant and Child Development, 2020
How do young children decide which events can happen within fictional stories (extension) and learn new information from these stories (export)? In two studies, we investigate these two issues as well as the influence of story genre (realistic or fantastical) on these processes. Preschoolers (N = 192) heard either a realistic or fantastical story…

Xiao, Nan; Che, Yishu; Zhang, Xiao; Song, Zhanmei; Zhang, Yuanyuan; Yin, Shaoqing – Infant and Child Development, 2020
This study examined the relationship between the frequency of mother-child and father-child literacy teaching activities and the reading skills of Chinese preschool children. A total of 105 Hong Kong Chinese preschoolers and their fathers and mothers were involved. Fathers and mothers independently reported the frequency of their own literacy…

Shuwairi, Sarah M.; Tran, Annie; Belardo, John; Murphy, Gregory L. – Infant and Child Development, 2020
Prior work showed that infants look longer at impossible figures than possible ones, although it is unclear whether they or older children understand "impossibility." We employed a series of matching and sorting tasks with pictures and objects to evaluate children's knowledge of this dimension. In Experiment 1, nearly all children…

Broadbent, Hannah; Osborne, Tamsin; Kirkham, Natasha; Mareschal, Denis – Infant and Child Development, 2020
Benefits of synchronous presentation of multisensory compared to unisensory cues are well established. However, the generality of such findings to children's learning with visual and haptic sensory cue pairings is unclear. Children aged 6 to 10 years (N = 180) participated in a novel tabletop category-learning paradigm with visual, haptic, or…

Lecce, Serena; Bianco, Federica; Ronchi, Luca – Infant and Child Development, 2020
Theoretical accounts and experimental data on young children have shown that executive functions (EFs) are predicted by experiential factors. However, studies on school-aged children are rare. The present study has addressed this gap using a short-term cross-lagged longitudinal design focusing on the relationship between working memory (WM),…

St. John, Ashley M.; Tarullo, Amanda R. – Infant and Child Development, 2020
Although broad associations between socioeconomic status (SES) and child executive functions (EFs) are well established, contextual factors that may matter for effects of SES on EF are not fully understood. This study used a bioecological approach to examine factors that may moderate SES-EF relations. A socioeconomically diverse sample of children…

Korucu, Irem; Litkowski, Ellen; Purpura, David J.; Schmitt, Sara A. – Infant and Child Development, 2020
The family context has been identified as an important predictor of the development of children's executive function (EF). An emerging line of research demonstrates that parents' own EF is linked to their caregiving behaviours and their children's EF. However, researchers have yet to explore the extent to which parental EF is related to specific…
