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…

Orri, Massimiliano; Girard, Lisa-Christine; Pingault, Jean-Baptiste; Rouquette, Alexandra; Herba, Catherine; Falissard, Bruno; Côté, Sylvana M.; Berthoz, Sylvie – International Journal of Behavioral Development, 2019
Children's early emotional environment strongly influences their later behavioural development. Yet, besides maternal depression, limited knowledge exists about the effect of other emotions and the role of fathers. Using 290 triads (mother/father/child), we investigated how positive (SEEKING, CARING, PLAYFULNESS) and negative (FEAR, ANGER,…

Card, Noel A. – International Journal of Behavioral Development, 2019
Longitudinal data are common and essential to understanding human development. This paper introduces an approach to synthesizing longitudinal research findings called lag as moderator meta-analysis (LAMMA). This approach capitalizes on between-study variability in time lags studied in order to identify the impact of lag on estimates of stability…

Lennarz, Hannah K.; Hollenstein, Tom; Lichtwarck-Aschoff, Anna; Kuntsche, Emmanuel; Granic, Isabela – International Journal of Behavioral Development, 2019
Successful emotion regulation (ER) is a central aspect of psychosocial functioning and mental health and is thought to improve and be refined in adolescence. Past research on ER has mainly focused on one-time measurements of habitual ER. Linking regulatory strategies to emotions in daily lives is key to understanding adolescents' emotional lives.…

Zeytinoglu, Selin; Calkins, Susan D.; Leerkes, Esther M. – International Journal of Behavioral Development, 2019
Cognitive flexibility is a sophisticated form of executive functions that predicts a range of adaptive outcomes; however, little is known about which caregiving behaviors predict the rapid improvements in children's cognitive flexibility during early childhood. This study examined whether ordinary variations in mothers' provision of emotional and…

Richmond, Ashley D.; Laursen, Brett; Stattin, Håkan – International Journal of Behavioral Development, 2019
This study examined age-related changes in friend similarity on delinquency to determine whether deviant behavior homophily peaks during mid-adolescence. A community sample of 1,663 male and 1,826 female Swedish youth from Grade 5 (M = 11.21 years) to Grade 10 (M = 16.25 years) provided self-reports of delinquency. Friendships were identified from…

Jubran, Rachel; White, Hannah; Chroust, Alyson; Heck, Alison; Bhatt, Ramesh S. – International Journal of Behavioral Development, 2019
Hands convey important social information, such as an individual's emotions, goals, and desires, are used to direct attention through pointing, and are a major organ for haptic perception. However, very little is known about infants' representation of human hands. In Experiment 1, infants tested in a familiarization/novelty preference task…

Doan, Stacey N.; Lee, Helen Y.; Wang, Qi – International Journal of Behavioral Development, 2019
We investigated the role of mothers' references to mental states and behaviors and children's emotion situation knowledge (ESK) in a prospective, cross-cultural context. European American mothers (n = 71) and Chinese immigrant mothers (n = 60) and their children participated in the study. Maternal references to mental states and behaviors were…

This study examined longitudinal links between household income and parents' education and children's trajectories of internalizing and externalizing behaviors from age 8 to 10 reported by mothers, fathers, and children. Longitudinal data from 1,190 families in 11 cultural groups in eight countries (Colombia, Italy, Jordan, Kenya, Philippines,…

Knopp, Katarzyna A. – International Journal of Behavioral Development, 2019
The abilities comprising social intelligence are critical to children's development and interpersonal functioning, and there is a need for reliable and valid tools for measuring them. This paper describes the Children's Social Comprehension Scale (CSCS), which is a performance-based test of the cognitive component of social intelligence for young…

Eisner, Nora L.; Murray, Aja L.; Eisner, Manuel; Ribeaud, Denis – International Journal of Behavioral Development, 2019
Selective non-participation and attrition pose a ubiquitous threat to the validity of inferences drawn from observational longitudinal studies. We investigate various potential predictors for non-response and attrition of parents as well as young persons at different stages of a multi-informant study. Various phases of renewed consent from parents…

Grütter, Jeanine; Tropp, Linda R. – International Journal of Behavioral Development, 2019
We examined how two different definitions of cross-ethnic friendships, namely reciprocal peer nominations for shared activities and mutual trust, predict attitudes towards immigrant students among non-immigrant Swiss children and early adolescents (N = 309). Among both Swiss children and early adolescents, only the number of mutually trusting peer…

De France, Kalee; Lennarz, Hannah; Kindt, Karlijn; Hollenstein, Tom – International Journal of Behavioral Development, 2019
Consistently, moderate to strong correlations between emotion regulation and depressive symptomology are well documented. This relationship is most often conceptualized as unidirectional, in that poor emotion regulation acts as a pre-existing risk factor for depressive symptomatology. However, explicit examinations of the direction of this…

Ren, Lixin; Fan, Jieqiong – International Journal of Behavioral Development, 2019
Popular parenting literature has often emphasized the importance of establishing predictable routines during early childhood. Using a sample of 688 Chinese preschool-aged children, the current study examined how child routines were related to parent-child relationships and self-regulation. This study first examined the psychometric properties of…

Lago, Oliva; Rodríguez, Purificación; Escudero, Ana; Dopico, Cristina; Enesco, Ileana – International Journal of Behavioral Development, 2019
The current study investigated whether children's conformity to a majority testimony influenced their willingness to revise their own erroneous counting knowledge. The content of the testimonies focused on conventional rules of counting, by means of pseudoerrors (i.e., unconventional counts) occurring during a detection task. In this work…
