Thus, it is important to identify individual differences that shape the consequences of peer stress. This research investigated the interactive contribution of cumulative peer stress during childhood (second-fifth grades) and executive…

Carr, Imogen; Szabó, Marianna – Journal of Early Adolescence, 2015

This study examined the effects of pubertal status, pubertal timing (actual and perceived), and youth biological sex on symptom dimensions of anxiety (i.e., social, separation, harm avoidance, physical) in African Americans (n = 252; ages 8-12). For girls, results indicated that pubertal status and timing (actual) exerted similar effects for some…

Ahn, Hai-Jeong; Garandeau, Claire F.; Rodkin, Philip C. – Journal of Early Adolescence, 2010
This study investigated the independent and interacting effects of classroom-level embeddedness (i.e., hierarchical vs. egalitarian) and classroom density on the perceived popularity and social preference of aggressive and victimized 3rd-4th grade students (N = 881). A cohesive blocking procedure was used to compute embeddedness. Multilevel…

De Civita, Mirella; Pagani, Linda S.; Vitaro, Frank; Tremblay, Richard E. – Journal of Early Adolescence, 2007
We examined the influence of income source within the context of persistent poverty on children's disruptive classroom behavior at age 12 and whether these associations were mediated by maternal supervision at ages 10 and 11. Using a subsample (N = 1,112) from the Quebec Longitudinal Study, we coded four economic circumstances indicating…

Simpkins, Sandra D.; Parke, Ross D.; Flyr, Mary L.; Wild, Margaret N. – Journal of Early Adolescence, 2006
Similarities between adolescents are often the cornerstone of a friendship; yet researchers know little about the similarities in friends' perceptions of the relationship. In the current study, the authors examine similarities in friends' perceived friendship qualities during the transition into early adolescence (n = 77 third graders, 110 fourth…

Zimmer-Gembeck, Melanie J.; Geiger, Tasha C.; Crick, Nicki R. – Journal of Early Adolescence, 2005
In this 3-year prospective study (N = 458) spanning a transition to middle school, bidirectional associations between children's relations with schoolmates (social preference and impact) and behaviors (physical and relational aggression, prosocial behavior) were examined using structural equation modeling. Gender moderation of all estimated paths…
