We sought to examine whether (a) media internalization…

This study examined the effects of first-grade teachers' emotional support on task persistence and academic skills in the sixth grade and the mediational role of children's academic self-concept in these effects. Participants were 524 children (263 boys, X-bar age in the first grade = 7.47 years), their first-grade homeroom teachers (n = 53), and…

Giardiello, Mauro – Journal of Early Adolescence, 2017
The crisis of public spaces implies a closure to the private sphere and, as a consequence, the inanity of the education processes. Space privatization involves the supremacy of the "?????" (house) on the "a???a" (public space), so that the house assumes the role of an enclosed community. The effect of this closure is a…

The study was based on three measurement occasions over 2 years and included 248…

Tatlow-Golden, Mimi; Guerin, Suzanne – Journal of Early Adolescence, 2017
Self-concept research in early adolescence typically measures young people's self-perceptions of competence in specific, adult-defined domains. However, studies have rarely explored young people's own views of valued self-concept factors and their meanings. For two major self domains, the active and the social self, this mixed-methods study…

Zsakai, Annamaria; Karkus, Zsolt; Utczas, Katinka; Bodzsar, Eva B. – Journal of Early Adolescence, 2017
In adolescence, the complexity of human ontogenesis embraces biological growth and maturation as well as mental, affective, and cognitive progress, and adaptation to the requirements of society. To accept our morphological constellation as part of our gender may prove a problem even to a child of average rate of maturation. The main purposes of…

Musso, Pasquale; Inguglia, Cristiano; Lo Coco, Alida – Journal of Early Adolescence, 2017
Framed from an integrative approach, the current article examined the associations between ethnic identity exploration (EIE), ethnic identity commitment (EIC), and acculturative stress by investigating the mediating role of ethnic attitudes (i.e., in-group favoritism and out-group derogation) in these relationships. Additionally, the moderating…

Bengtsson, Hans; Söderström, Micael; Terjestam, Yvonne – Journal of Early Adolescence, 2016
Compassion may be directed at a broad range of targets.

Dispositional…

Symonds, Jennifer; Hargreaves, Linda – Journal of Early Adolescence, 2016
Adolescents typically like school less after making age-graded school transitions. Stage-environment fit theory (Eccles & Midgley, 1989) attributes this to a mismatch between developmental needs and new school environments. Our in vivo study provides a basis for future quantitative designs by uncovering the most prevalent stage-environment…

McKenney, Sarah J.; Bigler, Rebecca S. – Journal of Early Adolescence, 2016
Sexually objectifying messages about girls and women are common in U.S. popular culture. As a consequence of exposure to such messages, girls may develop "internalized sexualization," or internalization of the belief that sexual attractiveness to males is an important aspect of their identity. We hypothesized that internalized…
