In this study, the effects of peer acceptance and rejection on global self-esteem and emotional school engagement in adolescents were investigated. Moreover, in line with the differential susceptibility hypothesis, we examined the potential moderating effect of a polymorphism in the serotonin receptor gene (i.e., 5-HTTLPR). The sample consisted of…

Mouratidis, Athanasios; Sayil, Melike; Kumru, Asiye; Selcuk, Bilge; Soenens, Bart – Merrill-Palmer Quarterly: Journal of Developmental Psychology, 2019

Yet, research is somewhat inconclusive about the role of psychologically controlling parenting in parental knowledge. Also, the role of both predictors in prosocial…

Miller, Natalie V.; Johnston, Charlotte – Merrill-Palmer Quarterly: Journal of Developmental Psychology, 2019
We investigated how parents' attributions of blame/responsibility/internal locus for negative events happening to themselves and to their children were related to children's attributions about similar events in their own lives. In a sample of 145 families (including mother, father, and child aged 9-12 years; 73 boys), we tested for unique…

Gartstein, Maria A.; Hancock, Gregory R. – Merrill-Palmer Quarterly: Journal of Developmental Psychology, 2019
Temperament growth has been examined in infancy, but the spectrum of reactive and regulatory dimensions was not previously considered. We evaluated linear and nonlinear growth trajectories for overarching factors and fine-grained indicators of infant temperament obtained via parent report (N = 143) at 4, 6, 8, 10, and 12 months of age.…

Pratt, Megan E.; Swanson, Jodi; van Huisstede, Lauren; Gaias, Larissa M. – Merrill-Palmer Quarterly: Journal of Developmental Psychology, 2019
Multiple, simultaneous stressors in the family context during early childhood may compromise healthy adjustment to school, with potential long-term implications. Moreover, stressors across multiple contexts (e.g., home and school) can exacerbate the negative influences of stress on children's functioning. We investigated associations between…

Participants were 470 students in Grades 1, 3, and 5. Participants nominated peers whom they perceived as cool; separate scores were calculated for samesex coolness and cross-sex coolness (i.e.,…

A total of 158 (2- to 5-year-old) children earned prizes for claiming that they were looking at birds even when…

Kurtz-Costes, Beth; Hudgens, Tanée M.; Skinner, Olivenne D.; Adams, Elizabeth A.; Rowley, Stephanie J. – Merrill-Palmer Quarterly: Journal of Developmental Psychology, 2019
We investigated relations among African American parents' reports of ethnic-racial socialization received during their own childhood, their racial attitudes (i.e., perceptions of U.S. racial climate and valuing of intergroup contact), and their 12th-grade children's reports of parents' use of racial pride socialization and preparation for bias.…

Li-Grining, Christine P.; McKinnon, Rachel D.; Raver, C. Cybele – Merrill-Palmer Quarterly: Journal of Developmental Psychology, 2019
Although existing research has shed much light on the development of ethnic minority children, many studies focus on maladjustment, such as behavioral problems, without also speaking to positive experiences in children's lives, such as friendship. An aspect of development that predicts both positive and negative outcomes for children is…

n the field of emotion development, there is a shortage in different approaches to evaluate emotion processes, particularly in adolescents. The current study developed an Implicit Association Test (IAT) for adolescent emotion expression. Participants were 120 adolescents (M[subscript age] = 14.69 years, SD = 11.11 months; 75.8% White; 50% girls)…

The goals of the present study were (a) to explore different aspects of children's participation in structured performing arts activities (e.g., dance and music); and (b) to examine links between participation in performing arts and indices of socioemotional functioning. Participants were N = 166 children (75 boys and 91 girls) in Grade 1 (n = 70,…

Frazier, Andrew L.; Cooley, John L.; Fite, Paula J.; Poqiuiz, Jon – Merrill-Palmer Quarterly: Journal of Developmental Psychology, 2018
Studies examining the link between psychological control and peer victimization are limited. The current study extends knowledge of the role of parental psychological control in predicting children's experiences of peer victimization by longitudinally evaluating the moderating role of emotion inhibition. Gender differences in this effect were also…
