Shin, Huiyoung; Ryan, Allison M.; North, Elizabeth – Merrill-Palmer Quarterly: Journal of Developmental Psychology, 2019
This study examined the friendship processes around prosocial and aggressive behaviors and the moderating role of early adolescents' perceived relatedness with teachers. Differences between fifth graders in elementary school and sixth graders in middle school were examined. The sample was from 48 classrooms (N = 879, 51% girls at Wave 1, N = 859,…

Wilson, Travis M.; Jamison, Rhonda – Merrill-Palmer Quarterly: Journal of Developmental Psychology, 2019
Peer nominations and teacher ratings were used to examine age and sex differences in behaviors associated with perceived coolness during middle childhood. 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.,…

Moore, Christina C.; Hubbard, Julie; Morrow, Michael T.; Barhight, Lydia R.; Lines, Meghan M.; Sallee, Meghann; Hyde, Christopher T. – Merrill-Palmer Quarterly: Journal of Developmental Psychology, 2019
The goal of the present study was to test the hypothesis that, when children respond to peer provocation assertively, their physiology at that moment will be marked by high levels of respiratory sinus arrhythmia (RSA). Participants were 35 European American (66%), African American (27%), Latino American (3%), and mixed race/ethnicity (3%) children…

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…

Archbell, Kristen A.; Coplan, Robert J.; Nocita, Gabriella; Rose-Krasnor, Linda – Merrill-Palmer Quarterly: Journal of Developmental Psychology, 2019
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…

Breslend, Nicole Lafko; Shoulberg, Erin K.; Wagner, Caitlin; Murray-Close, Dianna; Holterman, Leigh Ann – Merrill-Palmer Quarterly: Journal of Developmental Psychology, 2018
The purpose of the current investigation was to examine if autonomic nervous system reactivity moderated the association between relational victimization and two established outcomes of peer maltreatment, anxious/depressive symptoms and anxious rejection sensitivity. A total of 119 female (M[subscript age] = 12.47, SD[subscript age] = 1.96)…

Beißert, Hanna M.; Mulvey, Kelly L.; Killen, Melanie – Merrill-Palmer Quarterly: Journal of Developmental Psychology, 2018
This study investigated patterns of reasoning regarding different types of moral transgressions and different measures of moral development in children 6-8 years of age (N = 130). The findings documented different patterns of reasoning for each measure and for transgressions including different moral principles. Children distinguished between…

Holfeld, Brett; Leadbeater, Bonnie J. – Merrill-Palmer Quarterly: Journal of Developmental Psychology, 2018
Although the effect of physical and relational (i.e., traditional) victimization on psychopathology is established, the interdependent contribution of cybervictimization is unclear. We test a longitudinal path model theorizing that (a) children's physical and relational victimization in Grade 4 or 5 is associated with more cybervictimization…

Field, Ryan D.; Martin, Carol Lynn; Andrews, Naomi C. Z.; England, Dawn E.; Zosuls, Kristina M. – Merrill-Palmer Quarterly: Journal of Developmental Psychology, 2017
The goal was to assess the role of children's social cognitions about peers in attitudes toward school. Because of gender segregation, we differentiated children's cognitions about same-gender and other-gender peers. We examined the influence of gender-based relationship efficacy for both own-gender and other-gender peers (GBRE-Own and GBRE-Other)…

Rohlf, Helena; Busching, Robert; Krahé, Barbara – Merrill-Palmer Quarterly: Journal of Developmental Psychology, 2017
This study examined the prospective links between maladaptive anger regulation and aggressive behavior in middle childhood over a 10-month period, analyzing the mediating influence of peer problems. Participants were 599 elementary school children in Germany, aged 6-10 years at Time 1 (T1) and 7-11 years at Time 2 (T2). Anger regulation at T1 was…

Barhight, Lydia R.; Hubbard, Julie A.; Swift, Lauren E.; Konold, Timothy R. – Merrill-Palmer Quarterly: Journal of Developmental Psychology, 2017
Data were collected about 95 fourth-grade and fifth-grade children from three sources (teachers, parents, and children) on four constructs related to aggression (proactive aggression, reactive aggression, callous-unemotional traits, and anger dysregulation) by using a multitrait-multimethod design. Two goals were addressed through a…

Gazelle, Heidi; Shell, Madelynn D. – Merrill-Palmer Quarterly: Journal of Developmental Psychology, 2017
Consistent with a holistic perspective emphasizing the integration of multiple individual characteristics within child systems, it was hypothesized that subgroups of anxious solitary (AS) children differentiated by agreeable, normal, attention-seeking, and externalizing behaviors would demonstrate enduring heterogeneity in peer relations over the…

Zhang, Linlin; Eggum-Wilkens, Natalie D.; Eisenberg, Nancy; Spinrad, Tracy L. – Merrill-Palmer Quarterly: Journal of Developmental Psychology, 2017
In this two-wave longitudinal study, concurrent and longitudinal relations among teacher-reported shyness, peer acceptance, and academic achievement were examined (Ns = 162 and 155; and Ms[subscript age] = 6.09 and 7.07 years). Concurrently, at both times, shyness was negatively related to peer acceptance and academic achievement, and peer…

Zarbatany, Lynne; Tremblay, Paul F.; Ellis, Wendy E.; Chen, Xinyin; Kinal, Megan; Boyko, Lisa – Merrill-Palmer Quarterly: Journal of Developmental Psychology, 2017
This study examined aspects of peer clique participation that mitigated victimization by peers over a school year. Participants were 1,033 children age 8-14 years (M[subscript age] = 11.81; 444 boys and 589 girls), including 128 (66 boys) victimized children. Cliques (N = 162) and clique participation were assessed by using the Social Cognitive…
