Edyburn, Kelly L.; Meek, Shantel – Society for Research in Child Development, 2021
In recent years, families with children from the Northern Triangle countries of Central America constitute a large and growing proportion of migrants and overall filed asylum claims.

Malti, Tina – Society for Research in Child Development, 2020
The absence of violence against children is a fundamental children's right and a major milestone of civilized society. Similarly, reports on incidences of violence "by" children and youth, including severe cases with devastating consequences, speak to the need that the trauma of exposure to violence in childhood needs to be addressed.…

Font, Sarah A.; Gershoff, Elizabeth T. – Society for Research in Child Development, 2020
Foster care provides round-the-clock substitute care for nearly 700,000 U.S. children who are temporarily or permanently separated from their family of origin each year. Each state manages its own foster care system according to federal regulations. Despite numerous large-scale federal policy reforms over the past several decades, substantial…

Blumberg, Fran C.; Deater-Deckard, Kirby; Calvert, Sandra L.; Flynn, Rachel M.; Green, C. Shawn; Arnold, David; Brooks, Patricia J. – Society for Research in Child Development, 2019
We document the need to examine digital game play and app use as a context for cognitive development, particularly during middle childhood. We highlight this developmental period as 6- through 12-year olds comprise a large swath of the preadult population that plays and uses these media forms. Surprisingly, this age range remains understudied with…

Wartella, Ellen, Ed. – Society for Research in Child Development, 2019
The effects of using interactive media have been well studied among young children and adolescents but remain understudied for middle childhood (ages 6-12 years). Children and youth of this age comprise much of the pre-adult population that uses digital games and apps. The Every Student Succeeds Act says that states must give students access to…

In recent decades, educators and policymakers in the United States have increased their focus on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) learning opportunities both in school and in informal learning environments outside of school. Informal STEM learning can take place in varied settings and involves a variety of STEM domains…

Wartella, Ellen, Ed. – Society for Research in Child Development, 2018
With decades of evidence to support early childhood development (ECD) programs and policies, investment in early childhood policies has expanded globally. The development of about 250 million children is at risk due to extreme poverty or stunting. Effective programs can support children's development, but must target risk level and be implemented…

Bridgman, Anne – Society for Research in Child Development, 2018
An estimated one in five school-age children in the United States speaks a language other than English in the home, and roughly half of these children are emerging bilingual students or English learners (ELs) when they enter school. Effectively educating children who are learning English as their second language is a national challenge with…

Bridgman, Anne – Society for Research in Child Development, 2018
Research tells us that children need safe, nurturing, predictable environments to developing a healthy way and to thrive. Yet with recent changes in immigration policies and increased enforcement activities, children of undocumented parents, many of whom are U.S. citizens, increasingly live in fear that family members may be arrested,…

Barajas-Gonzalez, R. Gabriela; Ayón, Cecilia; Torres, Franco – Society for Research in Child Development, 2018
Heeding the call put out by the "New England Journal of Medicine" (2017), we utilize an ecological-transactional model as a conceptual framework for understanding existing literature and for guiding future research on immigration enforcement threat and Latino child development. Using the World Health Organization's definition of…

Yoshikawa, Hirokazu; Wuermli, Alice J.; Raikes, Abbie; Kim, Sharon; Kabay, Sarah B. – Society for Research in Child Development, 2018
With decades of evidence to support early childhood development (ECD) programs and policies, investment in ECD has expanded worldwide. Currently, over 70 nations have national ECD legislation, the majority in the last 20 years. However, with these increased investments comes evidence that the capacity of policy systems to support ECD--across…

In the United States, there are significant disparities in the oral health of children from families with high and low socioeconomic status and between majority and minority children. Extant research on these health differences has focused predominately on caregiver knowledge, beliefs, and practices as well as structural barriers such as Medicaid…

Bridgman, Anne – Society for Research in Child Development, 2017
With most 4 year olds in the United States now in center-based early care, the need for aligning instruction from preschool through the early grades (PK-3) has become more pressing. Yet so far there has been little guidance on how to create alignment. Research on PK-3 alignment seeks to provide general principles for creating instructional…

Bridgman, Anne – Society for Research in Child Development, 2017
Gaps exist between research and practice, with some researchers expressing frustration that practitioners do not use or misuse research findings, and some practitioners saying research is not relevant to their work or not easily accessible or understood. In research-practice partnerships, which have proliferated recently, researchers and…

Bridgman, Anne – Society for Research in Child Development, 2017
Parenting is one of the most emotionally powerful, demanding, and consequential tasks of adulthood. Previously, the task of parenting was shared with extended family and community members.
