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.…

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.

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…

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…

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.

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…

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,…
