Many of these clusters of risks are better thought of as comprising a developmental “circumstance” … [Read More] Patterns of Multiple Risk Exposures for Low Receptive Vocabulary Growth 4-8 Years in the Longitudinal Study of Australian Children – Plos One

Child-Oriented or Parent-Oriented Focused Intervention: Which is the better way to decrease children’s externalizing behaviors? – Journal of Child and Family Studies

ABSTRACT Research has tried to identify risk factors that increase the likelihood of difficulties with externalizing behavior. The relations between individual or environmental factors and externalizing behavior have been especially documented. Child-oriented and parent-oriented interventions have been designed in order to decrease externalizing behavior in preschoolers. To date, however, research has largely been compartmentalized. It … [Read More] Child-Oriented or Parent-Oriented Focused Intervention: Which is the better way to decrease children’s externalizing behaviors? – Journal of Child and Family Studies

The Development of Self-regulation Across Early Childhood – Developmental Psychology

ABSTRACT The development of early childhood self-regulation is often considered an early life marker for later life successes. Yet little longitudinal research has evaluated whether there are different trajectories of self-regulation development across children. This study investigates the development of behavioral self-regulation between the ages of 3 and 7 years, with a direct focus on … [Read More] The Development of Self-regulation Across Early Childhood – Developmental Psychology
