Interactions between Callous Unemotional Behaviors and Executive Function in Early Childhood Predict later Aggression and Lower Peer-liking in Late-childhood – Journal of Abnormal Child Psychology

ABSTRACT Callous unemotional (CU) behaviors are linked to aggression, behavior problems, and difficulties in peer relationships in children and adolescents. However, few studies have examined whether early childhood CU behaviors predict aggression or peer-rejection during late-childhood or potential moderation of this relationship by executive function. The current study examined whether the interaction of CU behaviors … [Read More] Interactions between Callous Unemotional Behaviors and Executive Function in Early Childhood Predict later Aggression and Lower Peer-liking in Late-childhood – Journal of Abnormal Child Psychology

Foundations of Mathematics and Literacy: The role of executive functioning components – Journal of Experimental Child Psychology

The Function of Executive Function: Everyday manifestations of regulated thinking in preschool settings – Early Childhood Education Journal

ABSTRACT Executive function (EF) encompasses higher-order mental processes necessary for the conscious control of thought and action in the service of goals. Once thought not to apply to children at all, EF is now at the center of a burgeoning body of research on young children over the last 10-15 years indicating that it is … [Read More] The Function of Executive Function: Everyday manifestations of regulated thinking in preschool settings – Early Childhood Education Journal

Childcare Providers’ Use of Practices to Promote Young Children’s Social-Emotional Competence – Infants & Young Children

The Relationship Between Children’s Executive Functioning, Theory of Mind, and Verbal Skills with Their Own and Others’ Behaviour in a Cooperative Context: Changes in relations from early to middle school-age  – Infant and Child Development

ABSTRACT Learning to behave in socially competent ways is an essential component of children’s development. This study examined the relations between children’s social, communicative, and cognitive skills and their behaviours during a cooperative task, as well as how these relationships change at different ages. Early school-age (5–8 years old) and middle school-age (9–12 years old) children completed … [Read More] The Relationship Between Children’s Executive Functioning, Theory of Mind, and Verbal Skills with Their Own and Others’ Behaviour in a Cooperative Context: Changes in relations from early to middle school-age  – Infant and Child Development

Child Conduct Problems Across Home and School Contexts: A person-centered approach – Journal of Psychopathology and Behavioral Assessment

ABSTRACT To examine patterns of conduct problems across the home and school context, we used latent class analysis to analyze primary caregivers’ and teachers’ ratings on the conduct problems subscale of the Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire (Goodman Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry, 38, 581–586, 1997) in the Family Life Project (N?=?1,292), a prospective study … [Read More] Child Conduct Problems Across Home and School Contexts: A person-centered approach – Journal of Psychopathology and Behavioral Assessment

Child Routines and Self-Regulation Serially Mediate Parenting Practices and Externalizing Problems in Preschool Children – Child & Youth Care Forum

ABSTRACT Background: Studies clearly indicate that parenting practices relate to child externalizing behaviors, although the mechanisms underlying this relation are less well understood. There has been limited evaluation of child routines and self-regulation in relation to these variables, and no known studies have evaluated all of these variables simultaneously. Objective: This study examined child routines and self-regulation … [Read More] Child Routines and Self-Regulation Serially Mediate Parenting Practices and Externalizing Problems in Preschool Children – Child & Youth Care Forum

Longitudinal Associations Between Parental Bonding, Parenting Stress, and Executive Functioning in Toddlerhood – Journal of Child and Family Studies

ABSTRACT Early executive functioning is an important predictor for future development of children’s cognitive skills and behavioral outcomes. Parenting behavior has proven to be a key environmental determinant of child executive functioning. However, the association of parental affect and cognitions directed to the child with child executive functioning has been understudied. Therefore, in the present … [Read More] Longitudinal Associations Between Parental Bonding, Parenting Stress, and Executive Functioning in Toddlerhood – Journal of Child and Family Studies

Ask Me! Self-reported Features of Adolescents Experiencing Neglect or Emotional Maltreatment: A rapid systematic review – Child: Care, Health and Development

ABSTRACT Background: Neglect is often overlooked in adolescence, due in part to assumptions about autonomy and misinterpretation of behaviors being part of normal adolescent development. Emotional maltreatment (abuse or neglect) has a damaging effect throughout the lifespan, but is rarely recognized amongst adolescents. Our review aims to identify features that adolescents experiencing neglect and/ or emotional … [Read More] Ask Me!

Relations between Executive Function, Behavioral Regulation, and Achievement: Moderation by family income – Journal of Applied Developmental Psychology

Highlights Similar relations between EF tasks and behavioral regulation by family income EF and behavioral regulation were significantly related to academic achievement Inhibitory control and achievement were less related for Head Start versus others Few differences between EF, behavioral regulation, and achievement by family income ABSTRACT Children’s executive function (EF) and behavioral regulation skills are … [Read More] Relations between Executive Function, Behavioral Regulation, and Achievement: Moderation by family income – Journal of Applied Developmental Psychology

Emotion Regulation, Coping, and Decision Making: Three linked skills for preventing externalizing problems in adolescence – Child Development

ABSTRACT Research on executive control during the teenage years points to shortfalls in emotion regulation, coping, and decision making as three linked capabilities associated with youth’s externalizing behavior problems. Evidence gleaned from a detailed review of the literature makes clear that improvement of all three capabilities is critical to help young people better navigate challenges and … [Read More] Emotion Regulation, Coping, and Decision Making: Three linked skills for preventing externalizing problems in adolescence – Child Development

Maternal Executive Function, Heart Rate, and EEG Alpha Reactivity Interact in the Prediction of Harsh Parenting – Journal of Family Psychology

ABSTRACT Do physiological and behavioral performance indicators of effortful cognitive self-regulation converge additively or interactively in their statistical prediction of individual differences in harsh parenting? To answer this question, we examined heart rate (HR) and electroencephalography alpha (?) reactivity during executive function (EF) tasks, along with observed and self-reported indicators of harsh parenting. A socioeconomically … [Read More] Maternal Executive Function, Heart Rate, and EEG Alpha Reactivity Interact in the Prediction of Harsh Parenting – Journal of Family Psychology

Event-related Potential Measures of Executive Functioning from Preschool to Adolescence – Developmental Medicine & Child Neurology

ABSTRACT Executive functions are a collection of cognitive abilities necessary for behavioural control and regulation, and are important for school success. Executive deficits are common across acquired and developmental disorders in childhood and beyond. This review aims to summarize how studies using event-related potential (ERP) can provide insight into mechanisms underpinning how executive functions develop … [Read More] Event-related Potential Measures of Executive Functioning from Preschool to Adolescence – Developmental Medicine & Child Neurology
