Disentangling the direction of associations between sleep and temperament in toddlers
(Taylor & Francis, 2019-06-24)
Objectives/Background: Although much research has investigated the associations between children’s sleep and their temperament, the direction of these associations remains unclear, largely due to a lack of longitudinal ...
Mother–infant interaction and child brain morphology : a multidimensional approach to maternal sensitivity
Sensitivity and brain structure
Emerging research suggests that normative variation in parenting quality relates to children's brain development. However, although the young brain is presumed to be especially sensitive to environmental influence, to our ...
The role of paternal mind‐mindedness in preschoolers' self‐regulated conduct
This study examined the prospective links between paternal mind‐mindedness (MM) and 2 indices of preschoolers' self‐regulated con-duct, namely, inhibitory control and rule‐compatible conduct.Ninety‐two families (47 boys) ...
Reconsidering the links between sibship size, maternal sensitivity, and child attachment : a multidimensional interactive approach
Sibship size and maternal sensitivity
(American Psychological Association, 2018-04)
Despite being a well-documented predictor of children’s cognitive and social development, sibship has received remarkably little attention in the attachment and maternal sensitivity literature. The only study that has ...
From early relationships to preacademic knowledge : a socio-cognitive developmental cascade to school readiness
This study aimed to test a four-wave sequential mediation model linking mother–child attachment to children’s school readiness through child executive functioning (EF) and prosociality in toddlerhood and the preschool ...
Attachment security and developmental patterns of growth in executive functioning during early elementary school
Growth in executive functionning
Despite the extensive research demonstrating the importance of child executive functioning (EF) for school adjustment, little longitudinal work has formally examined developmental change in EF during the early school years. ...
Normative developmental trajectories of actigraphic sleep variables during the preschool period : a three-wave longitudinal study
Preschool sleep trajectories
Important changes in sleep are believed to occur in the preschool years, but studies that have documented these changes were generally cross‐sectional or based on subjective sleep measures. The current longitudinal study ...
Parent–child relationships and child executive functioning at school entry: the importance of fathers
(Taylor & Francis, 2017-06-21)
This study aimed to examine the unique and interactive contributions of the quality of mothers’ and fathers’ relationships with their toddlers to the prediction of children’s subsequent executive functioning (EF). The ...
Stability in maternal autonomy support and child executive functioning
The purpose of this study was to examine the role of early and current maternal autonomy support, and of its stability over time, in predicting child executive functioning (EF). Seventy-eight mother–child dyads participated ...
Objective and subjective measures of sleep among preschoolers: Disentangling attachment security and dependency
Attachment and sleep among toddlers: disentangling attachment security and dependency.
Many scholars have proposed that parent-child attachment security should favor child sleep. Research has yet, however, to provide convincing support for this hypothesis. The current study used objective measures of sleep ...
