Sleep and aggressive behavior among toddlers: investigating directionality of associations
Sleep and aggression in toddlers
(Wayne State University Press, 2018)
This study examined the reciprocal associations between sleep (duration and quality) and aggressive behavior in toddlers. The sample consisted of 82 children (43 boys and 39 girls) and their parents who completed two ...
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 ...
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 ...
Child temperamental anger, mother–child interactions, and socio-emotional functioning at school entry
Temperamental anger and child functioning
This study investigated the role of temperamental anger in toddlerhood in the prediction of child socio-emotional functioning at school entry and the moderating function of mother–child interactions in these predictive ...
Attachment security and maternal behaviors as predictors of children's psychosocial adjustment at school entry
Mother–child relationships and children’s psychosocial functioning : the specific roles of attachment security and maternal behavior
(Taylor & Francis, 2018-05-17)
Objective. This paper aimed to examine the contributions of a second assessment time point of attachment security, along with assessments of maternal behavior (sensitivity and autonomy support), to the prediction of ...
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) ...
Actigraphy data in pediatric research : the role of sleep diaries
Actigraphy and sleep diary
Background. When assessing children's sleep using actigraphy, researchers usually rely on a sleep diary completed by a parent as an aid in scoring actigraphic data. However, parental nonadherence in completing the sleep ...
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 ...
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 ...
