Parental mind-mindedness, the parent’s propensity to treat the child as an intentional agent, has repeatedly shown to promote children’s development of social understanding and secure attachment. Less is known about whether the impact of maternal and paternal mind-mindedness extends to children’s social and behavior problems. We investigated the combined effect of mothers’ and fathers’ (N = 104) mind-mindedness at 4, 12, and 30 months on children’s social competence and externalizing and interna...

AbstractThis study conducted longitudinal comparisons of US and Dutch paternal ratings of temperament, measured via the Infant Behaviour Questionnaire-Revised, at 4 months (US n = 99; Dutch n = 127) and 12 months (US n = 66; Dutch n = 112) of age. US fathers rated their infant higher in the broad temperament trait Surgency, and its subscales vocal reactivity, high-intensity pleasure, and activity level. US fathers also rated their infants higher in negative emotionality, and its subscales of sad...

The chapter investigates associations between parental socialization goals and ethnotheories concerning child rearing practices, toddler temperament, and behavior problems for the whole sample, between and within specific countries. Results suggest relations between parental socialization goals/ethnotheories and child temperament along with behavior problems. The findings provide a glimpse into the complex pattern of interactions between cultural dimensions, parental psychology, and social-emoti...

Researchers in 14 countries recruited families of toddlers between the ages of roughly 18 and 36 months. These samples ranged from 48 to 119 participants, for a total N of 853. Primary caregivers completed the Early Childhood Behavior Questionnaire (ECBQ) regarding temperament; the Child Behavior Checklist (CBCL) regarding behavior problems; adaptations of Socialization Goals and Parental Ethnotheories questionnaires regarding parental beliefs; and new questionnaires concerning daily activities ...

Joint Effort Toddler Temperament Consortium (JETTC) cultures differed strongly in use of discipline techniques. Hitting/spanking was used most in Brazil and least in Finland. Shouting was used most by high Long-Term Orientation cultures. Time-out was common in Spain, Belgium, and US, and rare in Finland. Taking away privileges was common in Spain and not in Russia. Requiring children to think about their misbehavior was most common in high Power Distance and Collectivist cultures. Asking the chi...

The aim of this chapter is to integrate the developmental niche by exploring how parental socialization goals and ethnotheories are related to the toddler’s daily routine and maternal responses to child temperament displays. Country-level analyses revealed that children in countries high in relational socialization goals watched television longer and played less primarily for entertainment. Children in countries high in autonomous socialization goals spent more time on computers, slept longer at...

This study investigated the link between (a) parents’ social trait and state anxiety and (b) children’s fear and avoidance in social referencing situations in a longitudinal design and considered the modulating role of child temperament in these links. Children were confronted with a stranger and a robot, separately with their father and mother at 1 (N = 122), at 2.5 (N = 117), and at 4.5 (N = 111) years of age. Behavioral inhibition (BI) was separately observed at 1 and 2.5 years. Parents’ soci...

Analyses in this chapter were aimed at identifying potential mediators classically defined as intermediaries that convey effects of other independent variables on outcomes. For mediation to be considered, all variables involved had to demonstrate significant correlations with one another. We thus considered 16 mediation possibilities. Six models deemed reflective of mediation were categorized as either involving “Think about It” Discipline as the mediator between Individualism/Power Distance and...

Cross-cultural comparisons of parent-reported behavior problems in toddlers revealed substantial effects of culture. Internalizing and total problems were highest in Collectivist and high Power Distance countries, such as China, Brazil, and Russia; and were low in the US and European nations. Externalizing problems were not clearly associated with cultural orientation, but were elevated in Latin American countries (Brazil, Chile, and Mexico) countries, and in Russia and Finland, with low externa...
