Children’s motivation to master challenging tasks is an important predictor of school success, and yet, such motivation declines during adolescence. It is therefore important to identify ways to intervene to reduce this decline. One malleable factor that is associated with motivation is parenting. The present study used structural equation modeling (SEM) to predict Hungarian seventh graders’ (n = 296) school grades from both youths’ and mothers’ perceptions of parenting (care/warmth, support of ...

Abstract In this chapter, we discuss our perspective on mastery motivation, including its origins, current tenets, measurement, research based on it, and future directions. White (1959) proposed a special, nonhomeostatic motive for curious, playful exploration and the desire to effectively interact with the environment, which he labeled “effectance motivation.” This concept inspired the research by Yarrow and his colleagues (e.g., Yarrow, Morgan, Jennings, Harmon, & Gaiter, 1982 ; Yarrow, Rubens...

Abstract Recent research has documented the importance of school readiness in young children. Children who start school without basic skills often continue to show lower achievement throughout schooling. Most current assessments of school readiness focus on early measures of academic skills, such as literacy and numeracy. Although these skills are useful in predicting school success, research suggests that socioemotional and motivational factors may be even more important. Moreover, although the...

Americans typically are more emotionally expressive than Chinese, even in early childhood (Camras et al. in Infancy 11:131–155, 2007; Markus and Kitayama in The self in social psychology. Psychology Press, New York, pp 339–371, 1999; Rothbaum and Rusk in Socioemotional development in cultural context. Guilford Press, New York, pp 99–127, 2011), probably because emotional expression, especially intense or negative expression, disrupts social harmony and is discouraged in Chinese children, but ind...

How one behaves in one’s world and the social relationships one experiences in one’s life are always associated with one’s emotions. A key part of healthy development is to learn how to adaptively regulate or govern the links among behavior, experience, and emotions. The child must attain the skills to adjust, or regulate, his or her emotions to enable responses that promote adaptive social experiences/social relationships. Emotion regulation (ER) is, then, a key facet of healthy and positive de...
