Abstract Phonological awareness and letter knowledge have been shown to be precursors of children's word reading and reading comprehension. As a consequence, promoting children's phonological awareness should result in better reading skills. In order to evaluate this assumption, we trained phonological awareness and letter knowledge of 370 German preschool children and compared their word reading and reading comprehension skills with those of a group of 99 untrained children. Our findings indica...

Abstract Although socially prescribed perfectionism has been associated with psychosocial difficulties, its longitudinal associations with adolescent bullying perpetration, peer victimization, and narcissism remain unknown. We examined these links in a sample of 577 adolescents assessed annually on six occasions (Grades 7–12; mean age 13.02 (SD = 0.38) in Grade 7) using autoregressive cross-lagged path analyses. Results indicated that socially prescribed perfectionism positively predicted peer v...

Abstract Minority and majority acculturation orientations (i.e., their preferences for minorities) show consistent intergroup asymmetries: Minority adolescents see heritage and mainstream culture orientations as compatible (i.e., positively correlated), whereas majority adolescents see them as conflicting (i.e., negatively correlated). It remains unclear (a) how minority and majority adolescents' compatible versus conflicting acculturation patterns evolve over time; and (b) how peer acculturatio...

Abstract The current study is a two-year study examining perceptions of teacher and peer discrimination among Latinx children in middle childhood (n = 156). We examined the frequency and type of teacher and peer discrimination Latinx children perceive; whether perceptions of teacher and peer discrimination predict changes in children's academic attitudes over time (namely, their interest in academics, perceived importance of academic success, school belonging, and perceptions of Latinx peers' ac...

Abstract Prior research has yet to elucidate how constellations of protective factors in childhood and prevention efforts simultaneously may influence youth involvement in problem behaviors across different points in development. The current study examines how latent classes of social and emotional learning (SEL) skills, parent-child relationships, and peer influences in third grade and receipt of an ongoing SEL intervention predict substance use and violence in fifth and eighth grade. The urban...

Abstract Support for the idea that self-regulation and early academic skills co-develop in young children is accumulating. The majority of this research, however, is conducted in countries with a school readiness approach to early childhood education. We investigated bidirectional relations between self-regulation and mathematics, expressive vocabulary, and phonological awareness in children (N = 243, ages 6–7) making the transition from a play-based kindergarten context to a formal educational ...

Abstract Guided by theory stressing person-environment interactions, we tested whether parenting correlates of peer victimization would be stronger for adolescents with internalizing difficulties than those without. Participants (N = 362, 56.4% girls, M age = 16.11, 56% Latino) in the 9th to 11th grades responded to questionnaires about their parents' behavior and nominated their peers on items tapping internalizing behaviors and victimization experiences. Both positive (i.e., warmth) and negati...

Abstract Few studies have investigated the associations between parent–child relationships and child sleep across distinct developmental stages using objective measures of sleep and while considering both parents. The current study aimed to investigate the longitudinal associations between the quality of parent–child interactions in toddlerhood and sleep duration and quality at early school age. The sample consisted of 88 families. The quality of mother–child and father–child interactions was as...

Abstract Sleep regulation is an important developmental milestone for children. Although sleep quality has been associated with mental health as a function of negative valence of memories, to our knowledge, there is no information about autobiographical memory specificity and sleep functioning among children ages 3 to 6 years. Because autobiographical memory is consolidated at 4 and a half years of age, this is an important developmental period to study. Thus, the main aim of this study was to e...

Abstract Depression and acculturative stress are common among Latina mothers, yet little is known about how these variables are related to parenting practices and in turn, to the mental health functioning of their young children. The present study used a sample of Mexican-origin mothers of 3- to 6-year-old children ( N = 175) to test a model of maternal depression and acculturative stress as predictors of child internalizing and externalizing problems, mediated by authoritarian and authoritative...
