  • Dealing With Social Difficulty During Adolescence: The Role of Implicit
           Theories of Personality
    • Authors: David S. Yeager
      Abstract: Social difficulty during adolescence contributes to internalizing problems (e.g., depression, stress) and spurs cycles of aggression and retaliation. In this article, I review how implicit theories of personality—beliefs about whether people can change their socially relevant characteristics—cause some adolescents to respond to social difficulty in these ways while others do not. Believing an entity theory of personality—the belief that people cannot change—causes people to blame their own and others’ traits for social difficulty, and predicts more extreme affective, physiological, and behavioral responses (e.g., depression, aggression). Interventions that teach an incremental theory of personality—the belief that people can change—can reduce problematic reactions to social difficulty. I discuss why interventions to alter implicit theories improve adolescents’ responses to conflict, and I propose suggestions for research.

  • Foundations of Reasoning About Social Dominance
    • Authors: Anthea Pun; Susan A.J. Birch, Andrew S. Baron
      Abstract: Understanding the factors that shape the social landscape is essential for living in a group, where dominant individuals often have greater control over and access to desired resources such as food and mates. Recently, researchers have demonstrated that preverbal infants, similar to their nonhuman primate relatives, already possess the cognitive schemas necessary to represent social dominance in relationships, using ecologically relevant cues such as relative physical size and group size. In this article, we discuss the phylogenetic and ontogenetic origins of infants’ and children's capacity to represent social dominance in relationships and hierarchies, and examine how these initial representations are enriched across early childhood.

  • The Emergence of Episodic Foresight and Its Consequences
    • Authors: Thomas Suddendorf
      Abstract: Imagining future events and adjusting current behavior accordingly is a hallmark of human cognition. The development of such episodic foresight is attracting increasing research attention. In this article, I review a selection of recent work on the emergence of episodic foresight and its role in different domains, including learning, deliberate practice, affective forecasting, intertemporal choices, and anxiety. Studies suggest that during the preschool years, children begin to consider future scenarios, enabling them to plan, prepare, and shape their future, but many other consequences, such as the role of developing foresight in anticipating hazards, remain unexamined. The potential predictive effects of early individual differences in episodic foresight on later cognitive capacities and developmental outcomes deserve closer scrutiny.

  • The Link Between Playing Video Games and Positive Youth Outcomes
    • Authors: Paul J. C. Adachi; Teena Willoughby
      Abstract: Playing video games continues to be popular among youth. Although many studies have examined the impact of video games on negative outcomes, such as aggression and addiction, fewer studies have investigated potential positive outcomes. However, recent studies are addressing this imbalance. In this article, we review some of this research, specifically studies indicating a link between playing video games and enhanced well-being, problem-solving skills, intergroup relations, and physical activity. In addition, we discuss how self-determination theory may provide an underlying theoretical framework linking these domains of positive effects. We also address implications for ongoing research that furthers our knowledge of how video games affect youth development, including longitudinal studies that examine video game play and adjustment from childhood to young adulthood.

  • Interpersonal Development in Infancy: The Interconnectedness of Emotion
           Understanding and Social Cognition
    • Authors: Peter J. Reschke; Eric A. Walle, Daniel Dukes
      Abstract: Understanding emotion in interpersonal contexts involves appreciating others’ relations with the environment. This ability is related fundamentally to social cognition, including understanding the actions and goals of social partners. However, the significance of infants’ emotion understanding has been largely underemphasized in recent studies on infants’ social-cognitive development. In this review, we highlight the interconnectedness of emotion understanding and social cognition in socioemotional development. We incorporate a relational view of emotion to bridge empirical and theoretical work on emotional and social-cognitive development, and to demonstrate the utility of this approach for advancing novel areas of inquiry.

  • The Role of Children's Health in the Intergenerational Transmission of
           Economic Status
    • Authors: Anna Aizer
      Abstract: Intergenerational mobility is relatively low in the United States. Children who grow up in poverty are eight times more likely to live in poverty in adulthood than their counterparts who do not live in poverty. What is it about growing up in poverty that reduces the probability of economic success later in life' On average, children whose families live in poverty have lower levels of cognitive skills, noncognitive skills (e.g., behavior including perseverance and adaptability), and health, all of which contribute to earnings in adulthood. In this article, I examine the role children's health plays in intergenerational transmission of economic status from an economic perspective and in the context of a developed, high-income country (the United States). Evidence suggests that the mechanisms by which parents’ income affects children's health include, but are not limited to, reduced access to health insurance and medical care, greater exposure to environmental toxins, inadequate nutrition, and greater family violence and stress. I conclude with evidence suggesting that public investments in children's health can reduce the intergenerational transmission of economic status and the inequality of the next generation in the United States, as well as in other less developed nations.

  • Youth-Led Participatory Action Research: Overview and Potential for
           Enhancing Adolescent Development
    • Authors: Emily J. Ozer
      Abstract: In this article, I review youth-led participatory action research (YPAR) as an innovative equity-focused approach to promote adolescent health and well-being. YPAR draws on the expertise of adolescents as they conduct research and improve conditions that support healthy development. Specifically, I explain the core principles and processes of YPAR, provide examples, discuss theoretical and empirical support for the effects of YPAR at many levels, and identify areas for research.

  • Developing Mathematics Knowledge
    • Authors: Bethany Rittle-Johnson
      Abstract: Developing strong knowledge about mathematics is important for success academically, economically, and in life, but many children fail to become proficient in math. Research on the developmental relations between conceptual and procedural knowledge of math provides insights into the development of knowledge about math. First, competency in math requires children to develop conceptual knowledge, procedural knowledge, and procedural flexibility. Second, conceptual and procedural knowledge often develop in a bidirectional, iterative fashion, with improvements in one type of knowledge-supporting improvements in the other, as well as procedural flexibility. Third, learning techniques such as comparing, explaining, and exploring promote more than one type of knowledge about math, indicating that each is an important learning process. Researchers need to develop and validate measurement tools, devise more comprehensive theories of math development, and build more bridges between research and educational practice.

  • Genetic Syndromes and Developmental Risk for Autism Spectrum and Attention
           Deficit Hyperactivity Disorders: Insights From Fragile X Syndrome
    • Authors: Brianna R. Doherty; Gaia Scerif
      Abstract: Many genetic markers are associated with atypical developmental outcomes. In this article, we review evidence from studies on the most common inherited cause of intellectual disability, fragile X syndrome (FXS). We aim to highlight general developmental consequences as well as specific implications for autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), including the complexity of characterizing ASD and ADHD symptoms in FXS. We address three issues: First, links among genes, brain, and cognition need to be situated in a developmental context, even in a monogenic disorder like FXS. Second, the comparatively early age of diagnosis of FXS offers the opportunity to study developmental trajectories of risk and resilience for a complex, behaviorally defined disorder highly associated with FXS but diagnosed later: ASD. Third, the high occurrence of both ASD and ADHD in FXS allows for a novel investigation of their comorbidity, with important caveats.

  • Identity Formation in Adolescence: The Dynamic of Forming and
           Consolidating Identity Commitments
    • Authors: Elisabetta Crocetti
      Abstract: The biological, cognitive, and social changes that occur in adolescence stimulate young people to think about themselves, reflect on the kind of people they want to become, and find their place in society. Traditionally, these changes have been explained by Erikson's theory and Marcia's identity status model, but process-oriented models of identity provide new insights. In particular, dual-cycle models, such as the three-factor identity model, focus on the dynamic process by which young people iteratively form and maintain their identity over time. This iterative process is captured by the interplay of commitment, in-depth exploration, and reconsideration of commitment, as well as by distinct identity statuses. Furthermore, the extent to which adolescents find a stable identity is intertwined strongly with their psychosocial functioning and well-being.

  • Concern Over Internal, External, and Incidence Validity in Studies of
           Child-Care Quantity and Externalizing Behavior Problems
    • Authors: Eric Dearing; Henrik D. Zachrisson
      Abstract: Literature reviews have concluded that extensive time in early child care is associated with frequent externalizing behavior problems in children. In this article, we address three domains of validity in the work underlying these conclusions: internal, external, and incidence validity. Regarding internal validity, most studies rely on covariate-adjusted correlations, an approach that is especially vulnerable to selection bias. In studies using more rigorous approaches to reduce selection bias, results are mixed and often inconsistent with the hypothesis that a high quantity of child care causes externalizing problems. Regarding external validity, the field has relied too heavily on U.S. samples. We call for more international replications to allow for sociopolitical variations. Regarding incidence validity, study designs have the widest relevance when structured to address the opportunities and constraints families face today. We suggest researchers ask questions about child-care quantity that maximize validity in these three domains.

  • The Journey to Children's Mindsets—and Beyond
    • Authors: Carol S. Dweck
      Abstract: My career has been devoted to understanding the nature, workings, and development of children's motivation. Starting with research on motivation in animals, I went on to study the motivational impact of children's attributions, achievement goals, and mindsets about their abilities. I have explored how socialization practices affect these mindsets, as well as how interventions that change children's mindsets can enhance their motivation and learning. I am now developing a broad theory that puts motivation and the formation of mindsets (or beliefs) at the heart of social and personality development. It is hoped that this will attract even more young scholars in developmental psychology to the study of motivation.

  • Using Principles of Behavioral Epigenetics to Advance Research on
           Early-Life Stress
    • Authors: Elisabeth Conradt
      Abstract: While the negative effects of early-life stress on children's developmental outcomes are well documented, we know little about how these processes unfold and which children are more susceptible to these exposures. In this article, I outline how studying the effects of early-life stress on children's development can be advanced by considering how epigenetic processes may contribute to the emergence of children's behavior. The study of epigenetics can help pinpoint the mechanisms by which early-life stress may affect developmental outcomes and identify which children may be most sensitive to the effects of these exposures. I conclude by highlighting the challenges inherent in studying epigenetics in children and offer possible solutions.

  • Continuity and Stability in Development
    • Authors: Marc H. Bornstein; Diane L. Putnick, Gianluca Esposito
      Abstract: Developmental science is concerned with both consistency and change in characteristics through time. Consistency and change in development are tracked by group mean-level continuity and individual-order stability. Group mean-level and individual-order consistency and change are both developmentally informative and can coexist conceptually and empirically as they are partially orthogonal perspectives on development. Continuity and stability are broadly applicable to characteristics of the individual, dyad, and environment. Without the distinctions between mean-level continuity and individual-order stability, researchers who use the terms willy-nilly leave their readers in the dark as to which feature of development is meant. In this article, we distinguish the two types of consistency and change, and discuss their measurement, importance, moderation, and implications.

  • Self-Control in Childhood: A Synthesis of Perspectives and Focus on Early
    • Authors: Jeffrey R. Gagne
      Abstract: In this article, I describe three prominent developmental science perspectives on self-control in childhood, discuss differences and areas of consensus, and suggest a comprehensive, early integrative approach to research on this topic. The self-control perspectives are the self-regulatory concepts of delay of gratification and willpower, the cognitive neuroscience executive functioning construct of inhibitory control (IC), and the behavioral and emotional temperament dimensions of effortful control and IC. The primary focus of these approaches is similar, and differences are based largely on theory, methods, and the age of the children studied. Therefore, I agree with a synthesis of these perspectives championed by other developmental scientists, and propose comprehensive, multitheoretical, multimethod empirical study that begins when self-control emerges in toddlerhood.

  • Callous–Unemotional Behaviors in Early Childhood: Measurement, Meaning,
           and the Influence of Parenting
    • Authors: Rebecca Waller; Luke W. Hyde
      Abstract: Antisocial behavior is costly and harmful to families, communities, and society. With roots in early childhood, antisocial behavior puts children at risk for poor physical and mental health outcomes across development. Callous–unemotional (CU) traits identify a subgroup of youth with particularly severe and stable antisocial behavior. Although much literature has examined CU traits in late childhood and adolescence, researchers are beginning to elucidate the developmental origins of CU traits. In this article, we review research examining the measurement and correlates of CU behaviors in early childhood, along with evidence that these early behaviors predict later measures of CU traits. We then describe research highlighting the role that parents play in the development of CU behaviors in early childhood. Finally, we outline translational implications and ethical considerations for studying CU behaviors and consider the use of the term CU traits in young children.

  • The Early Development of Human Aggression
    • Authors: Dale F. Hay
      Abstract: Infants develop the capacity to use force against other people in the first years of life, which gradually transforms into intentional aggression, particularly as they understand possession rights. Individual differences in expressing anger and using force are evident from 6 months and predict later aggressive conduct problems. In contrast, gender differences emerge gradually over early childhood. Toddlers' sparing use of force in interactions with other children is linked to other forms of sociability, but excessive rage and using physical force in infancy predict problematic levels of aggressiveness in later childhood. Acknowledging the early origins of aggression can inform prevention and intervention strategies.

  • Causes and Consequences of Children's Forgiveness
    • Authors: Reine C. Wal; Johan C. Karremans, Antonius H. N. Cillessen
      Abstract: Although the topic of forgiveness has received much attention in research with adults, little is known about the precursors of forgiveness in children. This is unfortunate because research suggests that the capacity to forgive is associated with numerous beneficial outcomes, such as improved social relationships and psychological well-being. In this article, we examine the determinants and consequences associated with children's propensity to forgive. In the first part, we focus on four determinants: the role of children's characteristics, the relationship between victim and offender, the peer group, and family background. We propose that these determinants—together and on their own—predict children's forgiveness. In the second part, we provide an overview of the consequences of children's forgiveness, both at intrapersonal and interpersonal levels. We close with suggestions for research.

  • Ecological Commitments: Why Developmental Science Needs Naturalistic
    • Authors: Audun Dahl
      Abstract: Much of developmental science aims to explain how or whether children's experiences influence their thoughts and actions. Developmental theories make assumptions and claims—what I call ecological commitments—about events outside research contexts. In this article, I argue that most developmental theories make ecological commitments about children's thoughts, actions, and experiences outside research contexts, and that these commitments sometimes go unstated and untested. I also argue that naturalistic methods can provide evidence for or against ecological commitments, and that naturalistic and experimental studies address unique yet complementary questions. Rather than argue for increasing the ecological validity of experiments or abandoning laboratory research, I propose reconsidering the relations among developmental theories, naturalistic methods, and laboratory experiments.

  • New Directions and Challenges in Preventing Conduct Problems in Early
    • Authors: Daniel S. Shaw; Lindsay E. Taraban
      Abstract: In this article, we review advances in developing and preventing conduct problems in early childhood and identify challenges. Among the topics we address are expanding the targets of prevention programs beyond improving parenting skills, implementing family-based interventions during early childhood for families living in impoverished communities, making greater use of community platforms that serve young children at risk for early conduct problems, and incorporating techniques such as motivational interviewing to improve families’ engagement in nontraditional mental health settings.

  • Affective Parenting Behaviors, Adolescent Depression, and Brain
           Development: A Review of Findings From the Orygen Adolescent Development
    • Authors: Orli S. Schwartz; Julian G. Simmons, Sarah Whittle, Michelle L. Byrne, Marie B. H. Yap, Lisa B. Sheeber, Nicholas B. Allen
      Abstract: Parenting plays a multifaceted role in adolescent development. In this article, we review studies based on an observational assessment of affective parenting behaviors collected as part of the longitudinal Orygen Adolescent Development Study and explore three ways that parenting may predict adolescent-onset depression. Specifically, we review findings that observed affective parental behaviors prospectively predict depressive symptoms and the onset of depressive disorder, predict adolescent depression indirectly via emotion regulation, and interact with brain development to predict adolescent depression. Parents who express higher frequencies of aggression or lower frequencies of positivity, or who are more likely to respond negatively to their adolescents’ positive and aggressive behaviors, tend to have adolescents at greater risk for depression and suboptimal brain development. Accounting for the direct, indirect, and moderating effects of parenting may enable us to characterize more accurately the trajectories of adolescent development, which can inform prevention and early intervention efforts.

  • The Social Tasks of Friendship: Do Boys and Girls Excel in Different
    • Authors: Amanda J. Rose; Steven R. Asher
      Pages: 3 - 8
      Abstract: Research documents the strengths of girls’ friendships compared to boys’ friendships leading to the inference that boys are not very skilled as friends. In this article, we use a friendship tasks framework to propose that this inference is premature and should be reconciled with evidence that boys are as satisfied as girls with their friendships and that their friendships are as stable over time. We also propose that the inference arises partly because the friendship tasks that girls handle well have been studied extensively, whereas certain friendship tasks boys handle as well as or more successfully than girls are understudied. These tasks include being a fun and enjoyable companion, coping when a friend violates a core expectation of friendship, and sustaining friendships in the broader social context of a friend having other friends. Finally, we suggest that girls and boys who develop skills to respond to a range of friendship tasks will benefit in the long term.

  • Promoting Neuroprotective Care in Neonatal Intensive Care Units and
           Preterm Infant Development: Insights From the Neonatal Adequate Care for
           Quality of Life Study
    • Authors: Rosario Montirosso; Ed Tronick, Renato Borgatti
      Pages: 9 - 15
      Abstract: During their stay in a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), preterm infants are exposed to adverse stressful experiences that deplete their resources and often result in problematic functioning and developmental outcomes. The impact of specific developmental care practices (e.g., kangaroo care) on preterm infants has been researched extensively. Moreover, the dissemination of knowledge about developmental care has facilitated broader neuroprotective care (NC) that combines different kinds of developmental care practices in different NICUs. However, little is known about how variation in NC affects infants and their long-term developmental outcomes. Using the findings from the Neonatal Adequate Care for Quality of Life project, in this article, we discuss how variation in the NC incorporated by NICUs into standard care affects short- and long-term outcomes in children born preterm.

  • An Integrative Conceptual Model of Parental Racial/Ethnic and Emotion
           Socialization and Links to Children's Social-Emotional Development Among
           African American Families
    • Authors: Angel S. Dunbar; Esther M. Leerkes, Stephanie I. Coard, Andrew J. Supple, Susan Calkins
      Pages: 16 - 22
      Abstract: Researchers have called for increased evaluation of the processes that contribute to African American children's successful emotional development in the face of discrimination. Parents’ racial/ethnic and emotion socialization have been linked to children's emotional adaption. Although few studies have explicitly evaluated their joint influence on African American children's emotion adaptation, researchers studying racial and ethnic socialization have indirectly incorporated emotion socialization through evaluating parents’ guided emotion regulation strategies as ways to cope with discrimination. Similarly, researchers who study emotion socialization have described emotion socialization practices among African American parents as intentionally preparing children for racial bias regarding how others perceive their emotions. In this article, we synthesize two separate and emerging literatures—the racial/ethnic socialization literature and the literature on emotion socialization among African American families—and outline a conceptual model illustrating the overlap in the two constructs and their joint influence on African American children's social-emotional adjustment.

  • U.S. Military Children and the Wartime Deployments of Family Members
    • Authors: Shelley MacDermid Wadsworth; Keisha M. Bailey, Elizabeth C. Coppola
      Pages: 23 - 28
      Abstract: In 2014, 1.8 million American children lived in military families, and they represented only a fraction of the U.S. children exposed directly to parents' wartime deployments over the past 15 years. In this article, we summarize recent research about military children in U.S. families and propose directions for research. Emerging from studies across the country are troubling elevations in levels of risky behaviors and mental health problems in military children, particularly when their parents have been deployed. The experiences of children in military families can help us understand risk and resilience not just in military children but in children in the general population.

  • The Potential for Youth Programs to Promote African American Youth's
           Development of Ethnic and Racial Identity
    • Authors: Aerika Brittian Loyd; Brittney V. Williams
      Pages: 29 - 38
      Abstract: Effective programs for youth can reduce problem behaviors and promote positive development. In particular, cultural assets (e.g., ethnic–racial identity) are important for African American youth's health and development. In this article, we argue that youth programs represent an important social context for African American youth's development of positive ethnic–racial identity, and we present a conceptual framework for understanding how such programs may affect African American youth's development in this area. Then, we provide examples of evidence-based programs that have assessed this developmental process among African American youth. We conclude with considerations for research.

  • To Copy or To Innovate' The Role of Personality and Social Networks in
           Children's Learning Strategies
    • Authors: Bruce Rawlings; Emma Flynn, Rachel Kendal
      Pages: 39 - 44
      Abstract: In our technologically complex world, children frequently have problems to solve and skills to learn. They can develop solutions through learning strategies involving social learning or asocial endeavors. While evidence is emerging that children may differ individually in their propensity to adopt different learning strategies, little is known about what underlies these differences. In this article, we reflect on recent research with children, adults, and nonhuman animals regarding individual differences in learning strategies. We suggest that characteristics of children's personalities and children's positions in their social networks are pertinent to individual differences in their learning strategies. These are likely pivotal factors in the learning strategies children adopt, and thus can help us understand who copies and who innovates, an important question for cultural evolution. We also discuss how methodological issues constrain developmental researchers in this field and provide suggestions for ongoing work.

  • Parents' Sexual Orientation and Children's Development
    • Authors: Charlotte J. Patterson
      Pages: 45 - 49
      Abstract: What if any influence does parents' sexual orientation have on children's development' Research suggests that, contrary to concerns voiced by many observers, parents' sexual orientation has little if any direct impact on children's development. Even so, some distinctive qualities of experiences in families of lesbian and gay parents have been noted, and their implications are not fully understood. Moreover, research on individual differences among families headed by lesbian mothers and gay fathers, and their possible impact on children, is still in its early phases. In this article, I provide an overview of research in this area and offer suggestions for further studies.

  • Prosocial Arousal in Children
    • Authors: Robert Hepach
      Pages: 50 - 55
      Abstract: Children's prosociality emerges early in life, which suggests that helping others is rooted deeply in human nature. At the same time, the motivation underlying young children's instrumental helping poses a puzzle. Children do not express a specific emotion such as sympathy when removing physical obstacles for others. Instead of being motivated by a concern for others’ well-being, toddlers may act to tie up loose ends or engage in social interactions, or they may be motivated because their goals align with those of others. Recent research has addressed the underlying motivation of children's helping by directly measuring children's internal arousal via changes in the dilation of their pupils. In several studies, children's arousal in response to others’ unfulfilled needs is genuinely prosocial and linked to the well-being of others. This prosocial arousal may lie at the heart of not only children's instrumental helping but also their prosociality in general.

  • Fair Resource Allocation Among Children and Adolescents: The Role of Group
           and Developmental Processes
    • Authors: Adam Rutland; Melanie Killen
      Pages: 56 - 62
      Abstract: The fair exchange of resources provides a basis for developing morality, yet research has rarely examined the role of group processes that are central to children's world. In this article, we describe a new perspective as well as research demonstrating that group processes play a key role in the fair allocation of resources among children and adolescents. We contend that when children allocate resources, group processes and moral judgments are relevant, a developmental shift occurs in children's ability to coordinate moral and group concerns, and group processes contribute to intergroup bias regarding allocations but also to efforts to consider the status of disadvantaged groups. Our perspective informs efforts to reduce prejudice as well as increase fairness and equality in situations in which group processes are relevant for allocating resources fairly.

  • Teenage Mothers Today: What We Know and How It Matters
    • Authors: Stefanie Mollborn
      Pages: 63 - 69
      Abstract: Over the past two decades, births to U.S. teenagers have fallen and no longer follow overall fertility patterns. Yet the unique challenges faced by teenage mothers and their families justify continued research. Across disciplines, newer work has furthered our understanding of teenage motherhood today. In this article, I highlight four areas of progress: processes of selection into teenage motherhood, the broader consequences of teenage childbearing beyond the socioeconomic realm, heterogeneity of effects, and the application of life course principles. Emerging societal trends such as complex family structures, a stalled recovery from the recession for families of low socioeconomic status, and a rapidly evolving political environment for reproductive health care continue to challenge the lives of teenage mothers. Given that the consequences for teenagers of becoming mothers may change, continued research is needed. Shifts in policy to favor supporting teenage mothers and addressing the causes of both teenage pregnancy and social disadvantage may help improve the lives of these mothers and their families.

  • Attachment in the Early Life Course: Meta-Analytic Evidence for Its Role
           in Socioemotional Development
    • Authors: Ashley M. Groh; R. M. Pasco Fearon, Marinus H. IJzendoorn, Marian J. Bakermans-Kranenburg, Glenn I. Roisman
      Pages: 70 - 76
      Abstract: After decades of research on early attachment relationships, questions remain concerning whether the evidence supports claims made by attachment theory, in particular, that variation in early attachment predicts children's developmental adaptation or maladaptation, and that characteristics of children's temperament does not determine attachment. To evaluate these claims, we conducted meta-analyses on early attachment and children's social competence with peers, externalizing problems, internalizing symptoms, and temperament. In this article, we summarize our findings, which support attachment theory—though we note caveats. We also call for new measurement models, a focus on mediating and moderating mechanisms, and multisite replications.
