   Abstract = {This study used data from 6 sites and 3 countries to examine
             the developmental course of physical aggression in childhood
             and to analyze its linkage to violent and nonviolent
             offending outcomes in adolescence. The results indicate that
             among boys there is continuity in problem behavior from
             childhood to adolescence and that such continuity is
             especially acute when early problem behavior takes the form
             of physical aggression. Chronic physical aggression during
             the elementary school years specifically increases the risk
             for continued physical violence as well as other nonviolent
             forms of delinquency during adolescence. However, this
             conclusion is reserved primarily for boys, because the
             results indicate no clear linkage between childhood physical
             aggression and adolescent offending among female samples
             despite notable similarities across male and female samples
             in the developmental course of physical aggression in

   Abstract = {A longitudinal model of parent academic involvement,
             behavioral problems, achievement, and aspirations was
             examined for 463 adolescents, followed from 7th
             (approximately 12 years old) through 11th (approximately 16
             years old) grades. Parent academic involvement in 7th grade
             was negatively related to 8th-grade behavioral problems and
             positively related to 11th-grade aspirations. There were
             variations across parental education levels and ethnicity:
             Among the higher parental education group, parent academic
             involvement was related to fewer behavioral problems, which
             were related to achievement and then aspirations. For the
             lower parental education group, parent academic involvement
             was related to aspirations but not to behavior or
             achievement. Parent academic involvement was positively
             related to achievement for African Americans but not for
             European Americans. Parent academic involvement may be
             interpreted differently and serve different purposes across
             sociodemographic backgrounds.},

   Abstract = {A longitudinal prospective design was used to test the
             generalizability of low levels of social preference and high
             levels of antisocial peer involvement as risk factors for
             delinquent behavior problems to African American (AA) and
             European American (EA) boys and girls (N = 384). Social
             preference scores were computed from peer reports in middle
             childhood (ages 6-9). Parents and adolescents reported
             antisocial peer involvement in early adolescence (ages
             13-16) and adolescents reported on their own delinquent
             behavior in late adolescence (ages 17 and 18). Analyses
             tested for differences across four groups (AA boys, EA boys,
             AA girls, EA girls) in construct measurement, mean levels,
             and associations among variables. Few measurement
             differences were found. Mean-level differences were found
             for social preference and delinquent behavior. AA boys were
             least accepted by peers and reported the highest level of
             delinquent behavior. EA girls were most accepted by peers
             and reported the lowest level of delinquent behavior.
             Associations among peer experiences and delinquent behavior
             were equivalent across groups, with lower levels of social
             preference and higher levels of antisocial peer involvement
             associated with more delinquent behavior. Person-centered
             analyses showed the risk associated with low social
             preference and high antisocial peer involvement to be
             similar across groups, providing further evidence of the
             generalizability of the peer relationship experiences as
             risk factors for subsequent delinquent behavior problems.

   Abstract = {Psychologists, with their long-standing tradition of
             studying mechanistic processes, can make important
             contributions to further characterizing the risk associated
             with genes identified as influencing risk for psychiatric
             disorders. We report one such effort with respect to CHRM2,
             which codes for the cholinergic muscarinic 2 receptor and
             was of interest originally for its association with alcohol
             dependence. We tested for association between CHRM2 and
             prospectively measured externalizing behavior in a
             longitudinal, community-based sample of adolescents, as well
             as for moderation of this association by parental
             monitoring. We found evidence for an interaction in which
             the association between the genotype and externalizing
             behavior was stronger in environments with lower parental
             monitoring. There was also suggestion of a crossover effect,
             in which the genotype associated with the highest levels of
             externalizing behavior under low parental monitoring had the
             lowest levels of externalizing behavior at the extreme high
             end of parental monitoring. The difficulties involved in
             distinguishing mechanisms of gene-environment interaction
             are discussed.},

             acceptance-rejection, warmth, and hostility/rejection/neglect
             (HRN) of their pre-adolescent children differ
             cross-nationally and relative to the gender of the parent
             and child in 10 communities in 9 countries, including China,
             Colombia, Italy, Jordan, Kenya, the Philippines, Sweden,
             Thailand, and the United States (N = 998 families). Mothers
             and fathers in all countries reported a high degree of
             acceptance and warmth, and a low degree of HRN, but
             countries also varied. Mothers reported greater acceptance
             of children than fathers in China, Italy, Sweden, and the
             United States, and these effects were accounted for by
             greater self-reported warmth in mothers than fathers in
             China, Italy, the Philippines, Sweden, and Thailand and less
             HRN in mothers than fathers in Sweden. Fathers reported
             greater warmth than mothers in Kenya. Mother and father
             acceptance-rejection were moderately correlated. Relative
             levels of mother and father acceptance and rejection appear
             to be country specific.},

   Abstract = {© 2014 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. Using data from two American
             and one Finnish long-term longitudinal studies, we examined
             continuity of general aggression from age 8 to physical
             aggression in early adulthood (age 21-30) and whether
             continuity of aggression differed by country, sex, and
             parent occupational status. In all samples, childhood
             aggression was assessed via peer nominations and early
             adulthood aggression via self-reports. Multi-group
             structural equation models revealed significant continuity
             in aggression in the American samples but not in the Finnish
             sample. These relations did not differ by sex but did differ
             by parent occupational status: whereas there was no
             significant continuity among American children from
             professional family-of-origin backgrounds, there was
             significant continuity among American children from
             non-professional backgrounds.},
