   Abstract = {In a sample of 405 children assessed in kindergarten through
             the seventh grade, we determined the basic developmental
             trajectories of mother-reported and teacher-reported
             externalizing and internalizing behaviors using cross-domain
             latent growth modeling techniques. We also investigated the
             effects of race, socioeconomic level, gender, and
             sociometric peer-rejection status in kindergarten on these
             trajectories. The results indicated that, on average, the
             development of these behaviors was different depending upon
             the source of the data. We found evidence of the
             codevelopment of externalizing and internalizing behaviors
             within and across reporters. In addition, we found that
             African-American children had lower levels of externalizing
             behavior in kindergarten as reported by mothers than did
             European-American children but they had greater increases in
             these behaviors when reported by teachers. Children from
             homes with lower SES levels had higher initial levels of
             externalizing behaviors and teacher-reported internalizing
             behaviors. Males showed greater increases in
             teacher-reported externalizing behavior over time than did
             the females. Rejected children had trajectories of
             mother-reported externalizing and internalizing behavior
             that began at higher levels and either remained stable or
             increased more rapidly than did the trajectories for

             Children with higher day-care amounts in each of 3 eras

   Abstract = {The purpose of this study was to evaluate the psychometric
             properties of an audio computer-assisted self-interviewing
             Web-based software application called the Social Information
             Processing Application (SIP-AP) that was designed to assess
             social information processing skills in boys in 3rd through
             5th grades. This study included a racially and ethnically
             diverse sample of 244 boys ages 8 through 12 (M = 9.4) from
             public elementary schools in 3 states. The SIP-AP includes 8
             videotaped vignettes, filmed from the first-person
             perspective, that depict common misunderstandings among
             boys. Each vignette shows a negative outcome for the victim
             and ambiguous intent on the part of the perpetrator. Boys
             responded to 16 Web-based questions representing the 5
             social information processing mechanisms, after viewing each
             vignette. Parents and teachers completed measures assessing
             boys' antisocial behavior. Confirmatory factor analyses
             revealed that a model positing the original 5 cognitive
             mechanisms fit the data well when the items representing
             prosocial cognitions were included on their own factor,
             creating a 6th factor. The internal consistencies for each
             of the 16 individual cognitions as well as for the 6
             cognitive mechanism scales were excellent. Boys with
             elevated scores on 5 of the 6 cognitive mechanisms exhibited
             more antisocial behavior than boys whose scores were not
             elevated. These findings highlight the need for further
             research on the measurement of prosocial cognitions or
             cognitive strengths in boys in addition to assessing
             cognitive deficits. Findings suggest that the SIP-AP is a
             reliable and valid tool for use in future research of social
             information processing skills in boys.},

             development in self-reported externalizing behavior, between
             12 and 22 years of age, within a community sample of 452
             genotyped individuals. A Caucasian subset (n = 378) was then
             examined to determine whether their probabilities of

             processes across a range of externalizing behaviors, and if
             affiliating with antisocial peers moderated these
             associations. Findings indicate that relative to a normative

             teenage pregnancy was investigated in longitudinal studies
             in the United States (N = 242) and New Zealand (N = 520), in
             which community samples of girls were followed prospectively
             from early in life (5 years) to approximately age 18.
             Greater exposure to father absence was strongly associated
             with elevated risk for early sexual activity and adolescent
             pregnancy. This elevated risk was either not explained (in
             the US. study) or only partly explained (in the New Zealand
             study) by familial, ecological, and personal disadvantages
             associated with father absence. After controlling for
             covariates, there was stronger and more consistent evidence
             of effects of father absence on early sexual activity and
             teenage pregnancy than on other behavioral or mental health
             problems or academic achievement. Effects of father absence
             are discussed in terms of life-course adversity,

             examine parents' reports of child physical abuse in the
             first 5 years of life as a predictor of substance use at
             ages 12, 16, and 24. Path analyses revealed that physical
             abuse in the first 5 years of life predicted subsequent
             substance use for females but not males. We found a direct
             effect of early physical abuse on girls'substance use at age
             12 and indirect effects on substance use at age 16 and age
             24 through substance use at age 12. For boys, age 12

             abuse in the first 5 years of life was unrelated to

             females, a mechanism of influence of early physical abuse on
             substance use into early adulthood appears to be through
             precocious initiation of substance use in early

   Abstract = {Children and adolescents with serious and persistent conduct
             problems often require large public expenditures.
             Successfully diverting one high risk child from unfortunate
             outcomes may result in a net savings to society of nearly $2
             million, not to mention improving the life of that child and
             his or her family. This figure highlights the potential of
             prevention, which often rests on the ability to identify
             these children at a young age. This study examined the
             ability of a short conduct-problems screening procedure to
             predict future need for mental health assistance, special
             education services, and the juvenile justice system during
             elementary school ages. The screen was based on teacher and
             parent report of child behavioral habits in kindergarten,
             and was used to identify children as either at risk or not
             at risk for behavioral problems. Service outcomes were
             derived from a service-use assessment administered to
             parents at the end of the sixth grade, while special
             education information was gathered through a survey of
             school records. Study participants (463 kindergarten
             children; 54% male, 44% African American) were from
             economically disadvantaged neighborhoods in four diverse
             communities across the United States. Results indicated
             that, while controlling for demographic background
             variables, the risk indicator strongly predicted which
             children would require services related to conduct disorder
             or behavioral/emotional problems. Additional analyses
             revealed that the dichotomous high risk indicator was nearly
             as strong as the continuous screening variable in predicting
             the service-use outcomes, and that the screening of both
             parents and teachers may not be necessary for determining
             risk status.},

             interventions intended to prevent development of
             externalizing disorders and delinquent behaviors. Using the
             Fast Track longitudinal sample of 396 children drawn from
             high-risk environments, the authors varied assumptions about
             base rates and examined effects of multiple-time-point and
             multiple-rater screening procedures. The authors also
             considered the practical import of various levels of

             and their potential costs and benefits. Additional research
             is needed to determine true costs and benefits of early
             screening. However, the results indicate that 1st grade
             single- and multiple-rater screening models effectively

   Abstract = {The primary goal of the present study was to describe the
             range, types, and quality (in terms of exposure to
             aggressive peers) of social activity settings in which young
             children typically have contact with peers. We also examined
             whether participation in these settings varied as a function
             of child sex and age, and family demographic
             characteristics. Subjects were 277 preschoolaged children.
             On the basis of detailed accounts of their mothers, activity
             setting measures were derived separately for ages 2-4 years
             (era 1) and ages 4-5 years (era 2). Each of seven activity
             settings (e.g. neighbourhood, day care, organised
             playgroups) was rated for frequency of participation and
             frequency of exposure to aggressive peers. Children had the
             greatest amount of peer contact and were exposed to
             aggressive peers most often in the neighbourhood setting. In
             contrast, children participated least frequently in
             structured playgroup settings, and these settings were least
             likely to contain aggressive peers. Children from lower SES
             and single-parent families were more likely to be involved
             in settings (especially neighbourhoods) containing
             aggressive peers. These findings suggest that one mechanism
             through which risk for behaviour problems among children in
             lower SES and single-parent families may operate is
             increased exposure to activity settings in which aggression
             occurs regularly. © 1994, Sage Publications. All rights

   Abstract = {Strong associations between conduct disorder (CD),
             antisocial personality disorder (ASPD) and substance use
             disorders (SUD) seem to reflect a general vulnerability to
             externalizing behaviors. Recent studies have characterized
             this vulnerability on a continuous scale, rather than as
             distinct categories, suggesting that the revision of the
             Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders
             (DSM-5) take into account the underlying continuum of
             externalizing behaviors. However, most of this research has
             not included measures of disorders that appear in childhood
             [e.g., attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) or
             oppositional defiant disorder (ODD)], nor has it considered
             the full range of possibilities for the latent structure of
             externalizing behaviors, particularly factor mixture models,
             which allow for a latent factor to have both continuous and
             categorical dimensions. Finally, the majority of prior
             studies have not tested multidimensional models. Using
             lifetime diagnoses of externalizing disorders from
             participants in the Fast Track Project (n = 715), we
             analyzed a series of latent variable models ranging from
             fully continuous factor models to fully categorical mixture
             models. Continuous models provided the best fit to the
             observed data and also suggested that a two-factor model of
             externalizing behavior, defined as (1) ODD+ADHD+CD and (2)
             SUD with adult antisocial behavior sharing common variance
             with both factors, was necessary to explain the covariation
             in externalizing disorders. The two-factor model of
             externalizing behavior was then replicated using a
             nationally representative sample drawn from the National
             Comorbidity Survey-Replication data (n = 5,692). These

             Carolina. One initiative provides funding to improve the
             quality of child care services at the county level for all
             children between the ages of 0 to 5, and the other provides
             funding for preschool slots for disadvantaged
             four-year-olds. Differences across counties in the timing of
             the rollout and in the magnitude of the state financial
             investments per child provide the variation in programs
             needed to estimate their effects on schooling outcomes in

             on third-grade test scores in both reading and math. These
             effects can best be explained by a combination of direct
             benefits for participants and spillover benefits for others.
             Our preferred models suggest that the combined average
             effects on test scores of investments in both programs at

   Abstract = {Short sleep duration and sleep problems increase risks of
             overweight and weight gain. Few previous studies have
             examined sleep and weight repeatedly over development. This
             study examined the associations between yearly reports of
             sleep problems and weight status from ages 5 to 11.
             Although, previous studies have shown that inter-individual
             differences moderate the effect of short sleep duration on
             weight, it is not known whether inter-individual differences
             also moderate the effect of sleep problems on weight. We
             tested how the longitudinal associations between sleep
             problems and weight status were moderated by impulsivity and
             genetic variants in DRD2 and ANKK1.Seven-year longitudinal
             study.A total of 567 children from the Child Development
             Project for the analysis with impulsivity and 363 for the
             analysis with genetic variants.Sleep problems and weight
             status were measured by mothers' reports yearly. Impulsivity
             was measured by teachers' reports yearly. Six
             single-nucleotide polymorphisms located in DRD2 and ANKK1
             were genotyped. Data were analyzed using multilevel
             modeling. Higher average levels of sleep deprivation across
             years were associated with greater increases in overweight
             (P=0.0024). Sleep problems and overweight were associated at
             both within-person across time (P<0.0001) and between-person
             levels (P<0.0001). Impulsivity and two polymorphisms,
             rs1799978 and rs4245149 in DRD2, moderated the association
             between sleep problems and overweight; the association was
             stronger in children who were more impulsive (P=0.0022), in
             G allele carriers for rs1799978 (P=0.0007) and in A allele
             carriers for rs4245149 (P=0.0002).This study provided
             incremental evidence for the influence of sleep problems on
             weight. Findings of DRD2, ANKK1 and impulsivity are novel;
             they suggest that reward sensitivity and self-regulatory
             abilities might modulate the influences of sleep on weight
             gain. The analysis of polymorphisms was restricted to
             European Americans and hence the results might not
             generalize to other populations.},

             a broad developmental time period, and in our understanding

             Development Project, an ongoing longitudinal study following
             a community sample of children beginning at age 5. Physical
             discipline before age 6 was quantified using a subset of
             questions from the Conflict Tactics Scale (Straus, 1979).

             discipline, and their interaction on externalizing behavior,

             were observed for aggression and overall externalizing
             behavior, although these did not reach statistical
             significance. Main effects of physical discipline held for
             all outcome variables, and no main effects held for
             genotype.The adverse consequences of physical discipline on
             forms of externalizing behavior are exacerbated by an

             predictive of initial levels of aggression-disruption in
             kindergarten in both boys and girls. However, boys and girls

             naturalistic observations at home with siblings, classmates
             participated in sociometric interviews, and teachers
             completed behavior ratings. Sibling interactions were coded
             using a newly-developed 39-item checklist, and proportions
             of complementary and reciprocal sibling interactions
             computed. Complementarity occurred more among dyads where
             kindergartners were with toddler or infant siblings than
             among kindergartners with older or near-age younger
             siblings. Higher levels of complementarity predicted lower
             levels of internalizing but were not related to
             externalizing problems. Kindergartners' sociometric status
             in the classroom differed as a function of sibling
             interaction patterns, with neglected and controversial
             children experiencing less complementarity/more reciprocity

             hundred-ninety-one early-starting children (69% male; 51%
             African American) were randomly assigned by matched sets of
             schools to intervention or control conditions. The 10-year
             intervention addressed parent behavior-management, child
             social cognitive skills, reading, home visiting, mentoring,
             and classroom curricula. Outcomes included psychiatric
             diagnoses after grades 3, 6, 9, and 12 for conduct disorder,
             oppositional defiant disorder, attention deficit
             hyperactivity disorder, and any externalizing disorder.
             Significant interaction effects between intervention and
             initial risk level indicated that intervention prevented the
             lifetime prevalence of all diagnoses, but only among those
             at highest initial risk, suggesting that targeted
             intervention can prevent externalizing disorders to promote
             the raising of healthy children.},

             3rd-grade boys. Twenty groups of 6 unacquainted boys met for
             five 45-min semistructured play sessions on consecutive
             days. Sociometric interviews yielded daily social preference
             scores. Boys' social behaviors were coded from video records
             into discrete categories. Dominance hierarchies were formed
             on the basis of asymmetry (receiving vs. initiating) of
             peer-directed aggression or persuasion attempts. Group-level
             results indicated that the least coherently organized groups
             were those containing younger boys and those in which
             aggression occurred at a high rate. Individual-level results
             indicated that dominance was associated with social
             preference to a greater degree among younger than older
             boys. Dominance was more highly related to leadership in
             older than younger boys. Implications of these findings are
             discussed with respect to the role of aggression in the

             problems, this study examined the hypothesis that the nature
             of a child's externalizing problems at home may be important
             in predicting the probability of and nature of school
             adjustment problems at school entry. Parent ratings were
             collected for a sample of 631 behaviorally disruptive
             children using the Child Behavior Checklist. Confirmatory

             behaviors at home. Teacher and peer nominations assessed
             school adjustment at the end of first grade. As expected
             from a developmental perspective, aggressive behaviors
             indicated more severe dysfunction and were more likely to
             generalize to the school setting than were oppositional
             behaviors. Hyperactive/inattentive behaviors at home led to
             more classroom disruption than did aggressive or

             oppositional/aggressive and hyperactive/inattentive

             reflect distinct (as well as shared) developmental processes

             peer relations, measured concurrently, on subsequent child
             aggressive-disruptive behavior during early elementary
             school: peer dislike, reciprocated friends' aggressiveness,
             and classroom levels of aggressive-disruptive behavior.
             Teachers rated child aggressive-disruptive behavior in 1st
             and 3rd grades, and peer relations were assessed during 2nd
             grade. Results indicated that heightened classroom
             aggressive-disruptive behavior levels were related to
             proximal peer relations, including an increased likelihood
             of having aggressive friends and lower levels of peer
             dislike of aggressive-disruptive children. Controlling for
             1st grade aggressive-disruptive behavior, the three 2nd
             grade peer experiences each made unique contributions to 3rd
             grade child aggressive-disruptive behavior. These findings

             the multifaceted nature of peer influence on
             aggressive-disruptive behavior in early elementary school.

             elementary school years as a function of child, family, and
             contextual factors. Pre-kindergarten family background
             measures were collected through parent questionnaires and
             interviews. Follow-up interviews with 466 parents provided
             information on children's care experiences in grades 1

             considerable continuity, whereas other arrangements (e.g.,
             school programs) changed substantially from year-to-year.
             Increases in use were found for self-care, sibling care,
             neighbor care, and activity-based care; use of day care
             decreased across years. Children living with working and/or

   Abstract = {Although some home-visiting programs have proven effective
             with the families they serve, no program has yet
             demonstrated an impact at the population level. We describe
             the Durham Connects (DC) initiative, which aims to achieve
             population impact by coalescing community agencies to serve
             early-intervention goals through a Preventive System Of Care
             and by delivering a universal, short-term, postnatal nurse
             home-visiting program. The home-visitor delivers brief
             intervention, assesses family needs in 12 domains, and
             connects the family with community resources to address
             individualized family needs. Evaluation of DC occurred
             through a population randomized controlled trial of all
             4,777 births in Durham, NC, over an 18-month period. DC was
             implemented with high penetration and high fidelity. Impact
             evaluation indicated that by age 6 months, DC infants had 18
             percent fewer emergency room visits and 80 percent fewer
             overnights in the hospital than did control families. We
             conclude that population impact is achievable if a program
             attends to challenges of community partnership, universal
             reach and assessment, rigorous evaluation, and models for
             sustaining funding.},
