Although numerous individual studies have attempted to link child-parent attachment and prosociality, a systematic picture of that relation requires a meta-analytic approach that considers different dimensions of prosociality and potential moderators. The current meta-analysis examined 41 studies drawn primarily from North America and Europe and pu...
Article
Two meta‐analyses were conducted (N = 10,980 child–father dyads) with 93 studies published between 1983–2020, primarily in North America and Europe, on observed parental sensitivity to children (3–180 months; 48% girls; 14% non‐White) in partnered mothers and fathers. The first meta‐analysis found higher maternal mean levels of observed sensitivity...
Article
Past meta-analyses show that both child-mother and child-father attachment insecurity are independently and jointly associated with more externalizing behaviors in children. Little is known, however, on the ways that different types of insecure attachment independently and jointly predict the development of externalizing behaviors over time. Existi...
Article
Meta‐analytic associations between observed parental sensitivity and child behavioral problems were examined (children aged 0–17 years). Studies (k = 108, N = 28,114) contained sociodemographically diverse samples, primarily from North America and Europe, reporting on parent‐child dyads (95% mothers; 54% boys). Sensitivity significantly related to...
Article
We used data from a sample of ethnically diverse first-time parents (N = 186) in the United States to examine differences between mothers’ and fathers’ challenging parenting behavior (CPB) when infants were 9 months old as well as covariates of CPB. We also examined associations between CPB and infants’ social competence and behavior problems when...
Article
This meta‐analytic study examined the associations between child‐father attachment in early childhood and children's externalizing and internalizing behavior problems. Based on 15 samples (N = 1,304 dyads), the association between child‐father attachment insecurity and externalizing behaviors was significant and moderate in magnitude (r = 0.18, 95%...
Article
As scholars move away from distinct conceptualizations of mothering and fathering (Fagan et al., 2014), scholars have developed novel observational paradigms that are adapted to mothers’ and fathers’ interactive style. For example, the Laughing Task procedure allows for the assessment of parent-child synchrony in a playful setting. However, parent-...
Article
A number of studies have examined the role of coparenting relationships on the development of children’s attachment to their mothers and fathers. However, previous research tends to interpret this link as unidirectional, thereby ignoring the possibility that, in reverse, child-parent attachment relationships could also predict the quality of the co...
Article
Several studies of sibling relationships show that different observers assess the quality of sibling relationships in different ways. Our research examines school-aged children’s assessments of sibling relationship quality and aims to address three objectives: (1) to explore the correspondence between mothers’ and fathers’ assessments; (2) to explo...
Article
This systematic review aimed to provide a narrative synthesis of associations between the early childhood (i.e., preschool and early school age) attachment classification systems and internalizing and externalizing symptoms measured from preschool age through adolescence. The review was pre-registered with PROSPERO (#CRD42017073417) and followed PR...
Article

The present paper consists of two separate studies in which the overarching aim was to examine the relationships between caregiver-child behaviours in the vaccination context (infant and preschool) and preschool attachment outcomes. It provides for the first time an examination of acute pain behaviours during early childhood and how it relates to a...
Article
Full-text available
Infants care for and are cared for by others from early in life, a fact reflected in infants' morality and attachment. According to moral core researchers, infants are born with a moral sense that allows them to care about and evaluate the actions of third parties. In attachment theory, care manifests through infants' relationships with caregivers,...
Chapter
La théorie de l’attachement (Bowlby, 1969/1982) est une théorie fondamentale dans le domaine de la psychologie de l’enfant, qui est centrée sur l’enfant et sa relation avec ses figures parentales. Plusieurs méthodes d’évaluation de l’attachement se basent sur une méthode de recherche positiviste, où les chercheurs et chercheuses infèrent l’expérien...
Article
Growing evidence points to the theoretical and statistical advantages of continuous (rather than categorical) assessments of child-caregiver attachment. The Preschool Attachment Rating Scales (PARS) is a continuous coding system to assess preschool attachment that is complementary to the categorical MacArthur Preschool Attachment Coding System (PAC...
Article
Full-text available
Given the negative relations between parental psychological control and various aspects of emerging adults' social and emotional adaptation, there is a need to determine whether similar relations exist for emerging adults' academic adjustment. The current study tested an integrative model using an interactionist approach of dyadic gender compositio...
Article
Studies show that children with a military parent are at heightened risk of the development of behavior problems. However, there is limited work examining how other factors experienced by military families may also influence behavior problems. In the current study, we recruited three types of Canadian families with a preschooler: families with a de...
Article
Although considerable research has sought to establish the influence of parent-child attachment on child socioemotional adaptation, it has primarily focused on mother-child dyads and external reports of adaptation. The current study investigates the longitudinal associations between both preschool mother-child and father-child attachment and self-r...
Chapter
This chapter examines the current literature related to attachment and parenting in the preschool years. We begin with a general summary of attachment theory including the evaluation of attachment during infancy and during the preschool years (both at the behavioral and representational level), as well as a review of the concepts of attachment diso...
Article
The Ottawa Self-Injury Inventory (OSI) is a comprehensive self-report measure of non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI). In an effort to build on past research and further validate the OSI, this study presents a confirmatory factor analysis of the OSI's subscales measuring the functions and addictive features of NSSI using a university sample. Participant...
Article
The increase in fathers’ involvement in childrearing, particularly beyond infancy, warrants research exploring factors influencing the quality of child–father attachment relationships, and the impact of these relationships on children’s social development. The current investigation explored various correlates of preschoolers’ child–father attachmen...
