This study examined whether child temperamental approach reactivity moderated the association between 2 factors, parenting and child control capacities and child emotional self-regulation. Participants (N = 113) were 3- and 4-year-olds (M = 48 months, SD = 5.78) and their mothers. Emotional self-regulation was measured as observed persistence and frustration and as maternal report of compliance. Parental approach, avoidance, control, and warmth were observed during play and a frustrating wait… Expand
Children's behavioral self-regulation and conscience: Roles of child temperament, parenting, and parenting context.
TLDR
Results provide further support for temperament- and context-specific relations between different parenting qualities and children's later regulatory skills, which may inform the development of more effective temperament-based parenting interventions. Expand
Self-Regulation Mediates the Link Between Family Context and Socioemotional Competence in Turkish Preschoolers
Research Findings: In this study, we examined self-regulatory skills, namely, effortful control and executive function, in Turkish preschoolers (N = 217) and their mediating roles in the associationsExpand
Dimensions of Parenting Associated with Child Prekindergarten Emotion Regulation and Attention Control in Low-income Families.
TLDR
It is suggested that, by prekindergarten, parent stress management and reduced directiveness emerge as the primary correlates of child emotion regulation and attention control, whereas warm-sensitive parenting plays a diminished role. Expand
Maternal Socialization and Child Temperament as Predictors of Emotion Regulation in Turkish Preschoolers.
This study investigated the role of maternal socialization and temperament in Turkish preschool children's emotion regulation. Participants consisted of 145 preschoolers (79 boys, 69 girls; Mage= 62Expand
Contingencies in Mother-Child Teaching Interactions and Behavior Regulation and Dysregulation in Early Childhood.
TLDR
Examination of contingencies between maternal teaching and directives and child compliance in mother-child problem-solving interactions at age 3.5 concludes that dyadic measures are useful for understanding how parent-child interactions impact children's burgeoning regulatory abilities in early childhood.

Linking Maternal Warmth and Responsiveness to Children's Self‐regulation
The present study demonstrated that a more differentiated view of positive parenting practices is necessary in the study of children's acquisition of self‐regulation. Here, the unique contributionsExpand
Predicting preschool effortful control from toddler temperament and parenting behavior.
TLDR
Results indicated that parental behavior and emotional tone appear to be especially influential on exuberant children's effortful control development. Expand

The interactive effects of temperament and maternal parenting on toddlers' externalizing behaviours
The present study aimed to determine the potential moderating effects of temperamental traits on the relation between parenting and toddlers' externalizing behaviours. For that purpose, this studyExpand
Nature and Nurturing: Parenting in the Context of Child Temperament
TLDR
Evidence for bidirectional and interactive effects between parenting and children's characteristics of frustration, fear, self-regulation, and impulsivity was reviewed, and an overall model of children’s individual differences in response to parenting is proposed. Expand

Seventy-three mothers and their 18-month-old toddlers were observed in a series of laboratory procedures designed to assess relations among physiological arousal, frustration distress, emotionExpand
Temperament, recalled parenting styles, and self-regulation: testing the developmental postulates of self-discrepancy theory.
TLDR
2 studies testing the developmental postulates of SDT concurrently and retrospectively show that self-regulation with reference to the ideal vs. the ought domain was differentially associated with recollections of parenting styles of warmth and rejection, respectively. Expand

TLDR
Alternative models of causation were tested; a child-directed model in which maternal expressivity mediated the effects of child regulation on child outcomes did not fit the data as well. Expand

Significant gaps remain in knowledge of the pathways to disordered behavior and the role that self-regulation plays in such pathways, and suggestions are made for the ways in which future longitudinal studies might address these gaps. Expand
Mutually responsive orientation between mothers and their young children: implications for early socialization.
TLDR
In the dyads high on the mutually responsive orientation, mothers resorted to less power and children were more internalized regarding maternal values and rules, in the contemporaneous and longitudinal sense. Expand
Children's emerging regulation of conduct: restraint, compliance, and internalization from infancy to the second year.
TLDR
Previous work extended previous work into three new directions: children's committed compliance and passive noncompliance in control contexts related predictably to their motivation in mother-child teaching contexts; restraint at 8-10 months predicted higher committed compliance at 13-15 months; and focused attention was associated with contemporaneous restraint and modestly with committed compliance to maternal "dos" at 12-13 months.

Investigations of temperament at three to seven years: the Children's Behavior Questionnaire.
TLDR
The CBQ scales demonstrate adequate internal consistency, and may be used in studies requiring a highly differentiated yet integrated measure of temperament for children in this age range, and also appears to be reliably recovered in ratings of children in other cultures. Expand
