Abstract Previous research has shown that the quality of mother-child interactions between pre-term children and their mothers tends to be poorer than that of full-term children and their mothers (Forcada-Guex, Pierrehumbert, Borghini, Moessinger & Muller-Nix, 2006). Mothers of pre-term children are less responsive and more intrusive in interactions with their children than mothers of full-term children (Forcada-Guex et al., 2006; Ionio, Lista, Mascheroni, Olivari, Confalonieri, Mastrangelo… 



Children's genotypes interact with maternal responsive care in predicting children's competence: Diathesis–stress or differential susceptibility?

Abstract We examined Genotype × Environment (G × E) interactions between children's genotypes (the serotonin transporter linked promoter region [5-HTTLPR] gene) and maternal responsive care observed

Predicting cognitive-language and social growth curves from early maternal behaviors in children at varying degrees of biological risk.

Growth modeling was used to examine the relation of early parenting behaviors with rates of change in children's cognitive-language and social response and initiating skills assessed at 6, 12, 24, and 40 months, with relations stronger for the HR versus the other two groups.

Social interaction and developmental competence of preterm and full-term infants during the first year of life.

Significant differences were found in both mothers' and preterm infants' interactive behavior across the first year of life, extending the findings of previous research that had noted differences during early infancy.

Maternal versus child risk and the development of parent–child and family relationships in five high-risk populations

Individual, dyadic, and triadic influences on the development of the family system were examined in the context of developmental risk, and father involvement had an influence on the individual level and on the triadic level, by reducing maternal distress and increasing family cohesion.

Mothers' Knowledge About Children's Play and Language Development: Short-Term Stability and Interrelations

Sixty-four mothers of children ranging in age from 6 to 58 months were asked to determine, for pairings of play and language items, which item was more advanced developmentally. This procedure was

Responsive parenting: establishing early foundations for social, communication, and independent problem-solving skills.

Increased maternal responsiveness facilitated greater growth in target infants' social, emotional, communication, and cognitive competence, supporting a causal role for responsiveness on infant development.

Does early responsive parenting have a special importance for children's development or is consistency across early childhood necessary?

Children, especially preterm children, showed faster cognitive growth when mothers were consistently responsive, and the importance of consistent responsiveness, defined by an affective-emotional construct, was evident even when a broader constellation of parenting behaviors was considered.
