Qualitative analysis of field notes indicated that mobile phones are frequently used by caregivers during feeding interactions, and different patterns of use by parent gender and age were different. Expand
The Observed Quality of Caregiver-Child Interactions With and Without a Mobile Screen Device.
TLDR
Caregiver device use was negatively associated with adult behaviors that are key components of high-quality caregiver-child interactions that should be considered because they relate to the quality of caregivers' interactions in the context of mobile screen technologies. Expand
Maternal mobile device use during a structured parent-child interaction task.
TLDR
Mobile device use was common and associated with fewer interactions with children during a structured interaction task, particularly nonverbal interactions and during introduction of an unfamiliar food. Expand

Is Frequency of Shared Family Meals Related to the Nutritional Health of Children and Adolescents?

Children and adolescents who share family meals 3 or more times per week are more likely to be in a normal weight range and have healthier dietary and eating patterns than those who share fewer than 3 family meals together, and are less likely to engage in disordered eating. Expand
Eating Frequency and Overweight and Obesity in Children and Adolescents: A Meta-analysis
TLDR
Higher eating frequency was associated with lower body weight status in children and adolescents, mainly in boys, and clinical trials are warranted to confirm this inverse association, evaluate its clinical applicability, and support a public health recommendation. Expand
Psychological Predictors of Problem Mobile Phone Use
TLDR
This study supports community concerns about mobile phone use, identifies groups that should be targeted in any intervention campaigns, and supports extraverts and young drivers in automobile accidents. Expand
Impact of social and technological distraction on pedestrian crossing behaviour: an observational study
TLDR
The findings suggest the need for intervention studies to reduce risk of pedestrian injury and increase crossing times, with text messaging associated with the highest risk. Expand
A Comparison of the Effect of Mobile Phone Use and Alcohol Consumption on Driving Simulation Performance
TLDR
The findings of the current laboratory study suggest that very simple conversations on a mobile phone may not represent a significant driving risk (compared to legally permissible BAC levels), whereas cognitively demanding, hands-free conversation, and particularly texting represent significant risks to driving.

What role for the home learning environment and parenting in reducing the socioeconomic gradient in child development? Findings from the Millennium Cohort Study
TLDR
The results suggest that relationships between family income and markers of ECD are amenable to change and the role of home learning, family routines and psychosocial environmental factors are potentially important in closing income gaps in ECD. Expand
The importance of early parenting in at-risk families and children's social-emotional adaptation to school.
