Question and answer
identify examples of influences on the child's effortful control you can share with the parent.
A central goal of child clinical research is to understand children’s adjustment in response to stress and adversity, [ explaining why some children develop adjustment problems and psychopathology while others emerge well adjusted even in the face of significant stress. Understanding person–by-environment interactions is critically important for child clinical research examining the emergence of
children’s social, emotional and behavioral problems in response to risk. With relevance to the emergence of adjustment problems and psychopathology, effortful control appears to be a central construct in this endeavor. Effortful control reflects an individual’s ability to act purposefully in modulating thoughts, emotions and behavior, and therefore, has broad-reaching implications for children’s adjustment. Evidence shows that effortful control is a critical predictor of a range of indicators of children’s adjustment, and it moderates the relation between contextual risk and adjustment problems. Given this, it is important to understand not only how effortful control develops in children growing up in high-risk contexts but also the family and contextual factors that shape its development. ]

User: Provide examples of influences on children’s effortful control that’s been observed in families.

Weegy: During the preadolescent period, we found strikingly few predictors of the development of effortful control, despite effortful control demonstrating significant growth and individual variability in rates of growth (Lengua, 2006). [ Sociodemographic (income, parental education, single parent status), environmental (neighborhood and home environment), family disruptions (negative life events, residential instability, family conflict, maternal depression), and parenting (acceptance, rejection, inconsistent discipline, physical punishment) risk factors were examined. Many were related to lower initial levels of effortful control in 8-12 year old children. However, none of these factors was significantly related to growth in effortful control (Lengua, 2006, 2008; Lengua et al., 2008). This highlights the need to identify factors that predict the development of effortful control in preadolescent children. ]
