Preschoolers' reading skills benefit from 1 modest change by teachers (4/27/2012)

A small change in how teachers and parents read aloud to preschoolers may provide a big boost to their reading skills later on, a new study found. That small change involves making specific references to print in books while reading to children -- such as pointing out letters and words on the pages, showing capital letters, and showing how you read from left to right and top to bottom on the page. ...> Full Article


Depression may lead mothers to wake babies (4/26/2012)

Peers influence adolescent drinking, but not always how you might expect (4/25/2012)

Drinking during adolescence has both short- and long-term negative health consequences. Prior research has shown that peer influence is one of the most important predictors of alcohol use in adolescence. This study used a high-school chat session to examine peer influence on adolescent drinking, finding that anti-alcohol norms seemed more influential than pro-alcohol norms, and that adolescents were more influenced by their high-status than low-status peers. ...> Full Article


Adolescents can benefit from 12-step involvement (4/24/2012)

Adolescents who misuse alcohol and other drugs to the point where they need treatment must contend with costly and limited options for youth-specific care, as well as high relapse rates following treatment. Mutual-help groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous are widely available but little research has addressed their benefits for adolescents. An assessment of 12-step meetings and recommended activities has found that attendance, participation, and finding a sponsor promote greater abstinence among adolescents. ...> Full Article


Despite belief WIC improves infant health, new study finds no positive or negative impact (4/23/2012)

Scientific literature suggests WIC, a US government nutritional program, improves birth outcomes of children. The literature disregards that mothers underreport their WIC benefits while acknowledging WIC serves the very poor. Now a study that accounts for both was unable to find WIC has either a positive or negative impact on infant health, says economist and study author Manan Roy, Southern Methodist University, Dallas, reporting the findings at the Southern Economic Association Annual Meeting, Washington, D.C. ...> Full Article

Symptomatic behaviour in childhood strongly predicts psychiatric treatment as a young adult (4/19/2012)

A survey on the mental health of eight-year-old children could help identify those individuals who are highly likely to require psychiatric treatment in their teens or early adulthood. There are, however, clear differences in the predictive factors in such surveys between boys and girls, as is shown by a study conducted at the University of Helsinki. ...> Full Article


Changes in gene expression may help explain high blood pressure in pregnancy (4/18/2012)

Listen up, parents: For toddlers (and chimps), the majority rules (4/17/2012)

A study published online on April 12 in the Cell Press journal Current Biology offers some news for parents: even toddlers have a tendency to follow the crowd. That sensitivity isn't unique to humans either; chimpanzees also appear more likely to pick up habits if "everyone else is doing it." ...> Full Article


Lose body weight before gaining baby weight (4/16/2012)

A new University of Illinois study contains a warning for obese women who are planning pregnancies. Even if they eat a healthy diet when they are pregnant, their babies will develop in an unhealthy environment that places the infants at risk for future health problems. "We can see fat sequestered in the placentas of obese mothers when it should be going to the baby to support its growth," said Yuan-Xiang Pan, a U of I professor of nutrition. ...> Full Article


Out-of-hand tree nut consumption associated with better diet quality in children and adults (4/15/2012)

English makes adolescents less motivated to learn a new language (4/8/2012)

Swedish adolescents' desire to learn a foreign language besides English, which they start learning relatively early, has been declining for a long time. A new doctoral thesis from the University of Gothenburg, Sweden, shows that one factor behind this trend may be that English is used as a resource when students learn French, Spanish and German. ...> Full Article

Bilingual children switch tasks faster than speakers of a single language (4/6/2012)

Children who grow up learning to speak two languages are better at switching between tasks than are children who learn to speak only one language, according to a study funded in part by the National Institutes of Health. However, the study also found that bilinguals are slower to acquire vocabulary than are monolinguals, because bilinguals must divide their time between two languages while monolinguals focus on only one. ...> Full Article


Partner aggression in high-risk families affects parenting beginning at birth (4/5/2012)
