Class climate moderates peer relations and emotional adjustment in children with an early history of anxious solitude: a Child X Environment model



Class climate moderates peer relations and emotional adjustment in children with an early history of anxious solitude: a Child X Environment model



Developmental Psychology 42(6): 1179-1192



Classroom emotional climate was hypothesized to moderate psychosocial adjustment in 1st grade for children with an early childhood history of anxious solitude. Participants were 1,364 children in the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) Study of Early Child Care and their mothers, child-care providers, and teachers. As anticipated, children with an early childhood history of anxious solitude were more rejected, poorly accepted (boys), and victimized (girls) by peers and demonstrated more depressive symptoms (girls) in 1st-grade classrooms with negative observed emotional climate. Results support a Child x Environment model of children's social and emotional adjustment.
