Abstract
  • Children’s self-regulation has been found to be an important predictor of later school success. This study examined relations between family mobility and children’s self-regulation in preschool. Using a diverse sample of 477 preschool children, results indicated that the number of moves a family made in the past five years was significantly related to lower self-regulation scores in children. The same pattern of results was found after controlling for child gender, age, and Head Start status. These results indicate that higher family mobility is associated with lower self-regulation skills in young children and document the importance of housing stability for children’s positive development.

  • description.provenance : Rejected by Sue Kunda(sue.kunda@oregonstate.edu), reason: Hi, Jennifer. Do you mind saving your .pptx to .pdf and attaching it to this submission? You can keep the .pptx and just add the .pdf. You won't lose any of your work. By the way, I was very interested to see your poster because we moved frequently (my dad was in the Air Force) when we were children but none of us had any problem self-regulating in school. That probably is due to living in a military family with five children ages 0-6 and having to sit through weekly hour-long church services. Trust me, when my parents gave you "the look" you learned to self-regulate yourself pretty quickly. :) Sue Kunda Digital Scholarship Librarian sue.kunda@oregonstate.edu on 2012-05-30T16:08:43Z (GMT)
