#Stayathomeparents tweet anti-spanking beliefs but for some, their behaviors might differ

Parents can curb teen drinking and driving
Binge drinking by teenagers in their senior year of high school is a strong predictor of dangerous behaviors later in life, including driving while impaired (DWI) and riding with an impaired driver (RWI), according to a new Yale-led study. But researchers also found that what teens believe their parents know about their leisure activities and who their friends are - and whether the parents approve or disapprove of alcohol use - can have life-saving effects.

From as young as 4, children see males as more powerful than females

When It’s Story Time, Animated Books Are Better for Learning
Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University found that digital storybooks that animate upon a child's vocalization offer beneficial learning opportunities, especially for children with less developed attention regulation. "Digital platforms have exploded in popularity, and a huge proportion of the top-selling apps are educational interfaces for children," said Erik Thiessen, associate professor of Psychology at CMU's Dietrich College of Humanities and Social Sciences and senior author on the paper.

Factors such as the gambling habits of parents and social media use were also found to influence a young person's gambling activity.

Infant blood markers predict childhood mental health
A newfound link between levels of "bad" cholesterol at birth and subsequent childhood behavior could help identify and treat people who are prone to experiencing depression and other mental difficulties. Stanford researchers have shown that levels of cholesterol and fat in a newborn's blood can reliably predict that child's psychological and social health five years later.

Schools, parents and grandparents hold key to unlocking China’s obesity problem
Over 30 million Chinese children, aged between seven and 18, are overweight or obese - placing them at greater risk of an early death and this number is set to rise to 50 million by 2030, caused in part by the role grandparents play in childcare. Researchers at the Universities of Birmingham and Bristol worked with Guangzhou Centre for Disease Control and Prevention, enlisting 1,641 six-year-old children across 40 primary schools in Guangzhou to evaluate the effectiveness of the CHIRPY DRAGON programme in tackling childhood obesity.

Among transgender children, gender identity as strong as in cisgender children
Children who identify as the gender matching their sex at birth tend to gravitate toward the toys, clothing and friendships stereotypically associated with that gender.

Kids, not gender, the biggest influence on work/care policy attitudes
Young dads consider paid parental leave and childcare to be as important to their future success at work as mothers. And it's the same trend in attitudes to shared household work, according to new research. However, young men without children are least likely to consider supportive work and care policies and shared domestic work at home as important to their future.

Language and Learning Lab Helps Develop Researchers
In Erik Thiessen's Infant Language and Learning Lab , Carnegie Mellon University students are taking their first steps into research. The studies are simple and fun for the subjects. While babies sit on parents' laps, they watch a computer display and listen to words or tones. But for the researcher, the work is more intense as they watch the infants' eye movements and code the findings.
