Kids Praised for Being Smart Are More Likely to Cheat
An international team of researchers reports that when children are praised for being smart not only are they quicker to give up in the face of obstacles they are also more likely to be dishonest and cheat. Kids as young as age 3 appear to behave differently when told "You are so smart" vs "You did very well this time." The study, published in Psychological Science , is co-authored by Gail Heyman of the University of California San Diego, Kang Lee of the University of Toronto, and Lulu Chen and Li Zhao of Hangzhou Normal University in China.

Schools "teaching in ’ability’ sets despite evidence this may cause harm
Schools are rejecting the chance to teach children in "mixed-ability" classes despite evidence that the alternative - pupils being put in ability sets or streams - will have a negative effect on at least some of their charges' results, according to new research from UCL. The paper - "Factors deterring schools from mixed attainment grouping practices," written by Dr Becky Taylor, UCL Institute of Education (IOE), together with academics from Queen's University, Belfast, was presented yesterday at the British Educational Research Association's (BERA) annual conference.

Apps ‘don't affect children's language development' if parents still read stories
Apps ‘don’t affect children’s language development’ if parents still read stories
Watching television or playing with smart phone apps does not have any effect on children's language development - providing they still spend time reading, researchers have found. A study from the University of Salford and Lancaster University, published in the Journal Of Children And Media , has found that as long as parents or carers spend time reading with young children, and this time is not reduced in place of television or touchscreen devices such as iPads, children's exposure to these media should have no effect on the size of their vocabulary.

When estimating extinction risk, don't leave out the males
When estimating extinction risk, don’t leave out the males
Extinction risk for some species could be drastically underestimated because most demographic models of animal populations only analyse the number and fertility of females, dismissing male data as ‘noise'. An international team of researchers, including a PhD student and a professor from the Milner Centre for Evolution at the University of Bath, found that population growth in birds was very sensitive to the ratio of males to females in a population, called the adult sex ratio (ASR), which has previously been shown to affect mating behaviour.

Cowbird moms choosy when selecting foster parents for their young
Cowbird moms choosy when selecting foster parents for their young
CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — Brown-headed cowbirds are unconventional mothers. Rather than building nests and nurturing their chicks, they lay their eggs in the nests of other species, leaving their young ones to compete for resources with the foster parents' own hatchlings. Despite their reputation as uncaring, absentee moms, cowbird mothers are capable of making sophisticated choices among potential nests in order to give their offspring a better chance of thriving, a new study shows.

Talking to children about STEM fields boosts test scores and career interest
A new study finds parents who talk with their high schoolers about the relevance of science and math can increase competency and career interest in the fields. The findings, to be published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, show a 12 percentage point increase on the math and science ACT for students whose parents were provided with information on how to effectively convey the importance of science, technology, engineering and math.

Children are more apt to confess misdeeds if they think parents will react positively
ANN ARBOR'Even if they believe they could be punished, older kids are more likely than younger children to view confessing to a misdeed as the right thing to do. And kids of all ages who anticipate that a parent would feel happy about a child's confession'even if they might be punished for the misdeed'are more likely to come forward rather than conceal transgressions, according to a new study from the University of Michigan.
