Early parent–child relationships and child sleep at school age

Publication date: July–September 2019Source: Journal of Applied Developmental Psychology, Volume 64Author(s): Catherine Cimon-Paquet, Émilie Tétreault, Annie BernierAbstractFew studies have investigated the associations between parent–child relationships and child sleep across distinct developmental stages using objective measures of sleep and while considering both parents. The current study aimed to investigate the longitudinal associations between the quality of parent–child interactions in toddlerhood and sleep duration and quality at early school age. The sample consisted of 88 families. The quality of mother–child and father–child interactions was assessed independently by observation when children were 18 months old. When children were 7 years old, their sleep was assessed objectively during three consecutive nights with actigraphy twice in a calendar year. Results showed that higher-quality mother–child (but not father–child) interactions predicted longer sleep duration nearly 6 years later. These findings suggest that some of the presumed influence of mother–child relationships on child sleep could be long-lasting.

This study aimed to determine the influence of various factors on, and the and the extent of adherence to prescribed post-operative pain medication (POPM) measured by participant-reported pill count (PRPC) following day case orthopaedic surgery at a private South African hospital.MethodsThis prospective, quantitative cross-sectional study involving 120 participants (51 males, 69 females), used a structured questionnaire completed through a telephonic survey, 4 days after orthopaedic surgery. Measurements included PRPC adherence (adherent vs. non-adherent), in relation to post-operative adherence behaviour (POAB), normal me...

ConclusionsOverall, our findings suggest that co-occurring symptoms (e.g., anxiety, depression) may be worthwhile targets to examine in future research aimed to extend our understanding of the mechanisms through which chronic sleep deprivation exerts deleterious effects on OCS. Extending findings to clinical populations and treatment contexts may have important implications for our understanding of the links between insomnia and OCS.

Conclusion: Quality of sleep in patients with insomnia following brain tumor resection was initially poor but improved significantly after taking hypnotic medication. Further, the hypnotic medications appeared to contribute to the amelioration of cognitive impairments and depressive moods in patients who previously underwent brain tumor resection. We thus recommend the use of hypnotics for patients with brain tumors with insomnia. PMID: 31533416 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract Host behavioural changes following infection are common and could be important determinants of host behavioural competence to transmit pathogens. Identifying potential sources of variation in sickness behaviours is therefore central to our understanding of disease transmission. Here, we test how group social aggregation and individual locomotor activity vary between different genotypes of male and female fruit flies (Drosophila melanogaster) following septic infection with Drosophila C virus (DCV). We find genetic-based variation in both locomotor activity and social aggregation, but we did not detect an ...

Several findings underlined that the electrophysiological (EEG) background of the last segment of sleep before awakenings may predict the presence/absence of dream recall (DR) in young subjects. However, little is known about the EEG correlates of DR in elderly people. Only an investigation found differences between recall and non-recall conditions during NREM sleep EEG in older adults, while—surprisingly—no EEG predictor of DR was found for what concerns REM sleep. Considering REM sleep as a privileged scenario to produce mental sleep activity related to cognitive processes, our study aimed to investigate whet...
