Mikayla Ell recently presented the biennial Society for Research in Child Development meeting, an international meeting of developmental scientists, instructors, clinicians, policy-makers, and other professionals. Mikayla’s poster presentation addressed reports of environmental control and mastery among a national sample of U.S. mothers and their older offspring (~15 to 40 year olds) over multiple years. Her poster points to some broad ways mothers’ earlier feelings of personal control may translate to parenting approaches that shape their children’s ongoing feelings of control, even long after their children move out of the home and into their new communities and roles. Mikayla is also contributing to a research manuscript based on this line of work.
