RADAR-G3: Third Generation

Since 2013, the target and sibling participants in RADAR Young and Old who will become a parent or who have children are invited to participate with one of their children in additional data collection centering around RADAR-G3: the next generation. Four waves of data collection are currently conducted: in infancy, toddlerhood, the preschool years, and middle childhood. Participants and their partner fill out questionnaires about their child’s temperament, developmental milestones, psychosocial adjustment, and child-rearing when their 3rd generation child is 3 months, 2 years, 4.5 years and 7 years old. In addition, a home visit is conducted when the child is 2.5 years old and 7.5 years old, during which parent-child interaction tasks, and child social competence and self-regulation tasks are administered. A school assessment takes place at age 5, when teachers are asked to fill out a questionnaire about the child’s psychosocial adjustment.

Purpose To model a) three-generational continuity and discontinuity in interpersonal relationships and behavior within families, b) continuity and discontinuity between G1-G2 parenting and G2-G3 parenting, and c) test for situational and individual moderators that make or break continuity between generations.
