Paper Highlights

  • Children's executive function (EF) was examined as a moderator of the relation between parent guidance and children's learning of a problem-solving task.
  • Elaborative guidance was associated with better performance during the joint activity, but only for children with low EF.
  • Directive guidance was associated with better independent performance for children with high EF, whereas children with low EF did worse when parents provided more directive guidance.
