Emotional Communication in Mother-Toddler Relationships: Evidence for Early Gender Differentiation.
Robinson, JoAnn; And Others
Merrill-Palmer Quarterly, v39 n4 p496-517 Oct 1993
Explored patterns of emotional communication in 70 mother-infant dyads, emphasizing both mother and child roles in affect regulation. Display of maternal positive and negative affects decreased with age; child affects were unchanged. Maternal sensitivity was associated with maternal matching of son's affects and daughter's creation of shared states with the mother. (MM)
