Children's Emotions as Organizers of Their Reactions to Interadult Anger: A Functionalist Perspective.
Davies, Patrick T.; Cummings, E. Mark
Developmental Psychology, v31 n4 p677-84 Jul 1995
Sixty-four young children were induced to feel angry, sad, happy, or "just okay" before their exposure to interadult anger. Findings indicated that negative emotions increased children's distress and negative appraisals and expectations in reaction to interadult anger, whereas positive emotions reduced distress reactions and increased children's positive expectations about future interadult interactions.
