Parents' Reactions to Children's Negative Emotions: Relations to Children's Social Competence and Comforting Behavior.
Eisenberg, Nancy; And Others
Child Development, v67 n5 p2227-47 Oct 1996
Examined the relations of mothers' and fathers' reported emotion-related practices to parents' and teachers' reports of third- to sixth-grade children's social skills, popularity, and coping. Found that mothers' problem-focused reactions were positively associated with children's social functioning and coping, whereas maternal minimizing reactions were linked to lower levels of social competence and to high levels of avoidant coping.
