Japanese and United States Preschool Children's Responses to Conflict and Distress.
Zahn-Waxler, Carolyn; And Others
Child Development, v67 n5 p2462-77 Oct 1996
Examined 30 Japanese and 30 American preschoolers' responses to hypothetical interpersonal dilemmas as a function of culture, gender, and maternal child rearing values. Found that American children showed more anger, more aggressive behavior and language, and underregulation of emotion than Japanese children. Children from both cultures appeared more similar on prosocial and avoidant patterns. (MDM)
