Peer Social Status and Children's Understanding of the Expression and Control of Positive and Negative Emotions.
Underwood, Marion K.
Merrill-Palmer Quarterly, v43 n4 p610-34 Oct 1997
Investigated effects of age, gender, and peer social status on children's understanding of emotional regulation. Found that children would less openly express negative than positive emotions. Predictions of peer reactions to emotional expressions depended on type of emotion and expression. Girls anticipated more negative peer reactions than did boys. Rejected children expected more negative reactions than did average or popular children. (Author/KB)
