Emotion Talk among Mexican-American and Anglo-American Mothers and Children from Two Social Classes.
Eisenberg, Ann R.
Merrill-Palmer Quarterly, v45 n2 p267-84 Apr 1999
This study examined ethnic, social class, and gender differences in mothers' and childrens' references to emotions. Eighty working class and middle class Anglo-American and Mexican-American mothers audiotaped conversations with their 4-year olds during car rides. Analyses confirmed the existence of many previously identified patterns of emotion talk and established differences based on social class and ethnicity. (TJQ)
