Explored the role of parent and child gender in parent-child conversations about past emotional experiences. Observations of conversations between parents and children approximately 3.5 years old indicated that females conversed more overall, specifically about emotions, and used more emotional words. Both mothers and fathers used more emotional utterances when discussing sad events with daughters than with sons. (SM)
