Merrill-Palmer Quarterly, v47 n2 p300-22 Apr 2001
Examined individual differences in young children's understanding of emotion and potential correlates in the domain of family experiences. Found that individual differences in children's understanding of negative emotions were related to specific aspects of family experiences. Findings suggest complex influences of family functioning on children's understanding of the emotional aspects of social relationships. (Author/SD)
