Emotion Talk in Preschool Same-Sex Friendship Groups: Fluidity over Time and Context.
Kyratzis, Amy
Early Education and Development, v12 n3 p359-92 Jul 2001
Examined "emotion talk" among 3- and 4-year-old peers in a children's center in different contexts over the academic year. Found that the boys' group evolved norms against expression of being scared with norms downgrading girl characteristics. Boys' and girls' groups showed contextual fluidity in expressing emotion and emotion talk that argue against an essentialist model of emotion socialization and development. (Author/KB)
