Emotion Socialization in Adolescence: The Roles of Mothers and Fathers
Brand, Ann E.; Klimes-Dougan, Bonnie
New Directions for Child and Adolescent Development, n128 p85-100 Sum 2010
This chapter provides a review of the literature that examines the role of mothers and fathers in socializing emotion in their sons and daughters during adolescence. Within the context of this chapter, we focus on mother-father similarities, differences, and coordinated efforts in socializing the emotion of their adolescent children. Empirical data is presented that provides new evidence about the coordinated efforts of parents and its implications for the development of adolescent psychopathology. The authors emphasize the importance of both adolescent emotion capabilities and the role mothers and fathers play in supporting or deterring healthy emotional development in adolescence. (Contains 3 tables.)
