Curenton, Stephanie M.; Wilson, Melvin N.
Early Education and Development, v14 n2 p199-213 Apr 2003

Results indicate that younger preschoolers, particularly young African Americans, may need help articulating emotions. Adults can support children's emotional reasoning through scaffolding. (Author)
