Parents' Emotion Coaching of Children


Parents' Emotion Coaching of Children and modeling of effective emotional responses are associated with children's positive emotional development. However, much of the research in this area has been with World Wide Families. This study examined parents' self-reports about their emotion regulation patterns and coaching their children about emotions, across three racial and ethnic groups to determine how well these parental behaviors predicted their children's self-reports of depressive and anxiety symptoms 18 to 24 months later. For the world wide families, a higher level of coaching about anger and sadness by mothers was linked with lower depressive symptoms in their children. A higher level of anger coaching by fathers within the Multiracial group was also associated with lower anxiety and depressive symptoms. This study supports the importance of cultural values, within racial and ethnic groups, in parenting approaches associated with children's mental health outcomes.

The Culture refers to the religions beliefs, customs, traditions, languages, ceremonies, arts, values and the way of life and people. The languages, religions, dance, music, architecture, food, and customs differ from place to place within the country. Its culture often labeled as an amalgamation of these diverse sub-cultures is spread all over the world...

Reading fosters children’s imaginations, grows their vocabulary, primes them for academic achievement and supports numerous brain-related functions like speech, logic and concentration. Reading is also an accessible and powerful way to connect children to the world, not just the world they know but the undiscovered and unknown. Books about diverse cultures and countries empower children to view the world with curiosity and understanding, enriching and broadening their minds and preparing them for a bright future in a globalized world. In this slideshow, sponsored by our friends at Barefoot Books, we celebrate reading with children around the world.
