    Abstract

    The present study investigated five to six year old children’s ability to regulate negative and positive emotions in relation to psychosocial problem behavior (N = 53). It was explored, whether mothers’ supportive and nonsupportive strategies of emotion socialization influence children’s problem behavior by shaping their emotion regulation ability. Mothers reported on children’s emotion regulation and internalizing and externalizing problem behavior via questionnaire, and were interviewed about their preferences for socialization strategies in response to children’s expression of negative affect. Results showed that children with more adaptive expression of adequate positive emotions had less internalizing behavior problems. When children showed more control of inadequate negative emotions, children were less internalizing as well as externalizing in their behavior. Furthermore, results indicated indirect relations of mothers’ socialization strategies with children’s problem behavior. Control of inadequate negative emotions mediated the link between non-supportive strategies on externalizing problem behavior. Results suggest that emotion regulatory processes should be part of interventions to reduce the development of problematic behavior in young children. Parents should be trained in dealing with children’s emotions in a constructive way.
