What is it about?
This study examined the associations between caregivers’ emotion regulation strategies and parenting styles, and how they contributed to the preschoolers’ emotional competence in a sociocultural context where grandparenting was prevalent. Our findings underscore the importance of caregivers employing cognitive reappraisal in emotion regulation, as well as adopting more authoritative and less authoritarian parenting behaviors in their daily interaction with children, on the development of stronger emotion regulation competence in preschoolers.
