Understanding influences on children’s emotional development has been given much attention by researchers due to the connection between emotional competence and youth’s broader psychosocial adjustment. The current study aims to further explore relations between parent emotion socialization practices, parent-child relationship quality, and youth psychosocial functioning with a sample of 42 families including 7-12 year old children. These relations were analyzed based on both surveys as well as behavioral observations. Results indicated that paternal punitive emotion socialization practices were associated with lower psychosocial functioning and lower quality of parent-child-relationship.
