RESEARCH IN PROGRESS
Hussong, A. M. (PI), with Coffman, J. L., Costanzo, P. R., Cox, M., Halberstadt A. G., & Mokrova, I. (co-PIs) (2012-2014) The socialization of gratitude through parent-child interaction. Funded by the Greater Good Science Center, this research explores parental socialization of children’s gratitude and entitlement, and how these, in turn relate to children’s well-being.
Halberstadt, A. G. & Garrett-Peters, P. (PIs) (2010-2012). A dynamic multidimensional examination of parental socialization of children’s emotion understanding and social competence in middle childhood. Funded by NSF, this research explores how parenting styles and beliefs about emotion relate to mothers’ socialization of emotion, and how these, in turn, relate to multiple aspects of children’s understanding of emotion.
Halberstadt, A. G., Sibley, P. A.*, Craig, A. B.*, Thompson, J. A., & Eisenberg, A. R. (2012). Social construction of gender through language. In a study of mothers and their four-year-old children, we found frequent use of gendered language by both parents and children. Further, it appears that when parents lead with gendered language, children follow.
Halberstadt, A. G., Castro, V. L.*, Lozada, F. T.*, Craig, A. B.*, Dennis, P. A., Stelter, R. L.*, & McNeil, S. (2012). Parents‘ beliefs about emotions relate to parents‘ and children’s understanding of emotion in the family. Parents who are more skilled at recognizing their children’s feelings during conflict have children who are also more skilled at recognizing what their parents are feeling.
