dc.description.abstractWithin the literature exploring parents’ emotion socialization and meta-emotion philosophy influence on children’s emotion regulation, there is a strong need to assess paternal contributions to children’s emotion regulation. The present study addressed this limitation through its inclusion of both biological mothers and fathers. Correlational and Analysis of Variance methodologies were employed to assess the relationship between mothers’ and fathers’ emotion-related beliefs and practices, how their beliefs and practices relate to children’s emotion regulation, and the impact of parent and child gender, if any, on these interrelations. Although the results revealed minor differences between that mothers’ and fathers’ meta-emotion philosophy and its relation to their emotion socialization practices, they key finding is that mothers and fathers were highly similar across the majority of their emotion-related beliefs and practices. Serving to both substantiate several extant trends and highlight important maternal and paternal differences, this study offers unique contributions to the parenting literature.en_US
