The purpose of this study was to analyze the relationship between maternal meta-emotion philosophy and mother-child reactions during their interactions.
The study sample consisted of 44 mothers and their 5-year-old children. Data were collected by a semi-structured meta-emotion philosophy interview about emotions and by observing a mother - child interaction teaching task for 15 minutes. All interviews and interaction task data were quantitatively processed.
Our analysis showed that maternal emotional regulation reduces maternal negative affects. We also found that maternal emotional coaching of the child is a factor that decreases the child's negative emotional reactions. Moreover mothers who can regulate better their own emotions have an influence on the pattern of 'maternal neutral emotion - child positive emotion', while mothers who accept the child's emotions well have influence on the 'maternal positive emotion - child positive emotion' pattern. Finally, maternal emotional acceptance, emotional regulation and emotional awareness of the child's emotion led to a reduction of the 'maternal negative emotion - child negative emotion' patterns.
These results suggest that maternal meta-emotion philosophy is a foundation for the actual mother-child interaction and is an important factor in mother-child reciprocal affect patterns.
Key Words: maternal meta-emotion philosophy, mother-child reciprocal affect reaction, task interaction
