Abstract

Objective:
The purpose of this study was to analyze the relationship between maternal meta-emotion philosophy and mother-child reactions during their interactions.
Methods:
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.
Results:
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.
Conclusion:
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
