Title: Socialization of Emotion in Families, Schools, Culture: A story in three parts
Abstract: Socialization of children is a complex process, involving families, schools, and the culture in which families and schools are situated. What is being socialized is also complex, as are the outcomes. In this talk, I try to provide a scaffold with which to consider the socialization of emotion. Along the way I describe the importance of parents’ beliefs about emotion as a guiding influence on children’s emotion-related behaviors, teachers’ racialized beliefs with which they may be judging children’s emotion-related behaviors, and beliefs represented in two cultures that seem to differentially affect socialization of negative emotions, specifically sadness and fear.
