A paper by Margaret A. Fields-Olivieri and Pamela M. Cole, published in the November/December 2019 issue of Infancy, looked at the role of negative emotion in parent-toddler verbal communication. Their findings suggest parents are less responsive to toddlers’ negative emotions than to toddlers’ verbal communication, thus parents’ responses to toddlers’ emotions may encourage verbal communication and help reduce toddlers’ negative emotions. The results of their study help guide future research in the areas of language and emotional development. The Robert and Ruth Faris Child Psychology Fund in the College of the Liberal Arts helped support this research. Click here to view the paper.
