The relationships between child’s attachment and mother-child conversation about emotions
The purpose of this study was to examine the relationships between child’s attachment and mother-child conversation about emotions. The research subject were 30 pairs of mothers and their children(13 boys and17 girls). The average age of children was 46 months old. The attachment of children was assessed by using the ‘ one-to-three-year old Attachment scale’ . Three scores were obtained by the Attachment scale (secure score, avoidant score, and ambivalent score). Mother-child discussed about child’s previous negative emotional experiences. These conversations of both the mothers and their children were coded for ‘Attribution, ‘Cause’, ‘Validations’, ‘Clarifying’, ‘Resolution’, ‘Elicitation’, and ‘Behavioral results’. In addition, the number of positive and negative emotional words used by mothers and children were computed. The results were as follow. For children, there was a positive correlation between avoidant score and child’s emotional words. Besides, there was a positive correlation between secure score and child’s ‘Cause’. For mothers, there was a positive correlation between secure score and mother’s ‘Resolve’. According to the research results, the researcher gave some suggestion to researchers, parents, and teachers.
