Abstract:  As an important method of parental socialization of emotion, parents’ emotion talk with young children are of great significance for their early personality and social development. Studies showed that social context such as culture, ethnicity and socioeconomic status, child characteristics such as gender, age and attachment status, and parental qualities such as their attachment style, beliefs about parenting and mental health, have certain effect on the parent-child emotion talk. Future researchers need to further the study beyond the stages of early childhood, understand the cultural difference of parent-child emotion talk from the social-cultural adaptive perspective, strengthen the analysis of non-verbal information and parent-child mutual responsive behaviors, elaborate the different levels of research variables, and take more mediating factors into consideration.

Key words:  emotion talk, parental socialization of emotion, attachment, beliefs about parenting, emotion understanding
