Abstract: The present study examined relations of parental emotional expressivity, child emotionality, and child responsiveness to children’s internalizing problems in a Singaporean community sample (N = 172). These variables were selected as parent factors and child characteristics have been identified as crucial predictors of children’s adjustment. Data was obtained from a longitudinal study “Developmental Trajectories of Maladaptive Perfectionism in Middle Childhood”. The videotaped dyadic shared task was utilized to code the affect of both parent and child, and child responsiveness towards the parent. An emotion socialization model was brought in to outline the mechanisms of action of the chosen variables. Results indicated partial support of the model. Higher levels of positive affect expressed by parents predicted lower internalizing problems, specifically social phobia and panic disorder problems one year later. However, results failed to demonstrate an association between child emotionality and child responsiveness to internalizing problems. The findings suggest that parental emotional expressivity is an important parenting factor that affects children’s internalizing problems and this has implications for family intervention and prevention strategies.
