Abstract: The study aims to analyze cultural similarities and
differences in mothers‘ and their preschool children‘
s reactions in a disappointment paradigm.
Children‘s emotional reactions, strategies of emotion
regulation (emotion focus, distraction), and
maternal parenting behaviour were observed in
German and in Indian dyads. The results showed
significant cultural differences in the mothers‘
reactions to negative emotions of their children,
cultural and gender differences in children‘s emotional
reactions after frustration, and some culturespecific
associations among maternal and children‘s
regulatory strategies. The results are discussed with
respect to cultural conditions in the development of
social competence.
