peer victimization
Abstract:This study examined the prospective, interactive contributions of parent socialization of coping and child negative emotionality to children’s responses to peer aggression and depressive symptoms. Children (n = 289, M age = 8.00, SD = .37) and their parents completed questionnaires at two waves over a one-year period. Results revealed that active socialization of coping contributed to fewer depressive symptoms over time; specifically, secondary control engagement suggestions predicted fewer symptoms for all children, and disengagement coping suggestions predicted fewer symptoms for children with both high negative emotionality and high exposure to peer victimization. Active socialization of coping also contributed to less disengagement coping and fewer involuntary engagement responses, and these effects varied as a function of negative emotionality. Passive socialization of coping contributed to less primary control engagement coping and more disengagement coping, but only for youth with high negative emotionality. This research provides novel evidence that parents’ responses to children’s peer victimization experiences contribute to children’s adjustment over time. In addition, this research suggests that the implications of socialization of coping for children’s adjustment vary as a function of children’s temperament-based negative emotionality.
