Abstracts
The aim of this study was to investigate some assumptions
related to Gottman's model of parental meta-emotions on a
sample of preschool children's parents. The study included 506
parents. The questionnaires about parental meta-emotions, dimensions
of temperament and children's internalising and externalising
problems were completed by mothers and fathers separately.
Mothers' and fathers' awareness of their own and of their
children's emotions and coaching child emotions were indirectly
related to child externalising and internalising problems through
child negative affectivity and effortful control, and awareness was
also directly related to the child's externalising and internalising
problems. The results of the models showed that mothers' and
fathers' awareness and coaching were positively related to
effortful control and negatively related to negative affectivity,
whereas only mothers' and fathers' awareness were negatively
related to externalising and internalising problems. Simultaneously,
negative affectivity was positively related to the child's externalising
and internalising problems and effortful control was negatively
related to the child's externalising and internalising problems.
With this study, we have confirmed part of the investigated
assumptions from Gottman's model that relate to the influence of
parental meta-emotion on child outcomes.

Keywords
parental meta-emotion; negative affectivity; effortful control; child externalising and internalising problems
