Abstract

The current study examined the relation between parents' emotion socialization beliefs and the strategies children use to cope with peer victimization. It was hypothesized that parents' beliefs about emotions would predict how their children cope with instances of school bullying. Children's coping strategies, in turn, were expected to predict their actual level of peer victimization. Children's level of peer victimization was measured via reports from children, peers, and teachers.
