Aim The aim of the current study was to investigate the relation between positive parenting and emotion regulation in children. Furthermore, the possible influences of gender on this relation were determined. Method Data were collected among 55 families, consisting of a mother, a father and at least two children (aged 8-18). Both children and parents were assessed on different aspects of family functioning. To assess these aspects, the following questionnaires were used: Parental Practices Questionnaire [PPQ], and the Difficulties in Emotion Regulation Scale [DERS]. Results Analyses revealed an effect of reasoning and induction, but not of warmth and involvement, of parents on emotion regulation of children. These results were only found for child reports of parenting practices. Also, gender did not moderate this association. Conclusion The findings emphasize the importance of the use of induction in parenting behavior to reduce problems in emotion regulation. Future research might examine this concept further by increasing the sample size of the study
