Paper Highlights

  • Mothers' emotion language and scaffolding behaviors were assessed during two tasks with their 3.5-year-old children.
  • Different maternal behaviors predicted changes in children's inhibitory control over 6 months depending on whether the task contained emotion content.
  • Improvements on an inhibitory control task with emotion content were predicted by maternal emotion language, while improvements on a non-emotional task were predicted by maternal scaffolding.
