Abstract: One hundred and eleven mother-child dyads visited the laboratory when children were 10 to 12 years old and again two years later. Children’s self-disclosure to mothers and mothers’ accurate knowledge of effective comforting strategies were examined together in the context of maternal warmth and children’s positive coping. Maternal warmth longitudinally predicted children’s disclosure, and children’s disclosure longitudinally predicted mothers’ accurate knowledge of comforting strategies. Maternal warmth moderated the association between mothers’ accurate knowledge of comforting strategies and children’s positive coping. Specifically, maternal knowledge predicted child coping only in children of cold mothers. Implications for the socialization of coping and the role of child disclosure and parents’ accurate knowledge in parenting interventions are discussed.
