Our current project examines the common conflict discussions of mothers and their children. We are interested in how children respond to these interactions and how their responses may vary depending on characteristics of children, mothers and the relationship. The child responses we are particularly interested in are children's social behavior and stress reactivity measured through cortisol concentration in saliva samples. Our goal is better understand everyday family interactions and how to best support children's health and well-being.
