Bio

To date, Prof. Braungart-Rieker’s research has examined issues surrounding social and emotional development in infancy and early childhood. In
particular, her research focuses on how children’s characteristics (e.g., gender and temperament), parenting practices, contextual factors (e.g.,
family earner status and marital satisfaction), and the fathers’ role relate to outcomes such as children’s ability to regulate their emotions, parent-child attachment security, and the development of children’s compliance and autonomy.
