Document Summary

Displaying emotions: the development (and control) of emotional expressions. Adults can usually tell which positive emotion a baby is experiencing from facial expression but negative emotions are more difficult to discriminate based on facial cues alone. Various emotions appear at different times over the first 2 years of a child"s life; at birth, babies show interest, distress, disgust and contentment. By the end of the 2nd month, babies begin to display social smiles that are most often seen in interactions with caregivers, who are likely to be delighted at a baby"s positive reaction. Complex emotions: self-conscious or self-evaluative emotions that emerge in the second year and depend, in part, on cognitive development (ex. embarrassment, shame, guilt, pride, envy) Sometimes called self-conscious emotions because each involves damage to or enhancement of our sense of self. Later developing emotions are truly complex and have different implications for the child"s behaviour.
