This research explores the relationship between parental emotional socialization strategies and children’s social competence level. A correlational model, a quantitative research method, was employed. The sample of the study was 343 children aged 4-6 years attending private and public preschools in Ankara. Data were collected through a Demographic Information Form, Responses to Children’s Emotions Questionnaire (RCE), and Social Competence and Behavior Evaluation-30 Scale (SCBE-30). The results suggested that mothers’ neglect strategy and children’s social competence were significantly related. However, no significant relationship was found between fathers’ emotion socialization strategies and children’s social competence. Furthermore, differences between mothers’ and fathers’ emotion socialization strategies emerged according to parents and children’s sex. The results suggest that appropriate and supportive parental emotion socialization strategies might improve children’s social competence levels.
