Objective: The purpose of this research is to study the relationship between mothers’ reminiscing style and children’s narrative coherence.
Method: The samples were 31 children aged 6 (16 boys and 15 girls) from various kindergartens and their mothers. After showing an animation, a conversation between mother and her child and also a semi- structured interview between the trainer and the child was held. Qualitative data collected were analyzed using content analysis and other statistical methods.
Results: show that narrative coherence of children is augmented by elaborative styles of mothers, whereas this elaboration is similar between girls and boys. On orienting component, boys have greater coherence while on emotion and explanation components both boys and girls are the same. The other finding is that mothers’ close-ended questions are greatly correlated with children’s narrative coherence.
Conclusion: Mothers focused more on orienting aspects of the event, while paid less attention to evaluating ones, like emotions and make meanings. The other finding is that mothers’ close-ended questions are greatly correlated with child narrative coherence. Results could be applicable in the areas of parenting, communication styles of parents and their children, and preventive interventions.
