Emotional regulation refers to the ways to modulate, inhibit, intensify and decrease the reactions toward emotional situations; in order to help individual in his/her environmental adjustment. This process starts at the beginning of the life and it facilitates more or less successful interaction patterns with another human beings. This depends of the parent's interaction, observation and presence. Based on this, we explore the effect of conflict or harmony between parents on the emotional reactions of 113 Mexican adults. Findings show that, for positive emotions there are more openness and expression while for negative ones, to hide and be reserved are important ways to respond.
