Emotional regulation is an essential skill for the well-being of the individual, being built from the child's relationship with their caregivers. The aim of this study was to examine characteristics of academic production, between 2008 and 2017, focusing on the relationship between maternal strategies of emotional regulation in children. Searches were conducted in three databases, and 36 articles were selected, after using the inclusion and exclusion criteria defined. Some categories were designed to analyze the studies. More studies were verified in North American and European countries, especially among children from zero to three years of age. In conclusion, the study showed an urgency of Brazilian investigations on the subject, which would represent an important step for the structuring of intervention programs, addressed to parents, teachers and children, appropriate to the Brazilian cultural reality.

Keywords : Emotional regulation; Emotion socialization; Emotional regulation's strategies.
