DR-NTU (Data) is now internationally certified as Trusted Data Repository by CoreTrustSeal. Read more about it.
This Dataverse collects together study materials relating to investigations into the way that parents describe mental states to their children, as observed in a wordless picturebook sharing task. The open access picture book 'What a Scary Storm!' (Styles, 2020) was designed to elicit descriptions of emotions including fear, surprise, and happiness, as well as mental states related to decision making, action planning, and violation of expectation. These story elements are related to the 'Talk Together Programme of tips to enhance parent-child interactions' (Styles, 2021), which was rolled out as in a randomised controlled trial in the Talk Together study. Parent-child conversations were recorded using video conferencing tools (Woon et al., 2021), and transcribed multilingualy using the in-house BELA transcription conventions.

Current investigations:
• Parental descriptions of emotions
• Parental descriptions of mental states
