Dr. Recchia’s research focuses on how children’s social and moral development occur in the context of their close relationships with parents, siblings, and friends. She is especially interested in how children make sense of and resolve conflicts with others. Ongoing projects examine the lessons that children learn from conflicts with siblings and friends, and how parents and children jointly construct understandings of such experiences in their conversations.
