Abstract: 
Both researchers and practitioners increasingly realize that socioemotional competence is important to many child developmental outcomes. In this chapter, we first describe three major components of children’s emotional competence: emotion understanding, emotion regulation, and empathy. Then, we discuss emotional competence’s (1) typical development; (2) relation with other child outcomes, such as social competence, internalizing and externalizing problems, and education, internationally and within Singapore; and (3) variance as a function of parent-related factors, including parental mental health, parents’ sensitive caregiving, parent-child attachment, parent-child conversations, parental reactions to children’s emotions, and parenting styles and practices. The importance and need for more studies on children’s emotional competence in Singapore are discussed. Toward the end of the chapter, we provide tips for parents and teachers in an effort to help them promote emotional competence in their children and students.
