Results of a research of emotional development of children and teenagers and also designing of a sociocultural variation of model of emotional development, representative for these age categories are presented in article. It was shown that emotional development at children's and teenage age is carried out in three interconnected zones and has three components – cognitive, affective and expressive, that allowed to design aprioristic model of emotional development and empirically to prove it (N = 326). As a result of empirical justifications it is confirmed that the cognitive component integrates concepts of emotions of the person, perception and understanding of emotional information along with verbalization of the emotional phenomena; the affective component is defined by a threshold of reaction and a modality of experiences in combination with empathy of the personality; the expressive component is characterized by various forms of emotional reaction.The concept of the sociocultural standard of the experience and expression of emotions including and tools of assessment of its influence on emotional behavior of the personality is defined. Distinctions of sociocultural standards for three ethnocultural subselections having specifics of scenarios of emotional behavior are designated. Three types of the standard are allocated: stimulating expressional behavior; tabooing intensive expression of emotions; the setting flexible "floating" mode of emotional regulation proceeding from the purposes of a relevant social situation. In article results of the mediated influence of the sociocultural standard on an involuntary expression and also on updating of mechanisms of any expression of emotions at the children and teenagers belonging to different ethnocultural groups are illustrated. As a result of the statistical analysis verification of aprioristic model of emotional development (its sociocultural variation) is carried out, it is transferred to the status of well-founded model with a secondary factor.
