Researchers


What do children (ages 6 to 8) think about people’s intentions?

University of Toronto , Department of Psychology


In our 20-minute study, your child will listen to some stories and tell us what they think about the characters. We are interested in learning how the intent of a character’s behaviour changes how children think about the morality of their actions.

Your Impact

By participating in this study, you help us better understand how children understand and navigate the complex social world. Information from research like ours informs everyone who interacts with children, including parents, family members, caregivers, teachers, community groups, and policymakers.
