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 about how the acceptability of a character’s actions changes based on their previous behaviour and social context

Your Impact

Information from research like ours informs everyone who interacts with children, including parents, family members, caregivers, teachers, community groups, and policymakers.
