You're a Great Helper! (Ages 3 to 4)

University of Toronto , Department of Psychology


What factors lead children (ages 3 and 4) to behave generously in the moment and over time? In this study, we are investigating the development of children’s generosity. We are interested in the factors that lead children to behave generously, both in a specific context and over the course of development. In a 20-30 minute Zoom call, your child will watch a few short videos, talk about what they’ve seen and play some fun familiar games with us!
