'Mind-reading' kids are more discriminating learners
from Medical News Today
To learn about the world around them, young children depend on information provided by others. But that's not always the best strategy: kids will sometimes take everything grown-ups say at face value, even if they're unreliable. New research shows that children are not as gullible as we might think — and that's especially true for those who have a good understanding of what's going on inside someone else's head. In a paper recently published in the British Journal of Developmental Psychology, researchers from Concordia University and the University of Ottawa show that even young children can be selective in whom they prefer to learn from.
