Farhadian, Mokhtar and Abdullah, Rohani and Mansor, Mariani and Redzuan, Maarof and Kumar, Vijay (2010) Parental demographics and preschool childrens theory of mind. Journal of Human Ecology, 29 (2). pp. 121-128. ISSN 0970-9274
This research investigates the difference between theory of mind (ToM) and parental demographics of preschool children. One hundred and sixty six 3.6- to- 5.6 year old children were tested on three standard false belief tasks and a verbal ability test. A significant difference was found between mother’s occupational status and ToM. However, hierarchical regression analysis showed that mother’s occupational status was a significant predictor of children’s ToM development after controlling for age and verbal ability.
