Theory of Mind, Material Altruism and Family Context in Preschoolers
Keskin, Burhanettin; Jones, Ithel
Journal of Research in Education, v21 n1 p126-136 Spr 2011
The relationship between theory of mind, material altruism, and family context was examined. Forty-one preschool children (16 females and 25 males) enrolled in a private school participated in the study. Results of this study showed no relationship between theory of mind and altruism. There were no significant correlations between theory of mind and family context. However, a significant correlation was found between altruism and one of the variables of family context (number of sibling a child has). Results were discussed and suggestions for future research were made.
