Parenting Creative Children: The Role and Evolution of Humor.
Nilsen, Don L. F.; Nilsen, Alleen Pace
Creative Child and Adult Quarterly, v12 n1 p53-61 Spr 1987
This paper explores child humor from the early years to adolescence. The immature child's humor is crude, rude, and hostile and gradually evolves into sophisticated, socially acceptable adult humor in the same way that the immature child in general evolves into the sophisticated adult, becoming decreasingly creative along the way.
