Infants' Instrumental Use of Their Mothers to Achieve Their Goals.
Mosier, Christine E.; Rogoff, Barbara
Child Development, v65 n1 p70-79 Feb 1994
Sixty-four mother-infant pairs were videotaped during structured episodes in which the mother challenged the infant to use her instrumentally to get access to or to operate a toy. At age 6 months the infants could use their mothers instrumentally in 36% of the episodes, increasing to 67% at 9 months and 78% at 13 months. (MDM)
