Young Children's Help-Seeking in Mastery-Oriented Contexts.
De Cooke, Peggy A.; Brownell, Celia A.
Merrill-Palmer Quarterly, v41 n2 p229-46 Apr 1995
Studied frequency and style of help-seeking in 18- and 24-month olds observed at free play and problem-solving. Found that younger toddlers sought less help than older toddlers; both groups sought more help during problem solving than in free play. Older toddlers increased vocal help-seeking whereas younger toddlers sought help through vocal and gestural means. (TM)
