Early Childhood Altruism: How Parents See Prosocial Behavior in Their Young Children.
Kakavoulis, Alexandros K.
Early Child Development and Care, v140 p115-26 Jan 1998
Investigated the ways 0-6 year-old children express their altruism, particularly the feelings and actions making up the altruistic behavior in this period of development, based on parent reports. Found that children behave altruistically almost from birth, with a great variety of this feeling from 2-4 years old, mostly expressed toward loved persons and with no gender differences. (JPB)
