The Development of Children's Knowledge of the Times of Future Events.
Friedman, William J.
Child Development, v71 n4 p913-32 Jul-Aug 2000
Four studies explored children's ability to differentiate future distances of events. Findings indicated that 4-year-olds failed to differentiate future distances. Five-year-olds could distinguish events occurring in coming weeks/months from those many months away. Six- through 8-year-olds made more differentiated judgments than younger children but collapsed distances of events more than few months ahead. Eight- to 10-year-olds accurately judged distances.
