Wang, Qi; Leichtman, Michelle D.
Child Development, v71 n5 p1329-46 Sep-Oct 2000
Examined social, emotional, and cognitive characteristics of American and Chinese 6-year-olds' narratives. Found that, compared to American children, Chinese children showed greater orientation toward social engagement, greater concern with moral correctness, greater concern with authority, a less autonomous orientation, more expressions of emotions, and more situational details in both their stories and memories. Some gender differences were also found. (Author/KB)
