Learning To Say "No" in Chinese.
Tardif, Twila; Wan, Ching
Early Education and Development, v12 n3 p303-23 Jul 2001
Investigated the characteristics of adult-child disputes in 10 Mandarin-speaking families in Mainland China. Found that 2-year-olds' most frequent disagreement strategies included direct refusals, protests, and silence. Adults seldom used silence or refusals but used direct positive requests, expressions of dissatisfaction, and prohibitions when disagreeing with their toddlers. (Author/KB)
