Kochanska, Grazyna; Gross, Jami N.; Lin, Mei-Hua; Nichols, Kate E.
Child Development, v73 n2 p461-82 Mar-Apr 2002
Examined early development of guilt in 106 children observed in laboratory paradigms in which they were led to believe they had damaged valuable objects during 2 sessions at 22, 33, and 45 months. Found support for a mediational model in which fearful temperament contributed to guilt proneness, which served to inhibit children's tendency to violate rules. (Author/KB)
