Abstract

Previous studies have reported an East-West lag in preschoolers’ acquisition of ToM. This study examined potential cross-cultural differences in parental mind-mindedness to assess whether these contribute to the predicted across-country (Hong Kong and UK) contrast in pre-schoolers’ (aged 3-4-years, 120 on each site, matched for age and gender) task performance.
