Real Kids: Creating Meaning in Everyday Life

Engel argues that the "scientist in a crib" view held by many parents and teachers encourages them to expect more logical reasoning and emotional self-control from children than they possess. She provides a concise and valuable overview of what modern developmental psychologists have learned about children's developing powers of perception and capacity for reasoning, but also suggests new ways of studying children that better capture the truth about their young minds.
