About the book:

The author draws on her own detailed studies of children within their families - their disputes with mother and siblings, their empathy and co-operation, their pretend stories and questions about others, and their jokes - to show how children come to understand the social rules of the family and the feelings, intentions and relationships of others. Illustrating her case with the words of the children themselves, Judy Dunn argues that self-interest is an important force in their social development and that children's emotional experiences and their moral discourse of the family contribute crucially to their growing understanding of their social world.
