Summary

This paper summarizes several studies about children and childrearing within the broader context of questions about the processes of social and physical cognition of both children and adults. A brief background section covers some reasons for being interested in parents' ideas and discusses some general models, borrowed mainly from work on cognitive development in children, that were brought to research on adults. Results from studies about changes over time in parents' ideas are discussed in relation to three areas: expectations for child behavior related to the child's age, ideas about parental influence and responsibility, and ideas about how children learn. The final sections look at practical implications of these results for those interested in changing parents' ideas in intervention programs and concerned with the theoretical implications for research on models of cognitive development. Among the latter are (1) possible minimization of reported differences between children's and adults' thought when topics of interest throughout life are assessed; (2) modification of the traditional Piagetian model of children's cognition; and (3) an alternative approach to conceptualizing separate social and physical domains of knowledge, which emphasizes the importance of the amount of received and negotiated knowledge, the availability of information, motives for acquiring information, and affect for both domains.
