The Child s Discovery of the Mind

But over the last twenty years, researchers have begun to challenge his methods and revise his conclusions. In 'The Child's Discovery of the Mind', Janet Wilde Astington surveys this lively area of research in developmental psychology.

Three-year old Emily greets her grandfather at the front door: “We're having a surprise party for your birthday! And it's a secret!” We may smile at incidents like these, but they illustrate the beginning of an important transition in children's lives—their development of a “theory of mind.” Emily certainly has some sense of her grandfather's feelings, but she clearly doesn't understand much about what he knows, and surprises—like secrets, tricks, and ties all depend on understanding and manipulating what others think and know. Jean Piaget investigated children's discovery of the mind in the 1920s and concluded that they had little understanding before the age of six. But over the last twenty years, researchers have begun to challenge his methods and revise his conclusions. In The Child's Discovery of the Mind, Janet Astington surveys this lively area of research in developmental psychology. Sometime between the ages of two and five, children begin to have insights into their own mental life and those of others. They begin to understand mental representation—that there is a difference between thoughts in the mind and things in the world, between thinking about eating a cookie and eating a cookie. This breakthrough reflects their emerging capacity to infer other people's thoughts, wants, feelings, and perceptions from words and actions. They come to understand why people act the way they do and can predict how they will act in the future, so that by the age of five, they are knowing participants in social interaction. Astington highlights how crucial children's discovery of the mind is in their social and intellectual development by including a chapter on autistic children, who fail to make this breakthrough. “Mind” is a cultural construct that children discover as they acquire the language and social practices of their culture, enabling them to make sense of the world. Astington provides a valuable overview of current research and of the consequences of this discovery for intellectual and social development.

This workbook is all about you. It is all about getting to meet your Inner Child. It is all about understanding what makes YOU you. Let’s look at your life. Let’s take a look at what you were like when you were a child and how those past experiences make you feel now when you remember them. Your past shaped the YOU you are today. The more you understand what happened, the more you get to know the real you. Inner child is the part of us that lets us understand why we react, feel, and make decisions. Even if you are not aware of the inner child within you, it is still there! Let yourself meet the inner child that lives deep within you. Get to know it. Make them your friend! Our inner child never goes away or disappears, no matter what age we are. It also never grows up. Your inner child is the part of your personality that still reacts and feels like a child, no matter how grown up you are. The aim of the inner child work is not to help it “grow up” or to turn it into an “inner adult”. That is never going to happen, even if you are trying hard to accomplish that. You can meet your inner child right now. You don’t have to wait, you don’t need any perfect timing, you don’t need anyone’s permission. You are the result of all the memories and experiences you have had since you were born. This shaped you into who you are now.

During the past 25 years, a great deal of research and theory has addressed the development of young children’s understanding of mental states such as knowledge, beliefs, desires, intentions, and emotions. Although developments in children’s understanding of the mind subsequent to early childhood has received less attention, in recent years a growing body of research has emerged examining understanding of psychological functioning during middle and late childhood. Combined with the literature on adolescent epistemological development, this research provides a broader picture of age-related changes in children’s understanding of the mind. Guided by the goals of describing developmental changes in children’s concepts of cognitive functioning and identifying sources of information that contribute to learning about cognition, Children’s Discovery of the Active Mind organizes empirical literature concerning the development of children’s knowledge of cognitive activities from early childhood to adolescence and presents a conceptual framework that integrates children’s introspective activities with social influences on development. Bringing together theoretical and empirical work from developmental, cognitive, and social psychology, the author argues that rather than depending upon a single source of information, developmental progress is driven by combinations of children’s conceptual knowledge of mental functioning, children’s phenomenological awareness of their own cognitive activities, and children’s social experience.
