Constructing an understanding of mind with peers

  • Stephanie Zerwas (a1), Geetha Balaraman (a1) and Celia Brownell (a1)
Abstract

Carpendale & Lewis (C&L) stress the importance of social interaction for social understanding, but focus on the adult-child relationship. In the present commentary, we discuss the development of social understanding within early peer relationships. We argue that peer interaction stretches the limits of early social understanding, thereby providing both unique challenges and unique opportunities for constructing an understanding of others' minds.
