Teen girls talk more to parents about their dating habits than do boys (5/9/2010)

Teen girls talk more to parents about their dating habits than do boysWhen it comes to talking to parents about most dating issues, teen girls tend to disclose more than boys, and both sexes generally prefer to talk to their mothers.

Copycat behavior in children is universal and may help promote human culture (5/7/2010)

A new study of Australian preschoolers and Kalahari Bushman children finds that a particular kind of imitation -- overimitation, in which a child copies everything an adult shows them, not just the steps that lead to some outcome -- appears to be a universal human activity, rather than something the children of middle-class parents pick up. The work helps shed light on how humans develop and transmit culture. ...> Full Article
