Wonder Kids is a series of virtual talks on the fascinating world of child development, hosted each month.
Led by the members of the Early Development Research Group – some of the world’s leading developmental psychologists and researchers – we invite you to join the conversation on language, learning and social development!

This Fall’s series, Ask A Developmental Psychologist, will feature Q&A sessions with the directors of the EDRG. Have you ever wondered why babies behave in certain ways or how children develop essential skills? Perhaps, you’ve just been curious about what certain psychological concepts mean? This is your chance to ask some of the world’s leading experts in the field!

Join us each month with your burning questions, or just listen in on what others have to say. Either way, we can’t wait to see you at our next Wonder Kids talk!

Dr. Kiley Hamlin, Professor


Social and moral development in infants and toddlers


Humans are social creatures and a lot of our interactions with others entail being able to evaluate their actions, their mental states and their personalities. This ability or tendency to judge others on a social and moral level is not only present in adults but in children too – even those young as a few months old. In this Q&A session, Dr. Hamlin from the Centre for Infant Cognition will be answering all your questions on moral and social development in infants and toddlers.
