What is it about?

This study is the largest existing effort (59 nations and 83,423 parent reports) to document and understand between-nation differences in the social and emotional behavior of infants and young children. The results suggest that children in Collectivist nations of South America and Southern Asia expressed more negative emotions than those from Northern and Western Europe. Gender differences were relatively consistent across nations and grew stronger with increasing age.
