Children exhibit advanced social-cognitive skills when navigating their social worlds. However, there are contexts in which children’s group membership may pose challenges as children make social decisions. In this talk, I will present the findings of my recent research on children’s social judgments in intergroup contexts. I will discuss research focuses on how children’s social-cognitive skills, namely theory of mind, are related to their evaluations of resource allocation, challenging gender stereotypes and moral judgments in intergroup contexts. Broadly, these findings reveal the sophisticated way in which children use their social-cognitive competencies in balancing their social and moral understanding with their knowledge about approaching intergroup contexts. The implications will be discussed in terms of how parents, educators and group leaders can best support children’s social development.
