Although the care quality of institutions has an impact on child development, children’s innate characteristics like temperament may influence the susceptibility of those children to these conditions or contexts (Belsky, 1997; 2005; Ellis & Boyce, 2011). Therefore, the first aim of the current study was to compare the growth rate of gaze following and joint atte...

In the present study, it is claimed that these requirements map into three levels of complexity: 1) Plot complexity reflecting the temporal and thematic organization of the narrative in a coherent manner, 2) Evaluative complexity indicating the narrator’s p...
