child psychology

Charles Darwin is considered a pioneer in the study of child psychology because he A. compared animal and human behavior in infancy. B.studied children at play. C. mainained a ''baby diary'' D. kept a detailed record of his wife's pregnancies. i believe the correct answer is A. But in the book they mention that Darwin kept a ''baby biography''. I'm not sure if B is the answer.


"B. studied children at play" is also an accurate answer. Darwin's careful observations regarding the behavior of children at play helped form the basis of modern day child psychology. He keenly observed children's reactions to being watched or observed, and what motivated them to engage in certain activities or behaviors. He studied their emotions, creative development and socialization skills as well. This evidence helped demonstrate the importance of studying play in a child's psychological development.
