Abstract

Abstract:Cross-cultural comparison is a specific research strategy aimed at understanding the way child development may take similar or different trajectories based on the sociocultural niche in which children grow up. In this entry, some of the methodological challenges facing crosscultural child psychology are highlighted, and strategies discussed for addressing these challenges. We conclude with a presentation of areas of methodological topics relevant for advancing cross-cultural studies concerned with child development.
