Child psychology is one of the many branches of psychology and one of the most frequently studied specialty areas. This particular branch focuses on the mind and behavior of children from prenatal development through adolescence.

As early as a century ago, people viewed children simply as small versions of adults. When psychologists such as Jean Piaget and other experts began to suggest that the thoughts, minds and behaviors of children are fundamentally different from those of adults, the concept was considered revolutionary. Today, child psychology research focuses on diverse topics such as early childhood development, education, emotional development, cognitive development, language and gender roles.

Learn more about this fascinating area in psychology and some of the major topics of interest in this field in this brief overview of child psychology.
