Thanks for thinking about that, Martin.
What I'm really hoping is that you have time to look over the Bozhovich
(2004) that Mike appended and see if/how it hits on the important constructs
you mentioned being needed in response to Tomasello and colleagues' work.

Well, Peg, I would say that children of different ages/stages have different
understandings of the rights and responsibilities that operate in their
social world. The personal relationships within the family differ from the
impersonal roles of the school. One key aspect of development is the series
of transitions in which a child grasps with deepening sophistication this
normative dimension. Part of this will be the instructions, intentions, and
desires of other people, but this is only part of the story, imho.

something because "mommy says so" and when a teacher comes into it her life
she might add or switch to "teacher says so" and add or switch what's being
done, too. Sort of disappointing (maybe even embarrassing perhaps to the
teacher) but the child is organized by and acting "as if" they are
participants in/co-constructors of the school SSD. So there's a ground that
the figure might develop in, a petri dish type of culture for the child's
