Even though a great deal of mainstream developmental psychology is devoted to understanding whether and how experiences in childhood shape psychological and behavioral development later in life, little theoretical attention has been paid to why such cross-time influences should characterize human development.

Theoretically, Draper and Harpending , Belsky, Steinberg and Draper , Ellis and Chisholm have all addressed this lacuna, stimulating research on linkages between childhood experience and reproductive strategy which is summarised herein.
