Abstract: Previous researches suggested that young children were relatively able to use base-rate information and other types of statistical information to make decisions and judgments, and this performance increased by age, Children used the same heuristics as adults and were susceptible to many judgment biases. Children’s decision-making was influenced by these factors, such as personality traits, gender, age, content domain-specific and information presentation formats. The paper introduced the self-regulation model of decision making and two-process theory to explain and predict the development of children’s decision-making from different perspective. Finally, future researches were discussed in the article.

Key words: decision-making behavior, heuristic, model of development of decision-making
