Paper Highlights
  • This study examines the accuracy of parents’ beliefs about their preschoolers’ number skills, and relations to at-home number-related activity engagement.
  • Parents’ estimates of children’s number skills were positively biased, and more overestimation and less underestimation correlated with more frequent home number activities.
  • Results suggest guiding parents to understand their own children’s numerical knowledge could promote more frequent home number activity engagement.
