    Answer: social learning theory


    Albert Bandura's Social Learning Theory postulates that we learn from each other through observation, imitation, and modeling. People around them work as influential models that provide children with examples of behavior to observe and imitate.

    This theory combines behaviorist and cognitive learning theories while adding mediating processes between stimuli & responses, as well as observational learning.
