------------- Introduction ------------- How do we teach our children about right and wrong Where do they learn compassion kindness and other important morals Are there practical ways for parents to shape their childs characters These are some of the questions we will be looking at for now to shape our kids into a better individual When people talk about moral development they are referring to their conduct and attitude towards other people in society They look to see a person follows societys norms rules and laws In terms of children we are describing their ability to distinguish right from wrong Sometimes children have people to guide them and sometimes they have to learn it by themselves by observing those around them As children they might never really know why they are not to do this or that Most of the time they are told what right or wrong without any reasons and that leaves them to think for them a reason from how they see it as Maybe it was wrong because he was a boy Or its only meant for a girl to do Or maybe it has something to do with him or her being different to other children ---------------- Literature Review ---------------- In 1984 Piaget observed that children understand concepts and reason differently at different stages Piaget stated childrens cognitive strategies which are used to solve problems reflect an interaction between the childs current developmental stage and experience in the world Piaget determined that younger children judge bad behaviour by the amount of damage caused by a persons behaviour He would tell children a story with a moral dilemma He would ask them to tell him who is naughtier a boy who accidentally broke fifteen cups or a boy who breaks one cup trying to reach a jam jar when his mother is not around Younger children attributed the naughty behaviour to the boy who broke the most
