Developmental Changes and Interrelationships Among Role-Taking, Moral Judgments and Children's Sharing.
Olejnik, Anthony B.
This study investigated the interrelationships among the development of role-taking skills, moral judgments, and sharing behavior of boys and girls in K-3. A total of 160 lower middle class white children (20 boys and 20 girls from each grade) participated in the study. Data were collected on four measures: (1) sharing candy with a friend, (2) role-taking on emotional responses to pictured situations, (3) moral judgments on Piagetian dilemmas with positive or negative consequences, and (4) sharing candy with a stranger. The results indicated that (1) role-taking ability was positively correlated with the use of intentionality in making moral judgments; (2) role-taking ability was positively correlated with sharing with a friend, sharing with a stranger (only for boys), and total sharing; and (3) the use of intentionality in moral judgments was positively correlated with sharing with friends. Both age and sex differences were found. (JMB)
