The Influence of Child Person-Orientation on Adult Method of Eliciting Moral Behavior.
Keller, Barbara Bledsoe; Bell, Richard Q.
The possibility that child behavior could affect parental choice of socialization technique was examined. Girls, age nine, (N=3) were trained to act high and low in person-orientation, and served as confederates. Female college students (N-24), who were unaware that the children were trained, each participated in one session. Results demonstrated that experimentally induced variations did affect adult socialization techniques in a situation involving moral behavior, and that child effects cannot be dismissed as minor influences in the interactive system of adult and child.
