Developmental Changes in Verbal and Behavioral Sensitivity to Cues of Social Norms of Altruism.
Peterson, Lizette
Child Development, v51 n3 p830-38 Sep 1980
Kindergarten, third- and sixth-grade children indicated verbally that giving in response to dependency cues was more meritorious than giving in expectation of reciprocity. When provided an opportunity to choose between giving to dependents or those who could reciprocate, children chose to help others who could reciprocate. Further experimentation revealed ways self-interest influenced giving. (Author/RH)
