Social Class Effects on Northeastern Brazilian Children's Conceptions of Areas of Personal Choice and Social Regulation.
Nucci, Larry; And Others
Child Development, v67 n3 p1223-42 Jun 1996
Two studies examined middle- and lower-class Brazilian children's concepts of personal choice and social regulation. Found that subjects maintained a heterogeneous orientation to rules and authority which includes personal choice. Class differences indicated that hierarchical social structures affect children's sense of autonomy. However, developmental effects indicate that a domain of personal choice emerges among children across social classes. (HTH)
