Keltikangas-Jarvinen, Liisa; Lindeman, Marjaana
Journal of Youth and Adolescence, v26 n4 p467-83 Aug 1997
Age and gender differences in evaluating three immoral behaviors (theft, lying, and fighting) were studied with 2,594 Finnish preadolescents, midadolescents, and late adolescents. Boys accepted all immoral acts better than girls, and acceptance of these behaviors was highest in middle adolescence. There was flexible use of different rationales for behavior in middle and late adolescence. (SLD)
