Violent and Nonviolent Children's and Parents' Reasoning about Family and Peer Violence.
Astor, Ron Avi; Behre, William J.
Behavioral Disorders, v22 n4 p231-45 Aug 1997
A study compared moral reasoning patterns of 17 violent children (ages 10-13) with emotional and behavioral disorders and their aggressive parents to matched controls. When presented with family and peer violence scenarios, the violent children and parents referred more to rules prohibiting provocation rather than to rules prohibiting physical retribution.
