This study explored judgments and reasoning of Chinese 13- to 18-year-olds regarding making decisions involving children in peer, family, and school contexts. Findings indicated that judgments and reasoning about decision-making varied by social context and by the decision under consideration. Evaluations of procedures became more differentiated with increasing age. Findings revealed that concepts of rights, individual autonomy, and democratic norms are salient to Chinese adolescents' social reasoning. (Author/KB)
