The study examined children's moral reasoning with specific reference to adult interventions, across age and gender. Seventy-two children from the age groups 6-8 years and 10-12 years respectively were presented with two hypothetical vignettes pertaining to Piaget's justice framework of moral reasoning. Chi-square analysis and descriptive analysis of the moral reasoning in terms of frequencies and percentages were performed. The results indicated that age was significantly related with moral judgment and reasoning in the justice vignettes. However, Piaget's contention about children's authority orientation in moral judgment did not find complete support. No gender differences were found. (Contains 4 tables and 4 figures.)
