Social and Moral Development 1Social and Moral DevelopmentAED/202
Social and Moral Development 2
During a child¶s moral and social development a child have many different levels andstages. Every child develops at their own pace, but there are developmental points to watch for asthey grow. As children grow they hit many different milestones that help them become theperson that they are. We begin as infants and start to learn everything from the environment weare immersed in. We go through many different stages and another one we must developthrough is the social and morality stages.Infancy (Birth-2)During infancy children at this stage are aware that the people around them have desires,intentions, and goals which are different from their own. They look to others to see their expressions to see what their own reaction should be, as well as showing signs of distress.Early Childhood (2-6)A child in early childhood realizes that some physical behaviors which cause harm aremorally wrong, being able to feel guilt for something that was done wrong, and also shows moreconcern for themselves than others.Middle Childhood (6-10)Once they reach middle childhood the development process develops more to where thechild has a naïve sense of government and politics, feels shame for morally wrong doings, aswell as being able to strive to meet the goals of others and the goals they set for themselves.Early Adolescence (10-14)
Social and Moral Development 3
Entering into early adolescence lets the child recognize that people have multiple andconflicting emotions and motives, an interest for pleasing those around them, and being able torecognize that some rules and standard are for their benefit.Late Adolescence (14-18)Children who are now in late adolescence have learned to realize that people are aproduct of their environment and influences, conventions and rules help society run smoothly, aswell as learning how to be a stand up citizen instead of just pleasing the people around them.There are different 4 different levels which help to identify the perspective developmentin children, which was created by Robert Selman.Level 0-4The Egocentric Perspective (level0), shows that a child isn¶t able to observe theperspectives of others. In turn the child is unaware that those around them have their ownperspective.The Subjective Perspective (level1), children are able to realize that people have differentthoughts and feelings from their own.The Second Person Reciprocal (level 2), children are able to recognize that others willreact to things differently. Children are also able to recognize that people act differently whenthere is an outside influence involved.
