Moral Growth in Children


Moral Growth Definition

The moral and ethics by which we live our lives as adults can almost always be traced back to our childhoods. At least, to such an extent that our development and experiences as children have a strong impact on our morals and ethics as adults. Just as is the case with all other aspects of childhood development, some children develop stronger ethical and moral codes/capabilities more easily than others. Where issues are identified, child psychologists are brought in to assist. These key areas of development have a significant influence over the rest of our lives in general – hence the importance of building a detailed understanding of moral growth in children.

This exclusive tutorial has been designed for anyone looking to gain a better understanding of moral and ethical development during childhood. Study the moral growth of children from preschool to adult, along with Kohlberg's Stages of Moral Development and Freud's Theory of Psychosexual Development. Explore an introduction to the most important theories of child development, a detailed moral growth definition and how the services of the child psychologist can be both influential and beneficial.
