1 essay q: relate 4 concepts from unit 3 and relate them to 4 concepts from unit 4 Other essay q: 4 discussion posts basically for unit 3 Four Components of Moral Behavior • Moral action depends on 4 aspects ◦ Moral sensitivity ‣ Thinking about moral considerations in a situation ◦ Moral judgement ‣ Which schema is the person using to choose how to act? ‣ Eg. Normative, personal interest, post-conventional ◦ Moral motivation ‣ Once they choose an action, is the person motivated to actually do it? Do they value morals above other things? ◦ Moral character ‣ Does the person have the courage and drive to actually carry out the action? • Ways to foster moral development ◦ Lay out expectations clearly and stick to them ◦ Help kids understand why certain rules exist ◦ Introduce kids to models of good moral behavior ◦ Show them how to reason through dilemmas by talking to them ◦ Show them different viewpoints ◦ Don't shield them entirely from disequilibrium as it helps them mature ◦ "Plus one" reasoning: use reasoning one stage above where they are right then to help them move up gradually ◦ Give praise when kids are good ◦ Inductive "parenting" infractions: help them figure out why they got in trouble for something ◦ Shame over guilt ‣ Shame is caused by expressing anger and withdrawing love, and it causes feelings of being a bad person and feeling worthless and helpless. ‣ Guilt is caused by showing disappointment and keeping high expectations, and it causes feelings of being a good person who did a bad thing, as well as the desire to fix it. Prosocial Behavior • All kids are capable of sharing, helping, comforting, and other prosocial behaviors • Altruism is doing something for someone else with no other motives ◦ Sympathy: feeling concern for someone even when you've never gone through something, outcome of empathy ◦ Empathy: emotionally matching what someone else is feeling, especially if you've gone through it yourself ◦ Wanting to act in ways consistent with your conscience • Genetics and Prosocial Behavior ◦ Not huge influence ◦ Somewhat based in temperament ◦ Much more environmentally based • Environmental Influence ◦ Family socialization ‣ Constructive and supportive discussion help kids develop Prosocial behavior and sympathy ‣ Reason when disciplining and consider other options for them and why those might have been better, as well as considering implications of their behavior for others ◦ Show them people who make good Prosocial decisions ◦ Do prosocial activities yourself ‣ Ex. Go volunteer in the community with your kids Aggression • "Behavior aimed at harming or injuring others" • Physical aggression: acts that could cause bodily injury ◦ Slows down after early childhood ◦ If it doesn't, either ‣ Reactive aggression: reacting to a situation ‣ Proactive aggression: bullying, initiating aggression just because you feel like it ◦ Relational aggressions: acts that affect personal relationships badly ‣ Calling names, spreading rumors, manipulating ◦ Most teens can control overt aggression, but instances of serious violence increase • Influences on aggression ◦ Limited genetic component ◦ Much more environmental ‣ Families • Inconsistent discipline • Harsh and cold, non-abusive, physical punishment • Abuse or violence in the home • Negative reinforcement ◦ Parents give in to screaming and demanding ◦ Kid screaming for toy in grocery store ‣ If the parent gives in, teaches them that they can get things by being aggressive ‣ Should just walk away ◦ Double reinforcement. Kid learns aggression makes progress, adult learns giving in makes crying stop ‣ Peers • Aggressive models make kids more aggressive • Antisocial friends • Antisocial peer group in general • Aggressive kids tend to form friendships with other aggressive kids ◦ How to promote prosocial behavior and confront aggressive behavior ‣ Problem-solving in social situations • Be very explicit and name it ‣ Label behaviors as inappropriate or appropriate while they're happening ‣ Plan group activities where they have to work together ‣ Expose to prosocial models • Be very careful about who ‣ Give clear expectations for behavior ‣ Seek intervention when kids or teens are being aggressive
