The Development of Childrens' Knowledge of Self-Control by Walter Mischel( Book )
1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
This paper describes a program of research into children's understanding of psychological principles underlying social behavior. An initial study had indicated that at about 10 years of age children knew many of the basic principles of social behavior and the rules for social control. Two strategies were developed to explore these findings in depth. In the first, an attempt was made to identify objective conditions that make self-regulation (delay of gratification and resistance to temptation) either difficult or easy. In the second, the individual's own developing understanding of effective strategies for self-regulation, such as plans, was explored. Among preschool children the ability to delay gratification was found to be enhanced when delayed rewards were not in view. It was further found that the effect of the presence or absence of rewards could be overcome by changing how the child ideationally represented those rewards during the delay period. In experimental situations, children's spontaneous delay strategies showed a clear developmental progression in knowledge of effective delay rules. It is noted that the same progression has been found in explorations of self-control situations in everyday life. By age 10, some children seemed to have well developed ideas about the nature, organization and function of plans (including plans for self-regulation) in their own lives. (Author/RH)
Moral Behavior from a Cognitive Social Learning Viewpoint by Walter Mischel( Book )
1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
This paper deals with one view of cognitive social learning and its applications to the psychological analysis of moral competence and moral conduct. The concept of cognitive and behavioral construction competencies is explained and cognitive competencies are said to be among the very best predictors of "honesty" in conduct. Moral competence includes the ability to reason about moral dilemmas, the skill of role-taking, and the kind of empathy required to take account of long-term consequences of actions as they affect other people. Although an individual may be capable of moral conduct, his decision on whether to act morally at any given time depends on his behavior-outcome expectancies. The young child's behavior is governed primarily by expected immediate, concrete consequences for himself, but as he matures the evaluation and reinforcement of his behavior become increasingly independent of external rewards and punishments and include more temporally distant and abstract considerations and self-reactions. It is thus concluded that age-related changes in the style and content of moral reasoning and conduct reflect changes in the individual's cognitive and verbal capacities in interaction with the social learning variables salient for him at different points in the life cycle.
