One criticism of Kohlberg’s model is that moral re

asoning is culturespecific. Some cultures have different sets of values, some, like the
Buddhist monks, do not see justice as being an important factor in moral
development, where as Kohlberg’s model seems loosely based upon this.

Another criticism was that Kohlberg placed little value on family
processes, and called these interactions unimportant. Developmentalists
believe that parent’s moral values influence the child in developing moral
thoughts.

6. The two aspects of adolescent egocentrism are the imaginary
audience, and the personal fable. The imaginary audience refers to
the heightened self-consciousness of adolescents that is reflected
in their belief that others are as interested in them as they are
in themselves. This involves attention-getting behavior, in an
attempt to be noticed. The personal fable is the part of adolescent
egocentrism involves the adolescent’s sense of uniqueness and
invulnerability. This makes them feel like no one understands how
they feel.

7. Schools should share responsibility for moral development. There
are, and should always be rules in place to combat cheating, and to
an extent a dress code. There are smoking and drug policies, and
staff should adhere to these rules as well. It is important,
especially in high schools, that the staff represent themselves
well, and use good moral judgement when dealing with students, off
and on the property. I believe that a child isn’t going to learn
good moral behavior through schools, but they can sure learn bad
moral behavior there.
