National Taiwan Normal University Department of Human Development and Family Studies
The present study, 67 preschoolers as objects, explored the content elements of young children's narratives of their own transgressions, their moral judgments of the events, and the relationship between the narrative elements and the moral judgment by narrative corpus analyzing and moral judgment task measuring. The main findings were as following: (1) The main content of children's narratives were about oral or physical attack events between classmates or siblings. Above 90% of the children expressed that they were pardonable to transgress moral rules by explaining their motives. About 30% of the children mentioned emotions, anger was the main emotion of their own, and sadness was the main emotion of the victim. (2) Children's moral judgments about their own transgressions differed from their judgments about the events in the moral understanding task. (3) The statements of motives in children's narratives reflected different moral judgments, but the statements of emotions reflected no significant differences in their moral judgment. According to the findings, some suggestions about moral development research and early childhood moral education were proposed.
