MORAL SKILLS OF SCHOOLCHILDREN
Abstract:Data which would reveal the importance and level of moral skills of schoolchildren are still lacking. This research investigated children in 2 age groups and was based on the Moral Skills Inventory (Bakutyte, 1999). For the present study, this inventory was adapted after carrying out a pilot study at one middle school in Kaunas, Lithuania. Subjects were chosen by a random selection method in the Lithuanian middle schools of Kaunas, Klaipeda and Vilnius. Schoolchildren were questionned in the age groups 10 to 12 (258) and 13 to 15 (294) respectively. Our research results prove that schoolchildren aged from 13 to 15 try very hard to be sensitive towards others: and are trying much harder to console to a statiscally significant extent (p<.05) in comparison to the 10 to 12 age group.
