Moral Thought: Piaget’s Theory Piaget (1932) concluded that children go through two  distinct stages, separated by a transition period, in  how they think about morality. Heteronomous Morality  (1st stage; 4-7 years) Justice and rules are conceived of as unchangeable  properties of the world, removed from the control of people. Obedience to authority and immanent justice Autonomous Morality  (2nd stage; 10 years and  older) Children become aware that rules and laws are created by  people and that, in judging an action, one should consider  the actor’s intentions as well as the consequences.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
