Educational process has the obligation to create moral thinking and social justice concepts. Morality means social politeness or socially recognized customs. According to psychologists, children up to 2 years old can’t recognize whether anything is moral or immoral. Then gradually they identify from elders by the acceptances and rejections of their behaviour. Children understand that which behaviour gets encouragement is moral and which one does not get encouragement is immoral. The elders make sure that their behaviour is modelled. Then only the children get a socially acceptable morale.
According to Kohlberg, through some arranged stages only moral development is happening in children. The intention for getting reward, to get recognition from others by avoiding their dislike, to maintain the love and respect of intimates are the base of moral development in children up to the age of 10 years.
