The Relations of High School Students’ Prosocial Moral Reasoning, Expected Parental Reactions to Prosocial Behavior, Antisocial Behavior and their Prosocial and Antisocial Behaviors
- The purpose of the present study was to examine relations among adolescents’ expected parental reactions, prosocial moral reasoning, and prosocial and antisocial behavior. To assess prosocial and antisocial behavior for high school students, three sets of scales applicable to Myanmar culture contex, namely, Prosocial Personality Battery (PSB), Expected Parental Reactions to Prosocial Behavior scale (ERPB) and Expected Parental Reactions to Antisocial Behavior scale (ERAB) were constructed. In this study, the sample group consisted of 292 high school students from Mandalay. Results predicted that expected parental reactions to antisocial behavior are related to lower levels of antisocial behaviors. Expected parental reactions to prosocial behaviors are related to higher levels of prosocial behavior. Regarding prosocial moral reasoning, significant relations were found with neither prosocial behaviors nor antisocial behaviors.
