Abstract:

In a study of the influence of films showing response consequences to a model for resistance to deviation, children were assigned to one of four conditions film model rewarded for deviation model punished no consequence to model and no film. They were then tested in a temptation situation. As predicted, children under the model-rewarded and no-consequence conditions deviated relatively readily. In contrast, children in the model-punished and no-film groups deviated very little. However, when the prohibition on the deviant behavior was removed, children who had seen the model punished imitated the models behavior to as great an extent as the other children who had witnessed the models deviation.
