The article is the last of a series of three concerned with studying the acquisition of social values in three-to-five year old children in an underprivileged area. Some of the children were reared under the dual influence of primary mothers and secondary nursery teachers socializing agents, and some of them were reared under the influence of primary agents only. The two groups of children were compared 1 for their internalization of the cultural values of self-reliance, cooperation and compliance, 2 for their integration among these internalized values, and 3 for their congruity between conformity and internalization with respect to each value. Intelligence, nature of cultural expectations, the childs perceptions of the relevant expectations, and the quality of maternal acceptance of the child were additional independent variables considered in the study.
