Absolutism (in moral development)

According to PIAGET, a absolutism (in moral development) concern with rules about the world, as reflected in a child's play, begins around the age of 5. At this STAGE, children have a blind faith in the rules and the ideas of right and wrong given them by their parents. Each child regards his or her parents as the ultimate arbiters of these rules which they perceive as being quite absolute, subject to no arguments, compromises or changes of any kind.
