Theory of Moral UnderstandingStudent’s name Institutional affiliation Date Abstract According to Kohlberg, morality starts during the early childhood years.

In his theory, he established that there were distinct stages to moral development to establish how morally upright an individual is. He also determined that not everyone could go through all stages. In this paper, I will discuss his contributions towards the proper understanding regarding the approach used, the stages of the development and how each stage acts as a contributing factor.

The approach was unique as it adopted the element of a dilemma in moral issues stipulating how children in 10 – 16 years handled morality and values issues.
