ABSTRACT

The primary purpose of this study was to investigate the fundamental characteristical of moral emotion for the consideration of its positive implications. An open-ended questionnaire with three stories and parental control techniques was administered to 130 juvenile delinquents and 128 non-delinquents. The obtained data were analyzed through content analysis, and chi-squares were applied to examine the differences between the two groups. Results showed that significant differences between delinquent and non-delinquent juveniles were partly identified. Results also raised quesyions regarding the issues which power-assertive discipline and induction amog parental control techiniques would be associated with not only juvenile's internalizing moral emotion, values, but also with deliquency. It was confirmed that moral emotion would be an emotional paradigm with positive fundamental characteristic such as trust, respect and love. Implications and issue of further research were dicussed.
