They often have a strong bond and tend to spend a lot of time together. Cliques can be found in various settings such as schools, workplaces, or social circles.

    The normal, maximum number of children cliques is 12 members. This means that in a group of children, the largest subgroup or clique that can be formed is 12 members. Any subgroup larger than 12 would not be considered a normal, maximum number of children cliques.

    Correct Answer
    D. Pre-conditional stage
    Explanation
    The first stage of children's moral development is the pre-conditional stage. This stage is characterized by a focus on obedience and avoiding punishment. Children at this stage are primarily motivated by self-interest and do not yet have a developed sense of empathy or consideration for others. They adhere to rules and expectations because they fear the consequences of not doing so. As they progress through this stage, they begin to understand that actions have consequences and develop a basic understanding of right and wrong.

    Correct Answer
    A. 6-12 years
    Explanation
    The latency stage is a stage of psychosexual development proposed by Sigmund Freud. It occurs between the ages of 6 and 12 years. During this stage, there is a decrease in sexual impulses and a focus on developing social skills, intellectual abilities, and self-confidence. Children in this stage may also engage in activities such as schoolwork, hobbies, and friendships. Therefore, the correct age group for the latency stage is 6-12 years.

    George Mead developed the theory of social behaviorism in children. Social behaviorism focuses on how social interactions and the environment shape a child's behavior and development. Mead believed that children learn through socialization and imitation of others, and that their sense of self is formed through interactions with others in society. This theory emphasizes the importance of social interaction and the role it plays in shaping a child's behavior and understanding of the world.

    Which of these stages is irrelevant when children transit into groups?

    • A.

      Maintenance

    • B.

      Remembrance

    • C.

      Socialization

    • D.

      Investigation

    Correct Answer
    C. Socialization
    Explanation
    When children transition into groups, the stage of socialization becomes irrelevant. Socialization refers to the process of learning and adopting social norms, values, and behaviors. However, when children are already transitioning into groups, they have likely already gone through the socialization process to some extent. At this stage, their focus is more on maintaining relationships, remembering previous experiences, and investigating new things within the group. Socialization has already taken place, making it irrelevant in this particular context.
