What are the different challenges for children from affluent or deprived backgrounds? 41 What does social development involve? Why is moral and social development so hard for some children? Because difficulties with moral and social development often go hand in hand, I consider these two together. However, we need to recognise two dangers. The first is always to think that the problem lies with the child or the family. The previous section shows that social expectations are far from obvious. How the school, or the teacher, responds to a child’s uncertainty provides valuable support, sometimes with clear, non-negotiable expectations, sometimes with responses to be tailored to individual need.

Children (or adults) focus on physical and emotional needs, rather than the higher, social levels, unless the former are met. We all want love and approval to provide us with the security to meet our emotional needs. To become part of a wider group requires a consistency of physical and emotional care. However, intense emotional experiences may make even secure adults revert to meeting more basic needs. Think how seeing a group of loud youths at night may bring back our primal fears of being attacked; or how people’s orderly behaviour changes when others threaten them, queuing for a ticket or at the sales.
