DEVELOPMENT. Moral development can be divided into three categories:
moral emotions, moral behavior, moral understanding and reasoning.
Parents have the ability to stimulate moral development through their
methods of discipline and consistency through compassion. Research shows
that using inductive discipline helps the child in internalizing the model of
moral behavior. Inductive discipline is a form of correcting behavior by
explaining the consequences of breaking the rules and showing affection
for children. Research involves parents by using survey methods with
brochure media at parenting parenting (PPO). The purpose of this study is
to promote and promote awareness of the effects of child molestation on
moral development. The results of this study proved successful in
presenting and informing about the influence of parents on moral
development in children and tips that can be used in everyday life to
improve the positive moral development of children.

Perkembangan moral dapat dibagi menjadi tiga kategori:
emosi moral, perilaku moral, pemahaman moral dan penalaran. Orang
tua memiliki kemampuan untuk menstimulasi perkembangan moral melalui metode disiplin dan konsistensi mereka melalui kasih sayang. Penelitian menunjukkan bahwa menggunakan disiplin induktif membantu anak dalam menginternalisasi model perilaku moral. Disiplin induktif adalah bentuk mengoreksi perilaku dengan menjelaskan konsekuensi dari melanggar peraturan dan menunjukan kasih sayang terhadap anak. Penelitian melibatkan orang tua dengan menggunakan metode survei dengan media brosur pada pertemuan parenting orang tua (PPO). Tujuan dari penelitian ini adalah untuk meningkatkan dan mempromosikan kesadaran akan efek dari penganiayaan anak pada perkembangan moral. Hasil penelitian ini terbukti berhasil dalam menyajikan dan menginformasikan tentang pengaruh orang tua pada perkembangan moral pada anak dan tips yang dapat digunakan dalam kehidupan sehari-hari untuk meningkatkan perkembangan moral positif anak.
