Summary
As children begin school and other new experiences, what happens to the values, behavior, and expectations they have learned at home? Why do so many young people follow the crowd? And when does conformity become a bad thing? This program explores those questions, visiting a group of 25 seven-year-olds who are learning to cope with peer groups and situations. Children and parents are given tasks to see who conforms and who is comfortable standing out, even when personal convictions are under pressure. Subjects watch film clips of older children and are asked to copy them; clips of party scenes are also shown, eliciting opinions about what it would be like to attend. Finally, a Q&A game challenges kids to speak their minds when presented with obviously wrong answers
