Previous studies on fantasy play tutoring are reviewed and research reported on the effect of the adult-child contact in this situation.

Siegal, M.; Boyes, M. C. – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 1980
In this review, little support is found for Piaget's claim that with increasing peer group interaction adult authority becomes less legitimate to the child. It is suggested that the adult exerts increasing influence with age on children's moral judgment and, therefore, emphasis on peer-centered moral education may be misdirected. (Author/SJL)
