Criticisms of Kohlberg’s theory of morality, based on subsequent research, are:
   1. Kohlberg’s characterization of children under 12 as being bound primarily by a preconventional morality based on rewards and punishments is most likely an underestimate of the moral thinking of young children.
   2. Different contexts call for different types of moral judgment, rather than individuals always using the highest type of moral reasoning achieved in dealing with all issues, as Kohlberg thought.
   3. Kohlberg’s assumption that moral reasoning leads to moral behavior proves not to be true in all cases.
   4. Kohlberg’s theory is based on judgments about fairness and justice, ignoring the fact that most moral dilemmas involve an individual deciding whether to engage in prosocial behavior when these actions might be costly to him/herself.
