Bobo Doll Experiment
This experiment was collective by Bandura. He studied children's behavior after witnessing an adult act aggressively towards a Bobo doll. There are different variations to this experiment. These findings might not apply all the time because there has been a debate over 40 years later that children can be socially influenced that could affect the growth of their personality and morality. For example: television, computer games, food additives, music and lack of role models.
