Nur UYGUN [1] , İshak KOZİKOĞLU [2]


The aim of this study is to examine the relationships between preschoolers’ play behaviors, social competence behaviors and their parents’ parental attitudes. In this study, correlational survey model was used. The target population of the study consists of 12.183 children attending preschool education institutions in the central districts of Van province and their parents. The sample of the study consists of 1.042 participants (521 children and their parents) determined by stratified sampling method. In this study, “Play Behaviors Scale for 36-71 Months Old Children”, “Social Competence and Behavior Assessment-30 Scale” and “Parental Attitude Scale” were used for data collection. In data analysis, Pearson Product Moment Correlation Coefficient was used. As a result of the study, it was concluded that there are significant relationships between children’s play behaviors, social competence behaviors and parents’ parental attitudes. In order for parents to adopt the right attitude, it is advisable to prepare seminars, courses and parent education programs on child growing up attitudes.
