CHILDREN'S BEHAVIORAL PROBLEMS (BPs) IN KINDERGARTEN: IMPACT OF TIME OF DAY AND ACTIVITY TYPE
This study examined the extent to which time of day (morning, midmorning and noon) and type of activity affect children's behavioral problems (BPs) in a Kuwaiti kindergarten. The sample consisted of 98 children identified by their teachers as having behavioral problems, based on teachers' observation. Two instruments were used: Observational Daily Card (ODC) developed by the researcher and a List of Children's Problems at Kindergarten (LCPK) (Yaseen, Ahmad, & Hamadah, 2000). Results show that aggression tends to be the major problem followed by extensive movement and stubbornness. Crying and chattiness were found to cause the least problems. In addition, midmorning was found to be the time most affecting the children's behavioral problems. Results indicate that Kuwaiti boys showed significantly more aggressive behavior than did girls, while there were no significant differences between them in other behavioral problems.
