Abstract:

We investigated the relationship between the emotional and behavioral traits and social skills of preschool children. The participants were 224 6-year-old children (115 female, 109 male). Data were collected using the Social Skills Evaluation Scale (Avcıoğlu, 2003) and the Preschool Behavioral and Emotional Rating Scale (Epstein, Synhorst, Cress, & Allen, 2009). Pearson product-moment correlation coefficients were determined. It was found that there was a positive relationship between interpersonal skills and emotional regulation, school readiness, social confidence, and family involvement. It was also found that there was a statistically significant positive relationship between verbal explanation, listening skills, and self-control and emotional regulation, school readiness, social confidence, and family involvement.
