Özet

This study was conducted in order to examine attitudes of preschool children, who have or who do not have compliance problems according to the views of teachers, towards their mothers. The study group consists of 352 children and their mothers. The children were selected from preschool institutions located in Cankaya district of Ankara province. The data of the study were collected by using Demographic Data Collection Form, Determining Compliance Issues Form, and and Parent Attitude Scale. T-test and ANOVA were used to analyze the data. Totally 128 children had a compliance problem and 224 children did not have any compliance problems according to the views of their teachers. The most common compliance problems were stubbornness, introversion, and aggression. It was determined according to views of the teachers that the authoritarian attitude scores of male children who had compliance problems were higher compared to the scores of female children. Furthermore, it was also found that mothers of 5-6 year-old children had higher authoritarian and democratic attitude scores compared to the mothers of 3-4 year-old children. According to the views of teachers, there was no significant relationship between the number of siblings and the attitudes of children who had compliance problems and who did not have compliance problems towards their mothers. It was detected that the educational status of the mothers and fathers had effects on authoritarian, overprotective, and permissive parenting attitudes. The study also presents a discussion of these findings and makes some relevant suggestions.
