Published: 1 January 2021
Abstract: Due to Covid-19, which emerged in 2019 and had an impact all over the world, many people started working from home and schools started to provide distance education. Therefore, parents had to spend more time at home with their children. Hence, communication between parents and children at home has become even more important. This study aims to examine the communication of parents with children in the preschool period at home during the covid-19 pandemic period with their children. In this context, relational research model, one of the quantitative research methods, was used in the research. Data was gathered in Turkey in 2020, from forty-eight seventy-two-month-old children and from 146 mothers/fathers. Demographic information form and "Parent-Child Communication Assessment Tool" were used to collect data. The measurement tool was delivered to the participants in the form of an online link and they were asked to fill in, taking into account their communication with their children during the pandemic period. The data were analyzed and it was observed that the communication of the children at home with their parents differs according to their preschool education status, the number of siblings and the educational level of the father, but not according to the education level of the mother.
