Study of Social- Emotional Learning of Girls and Its Relation to Their Father’s Occupation at Early Childhood
Family income has positive, wide-reaching effects on child well-being. A mother’s unique orientations, strengths, and styles of interaction may appear to be more important in the socio-emotional lives of their children, yet many studies over the past two decades consistently demonstrated that father’s have a measurable impact on children. The current study aims at exploring the social emotional learning of girls and its relation to their father’s occupation at early childhood. The study consists of 30 girls from each age group of 4yrs, 5yrs and 6yrs. The sample was drawn from both Government and Private Schools (Play schools and Anganwadis) in Hyderabad. Early learning Observation Rating Scale by Gills, M., West, T., & Coleman, R., M , (2010) was administered. Data was analyzed using Descriptive statistics, Chi Square test for Independence and Pearson correlation coefficient. Results revealed that there is no significant relation between the social emotional learning of girl’s and their father’s occupation. A weak positive correlation exists between the social emotional learning of girl’s and their father’s occupation at early childhood.
