The Role of Healthy and Effective Communication Skills in the Development of Pre-School Children
Keywords:Communication Skills, Preschool Student, Internet, Social Skills
The time period that preschool children spend with their peers is very important. The way of communication they establish at such moments shows not only the developmental level of the students, but also what kind of family environment they come from. It is known that the effects of the events that preschool children are exposed to in the critical period on their communication skills. However, in this period, the extent to which the sensitivity of the parents contributes to the progress and development of the child shows itself when the preschool student comes together with his child's peers. The preschool student, who is in communication with his peers, dreams of a communication process where he can express himself easily in order to support his self-confidence. However, the student, whose dream does not come true, starts to have problems in anger control when he has difficulty in expressing himself. It has been understood that the development of children who have healthy and effective communication skills in such processes is high. In this study, it was determined that healthy and effective communication skills are very important on preschool children. In addition, in the study, it was observed that the children who were among their peers had high behavioral and cognitive abilities.
