Research Topic: "Identifying Family Factors Associated with Social-Emotional Skills"

Abstract: Many factors affect social-emotional development. This study will measure the correlation between family factors and children's social-emotional skills. The predicting factors of social-emotional skills are family demographics, parental distress, parental marital satisfaction, and marital status. One parent and a teacher of 30 to 40 three to six year old children recruited from local preschools will participate in questionnaires to assess this.
