Fostering Prosocial Behavior in Preschool Children through Teacher, Student, and Parent Involvement.
Siegel, Wendi Feldman
Ten preschool children who were not demonstrating age-appropriate, acceptable, social behavior in school were identified. A program was developed, the objectives of which were to decrease children's aggressive behavior and increase the frequency of social activity. The ten children attended three individual sessions with an adult in which they learned about prosocial solutions to everyday problems. The parents of these children were asked to complete a q-sort dealing with parental values. Parents also spent time with their children in school every week and received information on developmentally appropriate practices relating to social skills and on the priorities that other parents set for their children. Although each objective was not met for each child, positive results were generated by the project. (PCB)
