Social Problem Solving for Child Scale is frequently used to determine behavioral problems of children with their own word and to identify ways of conflict encountered in daily life, and interpersonal relationships in abroad. The primary purpose of this study was to adapt the Wally Child Social Problem-Solving Detective Game Test. In order to determine validity of 6 years old children (208-52% female and 192 male-48%) scale, data exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses were conducted. Exploratory factor analysis (EFA) identified two factor accounting for 46.534% of the variance. The confirmatory factor analyses results indicated that the factor structure was partially consistent with the model. Cronbach Alpha internal consistency coefficients were 0.88 for general scale, were 0.86 and 0.73 for subscales. Spearman-Brown coefficients were 0.80 for general scale, were 0.81 and 0.75 for subscales. The secondary purpose of this study was to determine whether social problem solving of children predicted preschool behavior problem, and gender and socio-cultural level variables predicted social problem solving. The results showed that whereas subscales of social problem solving of the students significantly predicted subscales of preschool behavior problem, gender and socio-cultural level did not significantly predicted social problem solving of children.
