Parental Competence: the Impact of Parental Attitude towards the Child on the Course of the Crisis of Three Years



The formation of the pedagogical competence of parents will be successful if the families of the pupils of the preschool educational institution are working to meet the needs of parents in obtaining pedagogical knowledge and skills related to the upbringing of children in the family. However, a differentiated approach will be used in the identification of needs. This article is aimed at confirming this hypothesis. The authors used theoretical (study of pedagogical, psychological and methodological literature) and empirical (selection of diagnostic tools, diagnostic examination, survey of parents and teachers of preschool educational institutions, quantitative and qualitative data processing) methods. As a result of the work carried out, the program “Parental Competence: the impact of parental attitude towards the child on the course of the crisis of three years” was drawn up, which includes: a plan of work with teachers on a differentiated approach in communicating with the parents of pupils; a plan of work with parents to improve the level of pedagogical competence of parents raising children of primary preschool age - based on a differentiated approach. The paper presents the results of an empirical study in which 24 people participated (parents of pupils from the second junior group of the preschool educational institution).
