Abstract:These results reveal interesting connections between children's social relations with parents, peers, and additional members of their social world. Parenting initiation was found to be very important in the lives of young preschoolers. They also highlight the importance of neighbors, community social institutions, and models of parenting for children's social adaptation. In addition, networks size, play partners, and information were found to be significantly related to greater social adaptation. Taken together, the findings contribute to our understanding of the factors that promote children's social competence.
