“Computer games in the lives of children of senior preschool and younger school age”
1. The differences between computer games from traditional
Modern children, choosing between traditional and computer games, often prefer the latter. In terms of content, the computer games are in many respects similar to traditional, but they also have fundamental differences:
– many computer games are based on the principle of gradual complication of gaming and didactic tasks, like holding the child in the “zone of proximal development”;

Description of the method
Questionnaire “Interaction parent – child” is a “mirror” and contains two parallel forms: for parents and for children. In addition, there are two versions of the questionnaire:
Option for Teens and their parents;
Option for parents of preschool children and Junior pupils.
Thus, the questionnaire has three forms: one baby and two adults, 60 questions each.
The text of the questionnaire includes 10 scales – criteria to assess the interaction of parents with children. For each scale version of the questionnaire for adolescents have equal number of questions, except for two, which allocates the majority of researchers, and which can be considered basic in the parent-child relationship. This is the scale “autonomy-control” and “rejection-acceptance”, was composed of 10 statements, and in the rest of the scale — 5 claims. Continue reading

1. Teach your child to talk
