THE EFFECT OF SOME MODERN FAMILY ISSUES ON THE SOCIAL SKILLS DEVELOPMENT OF PRIMARY SCHOOL PUPILS IN IJEBU ODE, OGUN STATE
This research looks at the impact of some contemporary family issues on the social skills development of primary school students in Ogun State’s Ijebu Ode local area. The study’s total population is 200 staff from selected primary schools in Ijebu ode.
The researcher collected data using questionnaires as the instrument. This study used a descriptive survey research design. The study used a total of 133 respondents who were headmasters, headmistresses, senior staffs, and junior staffs. The collected data was organized into tables and analyzed using simple percentages and frequencies.
The study’s context
Education is the fundamental mechanism for improving a nation’s population quality, and education during childhood is the foundation for the formation of human labor-force quality. Childhood education influences not only individual achievement and happiness, but also labor force quality and innovation capacity (Heckman 2011) to determine a nation’s potential for development.
Social skills allow for social adaptation, the formation and maintenance of existing social relationships, and have long- and short-term consequences in an individual’s life. As a result, the preschool years are critical for the development of social skills in children. As a result, developing social skills allows children to form positive relationships with others, aids in school readiness, and improves adaptation to the formal school setting as well as academic performance.
Children who lack social skills experience feelings of loneliness, which lead to mental and behavioral problems, poor interactions with their parents, teachers, and peers, and school maladjustment. As a result, it is necessary to investigate preschool children’s social skills and identify social deficiencies in order to design interventions aimed at improving their social skills, quality of life, and adaptation to the environment at a young age. The measurement of cooperation, assertiveness, and self-control is used to assess social skills.
The development of social skills begins at a young age and differs between men and women. It is faster in girls than in boys, for example, but Iranian studies have found no links between gender differences and the development of social skills. Furthermore, cultural background influences the display of social skills in various social settings.
In non-Western contexts, socialization occurs through adherence to parental and societal expectations; however, in industrialized societies, authoritarian status has a lower effect on the parent-child relationship. Nonetheless, a few studies have looked into social skills. As a result, there is a need to assess gender differences in social skills across cultural backgrounds.
