TURKISH FATHERS' PLAY ATTITUDE WITH CHILDREN DURING COVID-19 LOCKDOWN

Gülçin Karadeniz, Hale A. Kahyaoğlu Çakmakcı

Abstract


To investigate how the role of fathers has changed with regards to play as a result of the current Covid-19 pandemic, a number of fathers were asked to complete an online survey designed by the researchers that questioned how they felt their activities with their children had changed over the last three months. In total, 128 participants were recruited (128 males), from a wide range of socio-economic backgrounds, aged between 26-58 years old (mean age 38) with children aged between 3-6 years (mean age 4,8) with all being married for 9.5 years. The result of the analysis will be a resource for the literature.
