Bilge Bakır Ayğar, Mehmet Gündoğdu

Abstract


The aim of this study is to reveal the influence of parental child rearing methods on self-perceptions of gifted and ungifted students with structural equation modeling. To achieve this purpose, the study has been carried out in BİLSEM in Mersin city and in multiple elementary state schools. As a descriptive method, causal-comparative method has been used in this study. Accordingly, Demographic Information Questionnaire, Offer Self-image Questionnaire, Parenting Style Inventory have been applied to students. In statistical analysis, Mann Whitney U Test, The Kruskal Wallis H Tests, Chi-Square Test and Path Analysis Techniques have been used. As a result of the study, it is found out that self-perceptions of gifted students are higher than self-perceptions of ungifted students. In SEM (Structural Equation Modeling), parental child rearing methods related to gifted and ungifted students explain the students’ self-perceptions at a statistically significant level.
