Özet

The purpose was to assess whether children's sex, duration of nursery school attendance, and mothers' and fathers' educational levels were associated with any statistically significant differences in perceptual, cognitive, and emotional perspective-taking skills. The relation between these skills and parents' empathetic skill was also of interest. 100 children aged 6 years (49 girls, 51 boys) and their parents participated in the research. Data were collected through a Personal Information Form, the Perspective-taking Test, and the Empathetic Skills Scale-Form B. Analysis suggested that sex, duration of nursery school attendance, and mothers' and fathers' educational levels did not affect perspective-taking skills. There was no significant correlation between the perspective-taking skills of children and the empathetic skills of their parents.
