Biography: Ayse Ferda Ocakcı
The present investigation was planned as a descriptive study to investigate the association of some socio-demographic characteristics with mother-child relationship in mothers who have children in primary schools. The universe of the study consisted of mothers of children aged 6-12 years attending to randomly selected 2 primary and secondary schools located in Istanbul province. Mothers of all children existed in the study universe were included into the study and mothers of a total of 214 children accepting to participate into the study have constituted the study sample. Data collection was performed using Child and Mother Information Form and Parental Accoptance - Rejection Questionnaire - Mother Form. Data were collected by face to face interviews with mothers. Results demonstrated that mother’s age, educational level, number of children and monthly income have a significant negative association with rejecting behavior. Gender of the child and family type have no significant association with mother-child relationship.
