Foster Care, Children, Behavior, Attitudes


This article discusses the relationship between working parenting and the development of preschool children. The foster care that is implemented by parents is important in educating children, which is a description of the attitudes and behavior of parents in child development so that the child can grow and develop optimally. The development of the child is in accordance with the stage of his development because it is influenced by several factors, including stimulation and parenting style. Every child is a unique individual because of different innate factors and environment, so the achievement of children's developmental abilities is also different. The attitude of good parents shows the attitude of considering the hopes and opinions of children together when making decisions, giving awards to children for their good attitudes, appreciating children's achievements in school, expecting their children to be independent at the right age, supporting constructive and responsible attitudes, communicating rules clearly and directly, so that parents who use good parenting will produce children with good development.
