MetadataShow full item record
From the very early stages, children have social needs. The early experiences of children frame their social skill evolving growth. While women in the workforce is increasing, motherhood is no more preference to be compromised to pursue career. Therefore, to support this change which is positive for the society we need to have proper environment and support for our children who are our future. The structure of child care practice of young children has been altered. However, not all of the modifications are appropriate and precisely implemented. My study is about working mothers’ perception regarding this critical factor of social skills of young children and the arrangement they provide to continue for child rearing and pursuing a career. Also, this study aims to explore the caregivers’ perception who attend to these children in non-formal settings to support the working mothers. While early childhood development emphasizes that social skill shapes a child’s character, how much awareness does our working mom and caregiver and their extended family have regarding the importance. It has been made clear from the findings that our community still lacks understanding of the importance of the social skill of young children. Absence of social support such as day care centers and professional nannies also makes it compelling for mothers to seek assistance from extended families and change their location without absolutely choosing voluntarily. The modifications in childcare if not endorsed with adequate gears for execution, then in a second it can transform beneficial changes to negativity.
