Title: Examination of anxiety levels of 48-72 months children in terms of demographic variables of fathers and children
In this study, anxiety levels of 48-72 months old children were examined in terms of demographic variables of fathers and children. The study was conducted with 300 fathers with 48-72 months old children who were randomly selected living in Istanbul in 2022.The relational screening model was used in the study. The data of the study were collected with "Personal Information Form" and "Renewed Preschool Anxiety Scale". As a result of the research, it was found that the variables of fathers' employment status, fathers' institution satisfaction, fathers' evaluation of their marriage, duration of marriage, average time spent with their children per day, and the gender of the child did not cause any difference in children's anxiety levels. On the other hand, fathers' marital status, perceptions of their own stress and their relationships with their children are a significant determinant of children's anxiety levels.
