Sažetak
Undesirable behaviors are obstacles for the physical development of a child and for other children in kindergarten, while desirable social skills contribute to the constructive resolution of conflicts among children and to prosocial behaviors. The objectives of the study were: to construct estimation scales of social skills and undesirable behaviors of children ; to determine the age and gender differences in the dimensions of both newly constructed measuring instruments ; to determine the correlation between the dimensions of the undesirable behaviors of children and their prosocial skills. Teachers assessed the list of characteristics for 597 boys and girls of preschool age. We constructed two measuring instrument with very satisfactory psychometric properties for the assessment of prosocial behaviors of preschool children, as well as to assess children's socially undesirable behaviors. It was shown that the behaviors that describe the passive social skills are more frequent in girls, while boys more often manifest reactive undesirable behaviors. Older children more often show active social skills and instrumental undesirable behaviors, while they less frequently exhibit reactive undesirable behaviors.
