Abstract
This study aims to examine maternal daily actions/responses given by mothers in facilitating child development at home. This study used a descriptive design involving 147 mothers as respondents who were determined through the non-probability method with purposive sampling technique. The results showed that mothers who were respondents in this study had shown a proper role in facilitating the needs of aspects of child development at home. There were sub-indicators that needed to be maximized, namely: (1) when the child would do something; (2) when child work in activities that are considered dangerous; (3) when child does something and fails; (4) activities available in the form of games; (5) child are not involved enough to do household chores; (6) limit the time children play, (7) availability of children's books in the form of stories or fables; (8) when child makes a mistake in doing something; (9) when children succeed in completing something and/or doing good deeds; (10) not talk much to child; and (11) lack of activity in reading books/telling fairy tales to children. The results of this study recommend the need for interventions to improve maternal knowledge and skills in supporting early childhood development at home.
