Social behavior is voluntary behavior that benefits others including actions such as calming someone down, helping, and sharing. From an early age, social behavior skills need to be developed in early childhood as a foundation for the ability to interact with the wider environment. However, some changes in social behavior occurred in early childhood during the COVID-19 pandemic. We conducted content analysis to assess changes in early childhood social behavior during the Covid-19 pandemic. All articles found in sciencedirect (n = 13,743) and scholar (n = 165000) from 2020 to July 2021 were reviewed to identify conceptual and empirical changes that focus on changes in social behavior in early childhood. A total of 40 articles were identified and examined for themes. The results of the content analysis found that changes in early childhood social behavior occurred during this pandemic. We propose the involvement of parents, families, teachers and counselors in dealing with changes in social behavior that occur in children, this can also help early childhood in determining positive interactions with themselves in order to achieve better efficiency. We also propose that educational institutions need to provide skills to prospective teachers that can be practiced in the field so as to answer the challenges that exist during the pandemic, including lack of understanding and technological difficulties. The limitations and future directions are discussed further.
