The aim of the descriptive cross-sectional correlation study was to investigate the relationships among perceived benefit, perceived barrier, perceived self-efficacy and behaviors promoting toddler’s growth and development of toddler caregivers. The samples were 133 toddler caregivers at Na-ngam Sub-district, Renunakhon District, Nakhonpanom Province selected by simple random sampling method. Data were collected from April to May 2018. The research instrument was a set of questionnaires on behaviors promoting toddler’s growth and development of toddler caregivers which consisted of 79 questions. The reliability was .87. The data were analyzed using descriptive statistics and the Pearson’s correlation coefficient.
Results revealed that perceived benefit was statistically significantly related to the behaviors promoting toddler’s growth and development of toddler caregivers (r = .561, p <.001). Perceived barrier was statistically significantly related to behaviors promoting toddler’s growth and development of toddler caregivers (r = - .441, p <.001). Also, perceived self-efficacy was statistically significantly related to behaviors promoting toddler’s growth and development of toddler caregivers (r = .786, p<.001).
The results of the study highlight that perceived benefit, perceive barrier, and perceived self-efficacy play a major role on behaviors promoting toddler’s growth and development of toddler caregivers. Therefore, nurses and healthcare workers should encourage caregivers to perceive their own ability to care for children, which will help toddlers to grow and have appropriate development with their age.
