Relationship between the social environment and motor performance

Motor development during childhood occurs within a social environment that consists of all the social relationships a child may have. Through interactions with other people, children may improve their motor performance by observing and imitating the motor performance of others and by practicing their own motor performance. Knowledge regarding the relationship between motor performance and interaction with the social environment may be used to create situations in which motor performance can be practiced and improved, for example by facilitating the interactions with others. In this project, the relationship between motor performance and interaction with the social environment (e.g. parents, siblings, and peers) will be investigated in 6- to 9-year-old children.
