Abstract

Children's social-emotional abilities are influenced by parenting styles. Children with democratic parenting tend to be able to express their emotions appropriately and recognize the emotions of their friends. This research aims to develop the interactive games for early childhood. The method used is 4D (Diagnose, Design, Develop and Dessiminate). The results of this research, was found that 40% of children were authoritarian, 30% were with permissive parenting and 30% were with democratic parenting. Sex differences do not affect children's psycholinguistic abilities. What distinguishes only children who are well stimulated, the child's psycholiguistic abilities will develop well. Most of the children come from the lower middle class economy. Availability of digital facilities determines the level of digital literacy skills of children. Children who are accustomed to technology can easily run RPG games.
