resultsThe results demonstrated a significant relationship between parents' opinions on the shared reading process and their shared reading behaviors. As the age and education levels of the mothers increased, a significant relationship was observed between the supportive physical behaviors related to the shared reading process. The most common behavior displayed by mothers in the shared reading process was found to be "pointing to/showing the text or the visuals."
