This study aimed to determine educational/academic and some social behaviors of elementary school students according to their parents’ views during coronavirus pandemic days when they were under lockdown and were attending distance education. The study used a descriptive analysis methodology, which is one of the survey models, and the study group consisted of 74 parents who had children going to public elementary schools in 19 provinces of Turkey and who participated in the study voluntarily. A questionnaire developed by the researchers was used as a data collection tool in the study. As a result, the study found that the duration of the distance education was inadequate, many students exhibited behavioral and adaptation problems including getting furious/getting angry quickly/irritation, and aggression, mobile games were the most preferred pastime at home, half of the students did not design any materials, and that they did not develop any skills at all during this period. On the other hand, positive behavioral changes such as helping with housework and taking responsibility were observed in nearly half of the students.
