Abstract: The Family Relations Test (FRT) is a semi-projective diagnostic method to determine how a child perceives the social-emotional family relations. The study described in this article presents the first standardization for kindergarten children of the German version according to FLAMIG and WORNER (1977). On the basis of a sample with a total of N = 233 children aged four to five years standards were determined in the form of median Values and quartile scores. Since group comparisons between boys and girls and especially between single children and children with siblings showed significant differences, separate standard values for the four subgroups ''boys, single children'', ''boys, sibling children'', ''girls, single children'', and ''girls, sibling children'' are given. The study results further show that the FRT version for kindergarten children is a satisfactorly reliable diagnostic instrument.
