Assessment of Child Development in Books for Domestic Life Education during the Choson Dynasty Period
Yang Jai Shin
The purpose of this study was to investigate parental beliefs about child development in the context of Korean culture by analyzing and interpreting normative expectations of the age in disciplining children as presented in books for domestic life education of the Chosoˇn Dynasty period. The method used for this study was the historical method. The literature used for analysis was the Naihun, Gyubeomseonyoung, Sasojol, Jongbo-Salimgyoungjai, and Hahagjinam. According to the analysis, the discipline of children began from the age of three. The selection of the age of three was based on the observation that 3-year-olds begin to have an understanding of events in their world. From 3 to 10, socialization of the Chosoˇn Dynasty period gave prominance to social competency in interrelationships, especially honor of elders, modesty and sex role typing.
