Mi Kyung Choi
Abstract
The main purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between mothers` parenting, children`s self-esteem, and stress. The participants were composed of 320 elementary school 5th graders (161 boys and 159 girls) from the Seoul area. They completed questionnaires on mothers` parenting, children`s self-esteem, and stress. The data were analyzed by means of Pearson`s correlation coefficients and regressions. It was observed that maternal warmth was negatively correlated with children`s stress in both boys and girls. Children`s self-esteem was also negatively correlated with children`s stress in both boys and girls. in addition maternal warmth was positively correlated with self-esteem in both boys and girls. It was futher found that self-esteem tended to play a partially mediating role between maternal warmth and children`s stress only in boys. Self-esteem tended to play a perfectly mediating role between maternal permissiveness/nonintervention and children`s stress only in girls. These results indicated that children`s self-esteem plays a crucial role in improving the levels of children`s stress.
