The Development of an Inventory for Measuring the Parenting Self - Efficacy of Korean Mothers
Hyung Sung Choi,Ock Boon Chung
The development of this inventory for measuring the parenting self-efficacy of Korean mothers took place in Seoul with 473 mothers of 5th and 6th grade children. Means, %, χ² , Cramer`s V, Cronbach`s α, Split-half Reliability, factor analysis and Pearson`s r were used for data analysis. Five parenting self-efficacy factors were extracted from the 37 items developed for this study. Subscales were General Parenting Self-Efficacy, Health, Communication, Education, and Control. Criterion Validity of the 37 items was confirmed by a significant correlation with the Shin`s parenting self-efficacy(r=.71). Internal consistency of this scale was high (Cronbach`s α=.92), including internal reliability of subscales. Factor validity was satisfactory at .65 - .86. These results confirm this scale as a valid and reliable measure of the parenting self-efficacy of Korean mothers.
