Hee Jung Woo , Jung Mi Choi
The purpose of this research is to delineate the effect of maternal variables of the children`s depression. Such variables as the mother`s age, her education level and maternal parenting stress have been chosen for the analysis. The sample subject were 659 pairs of fifth/sixth grade of elementary school and first/second grade of middle school and their mothers. The data were analyzed frequency, percentage, factor analysis, Cronbach`s alpha, ANOVA, Pearson`s correlation, and stepwise multiple regression analysis. The major findings of the research are as follows : First, the children`s depression is significantly related to mother`s education level but the children`s depression is not significantly related to mother`s age. Second, parenting stress related to temperament, relationship and learning expectation is significantly related to children`s depression. Third, the result of step multiple regression analysis on the effects of the maternal variables to the children`s depression indicates that maternal parenting stress related to temperament, relationship and mother education level are the significant contributing factor. All in all, the maternal variables account for 7% of the children`s depression score.
