This study examined the effects of fathers` play participation on young children`s social competence and self-regulation. The subjects consisted of 180 fathers with children at ages between 4-7 years old from 2 preschools and 3 kindergartens located in Y city in Gyeonggi province. The analyses used for this study included the t-test and multiple regression analysis. The main findings are as follows. First, fathers` play participation was not different by sociodemographic characteristics such as fathers` age, educational level, and job. Second, fathers` participation in functional play, role play, and constructive play was positively related to social activator, reassurance, and cooperation among subscales on children`s social competence. Also, fathers` participation in games was negatively related to reassurance among children and positively related to hypersensitivity among children. Third, fathers` participation in role play and functional play was positively related to children`s self-monitoring and self-control. These findings suggest emphasizing fathers` play participation to improve children`s social competence and children`s self-regulation, and it can be helpful to underline fathers` education and to develop programs for fathers` play.
