 Abstract
The purpose of this study was to examine the mediating effects of young children`s shyness on the relationship between teacher-children relationship and young children`s social competence. The subjects of the study were 270 children from three years to five years old and their teachers in Busan. Frequency, t-test, Cronbach , Pearson`s correlation coefficients, and hierarchial regression were used for data analysis. The results were as follows: first, teacher-children intimacy showed positive correlation with the young children`s social competence. Teacher-children conflict showed negative correlation with the young children`s social competence. Second, teacher-children intimacy showed negative correlation with the young children`s shyness. Teacher-children conflict showed positive correlation with the young children`s shyness. Third, young children`s shyness showed negative correlation with the young children`s social competence. Fourth, young children`s shyness had partial mediating effects on the relationship between teacher-children intimacy and young children`s sociability. Young children`s shyness had partial mediating effects on the relationship between teacher-children intimacy and young children`s popularity and leadership. Young children`s shyness had partial mediating effects on the relationship between teacher- children conflict and young children`s sociability. Young children`s shyness had partial mediating effects on the relationship between teacher-children conflict and young children`s popularity and leadership.
