The purpose of this study is to empirically analyze the causal relationship between mother's parenting stress and family resilience in children with ADHD. Methods: The results of the survey were hierarchically regressed. The participants were 113 mothers of children with ADHD and who lived in resident in Busan and Gyeongsangnam-do Province. The main contents of the study were as follows: First, there was a significant difference in family resilience level according to mother's educational background and family monthly income. Second, the higher the parenting stress, the lower the family resilience ($r=-.622^{**}$), and all three types of coping methods showed the highest correlation with family resilience. Third, the variables affecting family resilience were in the order of problem - centered coping (${\beta}=.376$), parenting stress (${\beta}=-.338$) and mother's academic ability (${\beta}=.239$). Based on this study, this study suggested a social welfare practice plan to reduce the parenting stress and increase the resilience of the mother of the child with ADHD.
