This analysis of trends in research on parent-child relationships published in Korean journals focused on child and family studies. Analysis was for research frequency, contents, and methodology. Results showed that 186 research articles on parent-child relationship were published between 2000 and 2006.

The Effects of Maternal Attitude Toward Child's Emotional Expressiveness and Maternal Emotional Expressiveness on Preschoolers' Emotional Regulation Strategies
Seo, Hyelin ; Lee, Young ;
Korean Journal of Child Studies, volume 29, issue 2, 2008, Pages 33~56
This study examined effects on children's emotional expressiveness and regulation strategies or maternal attitudes and emotional expressiveness. Participants were 180 children(88 girls) age 3-5, their mothers, and 20 teachers. Results showed boys used more aggressive and girls used more positive coping strategies. Younger children used more aggressive and non-expressive strategies. When mothers had more Permissive and Accepting attitudes, children used more positive coping strategies. When mothers had more Restrictive or Controlling attitudes, children used more aggressive strategies. When mothers expressed positive emotions, children used fewer aggressive and venting strategies. When mothers expressed negative emotions, children used more aggressive and fewer positive coping and non-expressive strategies. Negative maternal emotional expressiveness was an especially influential factor on children's emotional regulation strategies.
Model Analysis on Factors Affecting Maternal Acceptance - Rejection - Mediating Effects of Parenting Stress -
Lee, Ju Lie ;
Korean Journal of Child Studies, volume 29, issue 2, 2008, Pages 57~71
This study examined the influences on maternal acceptance-rejection and mediating effects of parenting stress. Participants were 150 mothers of children aged 3 to 6 in Seoul and Jeju. Research questions were analyzed by structural equation modeling. Results showed that children's age, congenital diseases or anomalies, planned pregnancy, and father's occupation influenced maternal acceptance-rejection directly. Mothers' perceived treatment in childhood and fathers' age influenced parenting stress; parenting stress, in turn, influenced maternal acceptance-rejection. Fathers' age influenced parenting stress negatively; parenting stress, in turn, influenced maternal acceptance-rejection positively.
The Effect of Music Experiences on Language Development in Child Care Toddler
Hwang, Inju ;
Korean Journal of Child Studies, volume 29, issue 2, 2008, Pages 73~87
This research studied the effects of music experiences on the language development of toddlers in the day care setting. Subjects were 44(23 experimental group; 21 control group) 29- to 42-month-old children. The experimental group experienced 10 weeks of music activities, including musical sense, singing, listening, playing instruments, improvisation, finger plays, movement, simple games, word-sound music games and music routines. Language development was tested by the Preschool Receptive-Expressive Language Scale(Kim et al. 2003). Significant differences were found in the receptive language development of 30- to 36-month-old and in the expressive language development of 36- to 42-month-old toddlers, respectively.
Enhancing Interaction Between Child and Mother in Low-income Families : Effects of Family Group Theraplay
Yoon, Jeong-Hee ;
Korean Journal of Child Studies, volume 29, issue 2, 2008, Pages 89~108
This study used Family Group Theraplay (Munns, 2005) to investigate the effects of enhancing interaction between child and mother on mitigating developmental risks for children growing up in low-income households. The subjects for the study were selected from among Community Child Care Centers and Community Welfare Centers in Seoul. The children were in the first, second, and third grades of elementary school. Eleven child-mother dyads participated in Family Group Theraplay once a week for a total of 12 45-minute sessions. The control group consisted of 9 child-mother dyads. The Family Group Theraplay program improved interaction between the children and their mothers and also reduced children's behavior problems and mothers' parenting stress.
Toddler's Gender and Temperament by Maternal Stress as Predictors of Mothers' Parenting Behavior
Park, Seong Yeon ; Rubin, Kenneth H. ;
Korean Journal of Child Studies, volume 29, issue 2, 2008, Pages 109~124
The objective of this study was to identify how child's gender, temperament, mother's stress and their interactions predict parenting behavior. The subjects were 97 2-year-olds(47boys; 50girls) and their mothers. Data were gathered by questionnaires. Results of a series of hierarchical regression analyses showed combinations of variables that predicted parenting behaviors : (1) mothers reported higher over-protectiveness toward girls and when they were under higher stress. (2) An interaction effect showed that mothers with sons who had higher 'difficult' temperaments reported greater over-protective parenting under greater stress. (3) There were no significant differences in over-protective parenting under low stress, regardless of the level of difficult temperament. (4) Mother's stress was a strong predictor of supportive parenting behaviors.
The Effect of Home Environment and Teacher Variables on Children's Musical Ability and Attitudes
Jung, Hye Sun ; Kim, Soo Young ;
Korean Journal of Child Studies, volume 29, issue 2, 2008, Pages 125~137
This study used path analysis to investigate the effect of home environment and teacher variables on children's musical ability and attitudes. Participants were 235 children, their parents and 13 teachers of kindergartens located in G city in Gyeongbuk Province. Instruments were the Primary Measurement of Music Audiation(Gordon, 1986), the Music Teaching Efficacy Instrument(Riggs & Enochs, 1990), and questionnaires about children's musical attitudes, home environment and music activities. Results showed that teacher variables affected children's musical ability directly and indirectly and children's attitude affected their musical ability directly. Psychological and physical variables of the home environment affected children's musical ability and attitudes positively.
A Study on the Personality Disposition of Early Childhood Teachers Affecting the Teachers' Belief of Efficacy
Lee, Hyewon ;
Korean Journal of Child Studies, volume 29, issue 2, 2008, Pages 139~153
The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between the teachers' belief of efficacy and their personality dispositions (reflective thinking, emotional adaptability, and motivation orientation). A survey was conducted of 282 kindergarten teachers working in the area of Seoul and Gyeonggi-Do. Data were processed and analyzed by statistical methods of descriptive statistics, Pearson correlations, and hierarchical multiple regressions. Results showed that teachers' belief of efficacy was positively correlated with their personality dispositions of reflective thinking, emotional adaptability, and motivation orientation-approach. They were negatively correlated with motivational orientation-avoidance. Teachers' belief of efficacy was highly correlated with emotional adaptability in all variables, followed by reflective thinking and motivation orientations-avoidance.
Exploring Variables of Korean Language Education for Preschooler With Multicultural Family Background
Kim, Min Hwa ; Shin, Hye Eun ;
Korean Journal of Child Studies, volume 29, issue 2, 2008, Pages 155~176
This study explored variables related to Korean language education for preschool children with multicultural family backgrounds. Participants were 21 Korean language teachers and 14 women who immigrated from China, Japan, Mongolia, Philippines, and Vietnam to marry Korean men. They were mothers of children 2 to 7 years of age and had lived in Korea an average of five years. Mean age of mothers was 37(range of 30 to 43). Half had college and none had less then middle school education. They were interviewed with a series of semi-structured questionnaires. The children were reported to have a low level of vocabulary and articulation because their mothers could not provide fruitful oral language experiences. Supporting systems including family literacy were discussed.
