ABSTRACT

This study investigates the effects of parents-related variables and self-related variables on children's emotional and behavioral problems with 2844 4th graders in elementary schools. They are the 2005 panel of Korean Youth Panel Study by Korea Institute for Youth Development. According to the covariance structure analysis, this study found the effects of parnets-related variables such as parental attachment, family violence, and parent supersion, and self-related variables such as self-esteem and self-control on children's emotional and behavioral problems. The self-related variables, in comparison with parents-related variables. are more likely to have direct and considerable influences on the emotional and behavioral problems and the self-esteem is the most influential variable. A interesting finding is that the direct and the indirect effects of parent supersivion on the emotional and behavioral problems are contrary to each other. The direct effect showed that the level of the emotional and behavioral problems increases as the level of parent supervision increases. On the other hand, as the level of parent supersion increases, the level of the emotional and behavioral problems decreases through increasing the level of self-esteem. These findings are thoroughly discussed.
