ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study was to develop and validate a Korean version of Subjective Sense of Calling in Childrearing Scale (K-SSCCS) in order to integrate cultural differences in parental roles and the meaning of parenthood. The study developed 26 preliminary items based on the original questions from the Subjective Sense of Calling in Childrearing Scale (SSCCS), the results from a qualitative study examining the concept of a life calling to raise children, and literature about Korean parents. In Study 1, exploratory factor analysis was conducted (N = 479). The results showed 19 items representing four factors (purpose/identity, sacrifice/devotion, passion/growth, and awareness/focus). In Study 2, results of confirmatory factor analysis supported 18 items with four factors (N = 628). A validity analysis and evaluation of a nomological network, along with psychological well-being and parenting variables, confirmed that the K-SSCCS would be a reliable scale for measuring the strength of the calling to raise children. The implications of the study are discussed.
