ABSTRACT

Parental burnout occurs as a result of a long-term accumulation of parental stress. This study was conducted to validate the Parental Burnout Assessment (PBA) developed by Roskam et. al. in South Korea. PBA is composed of 23 questions in four sub-factors such as ‘exhaustion: exhaustion in one’s parental role’, ‘contrast: contrast in parental self’, ‘saturation: feelings of being fed up’, and ‘emotional distancing: emotional distancing from one’s children.’ To validate the scale, the data from 226 mothers parenting at least one child under age 5 were used to identify the distribution of items, reliability, and validity. A confirmatory factor analysis was conducted for the 4-factor PBA model and convergent validity were examined by correlation analysis of Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI), Parental Burnout Inventory (PBI), and Parenting Stress Index (PSI). This study established a validated scale that can be used to measure parental burnout among South Korean parents.
