PURPOSE: This study was conducted to describe the relationship of perception of parenting attitude, behavior problems and resilience of school age children.
METHODS: Participants were 131 children enrolled in the 4th to 6th grades. Data were collected from November 29 to December 6, 2010 using a self-report questionnaire. The questionnaire included the Parental Bonding Instrument, Korean version of Youth Self-Report, and Resilience. Data were analyzed using SPSS WIN 18.0 program.
RESULTS: There were significant differences in resilience according to gender, relationship with peers, academic achievement and school satisfaction. Resilience showed a positive correlation with parental bonding attitude and negative correlation with problem behavior in the children.
CONCLUSION: This result suggests that interventions focusing on parenting attitude to enhance resilience should be developed to help school age children.
