The aim of this research is to revitalize related academic fields and to provide implications for developing policies by suggesting more in-depth research contents and methodologies, using the Panel Study on Korean Children (PSKC) longitudinal data. This report is composed of three independent subjects: child’s growth and development, nurturing environment, and health.
The first study explored following issues: the effect of private education experience in childhood on five year old’s behavioral problem, the influence of maternal rearing behaviors, parenting stress, frequency of cultural infrastructure usage on child’s social skill, longitudinal relationships among mother’s parenting stress, parenting behavior and child’s behavioral problem, and the influence factors on child’s school readiness. The second research topic on child’s nurturing environment dealt with exploration of predictor variables on maternal depressive symptoms and their risks as a consequence of growth of their children and the changes in parenting values of Korean parents with infants focused on the comparison with European Values Study. The third subject of study explored the effects of parents’ perinatal socioeconomic status on occurrence of children’s allergic disease.
By emphasizing essential issues that must be considered at a national level, the research of PSKC attempted to contribute to the formulation and implementation of policies that support children’s healthy and sound growth and development.
