The purpose of this study was to verify influence of disagreement in parent-based child-rearing
attitudes on depression and social anxiety in children. The aim was to examine about which
difference there is in influence of disagreement in parents' child-rearing attitudes upon
depression and social anxiety between the group with the high 30% and the group with the
low 30% in disagreement of parents' child-rearing attitudes, by each sub-type.
Research participants were sampled 548 children(males=293, females=255) aged 11～13 in the
5th and 6th grade of elementary school. Data was collected on marital discords, parents'
child-rearing attitudes, depression and social anxiety, which were perceived from each of
children. Based on the collected data, the relationship between measurement variables in each
was examined. The analysis was made with hypothesis as saying that there will be statistically
significant difference between groups with high and low disagreement level in parents'
child-rearing attitudes. As a result of analysis, the disagreement in child-rearing attitudes was
indicated to be higher in both depression and social anxiety in the group with the high 30%
than the group with the low 30%, thereby having indicated the statistically significant
difference. Parents' child-rearing disagreement, which does much psychological control among
sub-types of parents' child-rearing attitudes, was indicated to have influence upon both
depression and social anxiety. As a result of this study, it could be known that the more
experience of perceiving the disagreement level of parents' child-rearing attitudes highly within
family leads to the more negative influence upon psychological problems like child's
depression and social anxiety in daily life. As seen in the existing prior research, the parents'
stable child-rearing attitudes could be confirmed once again to be element available for giving psychological stability to child. In addition, it can be considered to be result that makes necessity
recognized on a point of respecting mutual opinion, recognizing and adjusting mutual difference
in parents' rearing or guiding child within home when a child perceives.
