A Study on the Parenting Stress Trajectories and Causal Structure of Career-Interrupted Married Women
Hyekyung Yeom, Jaesin Kim and Euneui Yim
This study longitudinally examined the developmental trajectories of parenting stress of career-interrupted women with young children, and also explored the factors and outcomes on the developmental trajectories by using the 1st-3rd grade data from the Korean Children Panel. We identified six types of the parenting stress trajectories such as constant-high, constant-moderate, constant-low, downward, upward, and mixed group. The differential factors of parenting stress trajectories in constant-high, upward and downward groups of career-interrupted women, were the mother’s age, education level, marital trouble and parenting behavior. And the differential factors of parenting stress trajectories in constant-high, upward and constant-low groups were the mother’s age, marital conflict, child temperament and parenting behavior. These groups of developmental trajectories showed significant differences in self-esteem, negative self-efficacy, and depression. Based on the findings, the study suggests the methods of positive emotions and successful labor market reentry of career-interrupted women.
