The purpose of this study was to examine the main and interaction effects of parenting behaviors on
emotional problems among children and adolescents. Korean Child Youth Panel Survey data of 4th wave
were used to analyze 2,119 of 4th graders in elementary school and 2,108 of 1st graders in high school.
The results were as follows; Some significant interaction effects were found. When children perceived
higher affection and monitoring from parents, then they show higher aggression and physical problems.
Adolescents, in contrast, who perceived higher affection and monitoring from their parents, their emotional
problems appeared in lower level. Interestingly, when adolescents perceived that higher inconsistent
parenting and monitoring at the same time, then their emotional problems are also turned out to be
higher. Implications from the findings of interaction effects were discussed.
