Examination of stress levels of parents with preschool children in terms of different variables
Stress levels of parents with preschool children
The study aimed to examine the relationship between the stress levels of parents with preschool children and the variables of the parents' gender, age, education level, perceived income level, number of children and age of the child. The study was carried out via relational scanning model. The participants of the study were selected using easy sampling method, and consisted of 307 volunteer parents with children between the ages of 4-6. The data were collected online via the Participation Acceptance Form, General Information Form both of which were developed by the researchers, and Parental Stress Scale developed by Kaymak Özmen ve Özmen (2012) in 2020-2021 school year. The data obtained were analyzed using the SPSS 25 statistical package program, and utilizing the tests such as ANOVA, Mann Whitney U Test, and Kruskal Wallis H Test. The results revealed that there was no relationship between the stress level of the parents and the parents' gender, age, education level, perceived income level, the number of children they have, but there was a relationship between the parental stress level and the age of the children. Various recommendations have been made regarding these results.
