The purposes of this study were to investigate the child-rearing attitude, parenting stress and their relationship and to identify the predictors of parenting stress among infant mothers. A descriptive correlational study was conducted. The participants were 258 infant mothers who visited a health department in G city. Self-administered questionnaire was used for data collection. For data analysis, descriptive statistics, t-test, ANOVA, Scheffe multiple comparison, Pearson correlation coefficient and multiple regression analysis were conducted. The average score for child-rearing attitude was 70.5 and parenting stress was 76.80. Child-rearing attitude was significantly correlated with parenting stress. Child-rearing attitude, husband support, economic status, the mother’s age, the mother’s perception of infant’s growth were significant predictors explaining 40.4% parenting stress. Nursing interventions need to be developed and applied to improve child-rearing attitude of infant mothers and to maintain and promote health status of infants. Further studies are needed to identify the predictors of parenting stress. (Korean J Str Res 2015;23:91∼100)
