We examined the differences in Korean children’s daily routines and their mothers’ perceived level of parenting stress according to socioeconomic status (SES). Mothers from low-income (239) and high-income (338) families with young children completed questionnaires regarding their perceived level of parenting stress and the daily routines of their children. We found significant differences between the 2 SES subgroups in terms of some of the dimensions of their children’s daily routines. In addition, the low-income mothers experienced higher levels of maternal parenting stress compared to their high-income counterparts. Implications for research and parenting are discussed.
