The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationships between mothers' parenting efficacy and parenting behaviors, home environment, and preschool children's learning behaviors. The participants consisted of 244 preschool children and their mothers in Seoul and GyeongGi-Do. The children's teachers rated the learning behaviors of each child whose mother returned our questionnaire. The collected data were subjected to general descriptive statistical analysis, t-test, one-way ANOVA, and Pearson's productive correlation. Results showed that learning behaviors of preschool children were affected by their sex, age, and mother's education. In addition, there were negative relationships between mothers' parenting efficacy, parenting behaviors, and learning behaviors of preschool children.
