The purpose of this study was to explore the mediatory effects of children’s social skills on the relationship between parenting attitude and child aggression. The participants were 479 boys and girls selected from fifth-and sixth-grade classes in Busan. The major findings of this study were as follows: First, there were gender differences in parenting attitudes, children’s social skills and child aggression. Second, child aggression directly affected parents’ attitudes and the child’s social skills. However, child aggression indirectly caused an autonomous parenting attitude, mediating the child’s social skills.
