This cross-sectional study examined 13 homeschooling parent’s and 19 homeschooling children’s perceived stress to establish what level of stress exists and if these levels have any significant association with the child’s mental and physical health status.
The analysis revealed that both homeschooling parent’s and their children’s levels of perceived stress are relatively low according to the scale. In addition, no significant association was discovered between the perceived stress levels of homeschooling parents and children. When comparing parent perceived stress to the child’s fitness level, one significant association was noted in regards to flexibility. No significance was found when comparing children’s perceived stress level to their own fitness level. In addition, multiple sociodemographic characteristics were also compared and an analysis of variance determined no significance existed between these variables as well.
