This study aimed to examine whether greater parental daily spiritual practices relate to their psychological aggression potential and parenting stress. A sample of Korean American adults who identified as Christians and had at least one child aged 18 and under were included in the sample (n = 108). Correlations associated with parental daily spiritual practices, their psychological aggression potential, and parenting stress were examined. Hierarchical multiple regression analyses and negative binomial regression analysis were used to determine if parental daily spiritual practices are predictive of lower parental psychological aggression and parenting stress. Results found weak to moderate correlations between parental daily spiritual experiences and parenting stress. Results also suggest that parental daily spiritual experiences are inversely related to parenting stress whereas psychological aggression was found to be non-significant. The implications and limitation of the study were discussed.
