A Study on Materialism and Clothing Buying Behavior
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 39, issue 3, 2001, Pages 1~10
The Purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between materialism and clothing buying behavior (clothing shopping orientation, clothing selection standards, use of information sources, store selection standards, purchase and purchase intention of imported clothing). The data were obtained from questionnaires completed by 400 women in the Taegu area whose age was 20 years and older. The SPSS/PC
package was used for data analysis which included a test of reliability, frequency, percentage, factor analysis, t-test, and x
test. There were significant differences in clothing buying behavior between groups who had a higher tendency and a lower tendency toward materialism. In other words, those who had a higher tendency toward materialism enjoyed their shopping and pursued the world-known brands, imported brands, the latest fashions, and conspicious consumption more than those who had a lower tendency of materialism. The former put a greater focus on the latest fashion styles, brand image, and design then the latter when the\ulcorner bought clothing. Those who had a higher tendency toward materialism utilized more information sources than those who had a lower tendency. The former made purchases from the stores where they stock famous world-known brands and well-advertised stores, and had a greater purchase intention of imported clothing than the latter. In the purchase of imported clothing there was no significant difference between two groups.s.

Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 39, issue 3, 2001, Pages 11~23
Parental attitudes and mediation of children's television viewing has focused primarily on broadcast television, although recent developments in technology have greatly expanded the availability of VCRs in home environment. To build a more comprehensive model of parental mediation of TV Viewing in the new video environment, this article analyzed parental attitudes toward children's video viewing and factors associated with parental mediation of children's video viewing using questionnaire responses from 659 mothers of four to six-year-old children. Both restrictive and evaluative parental mediation were associated with not only parental factors but also contextual factors. Descriptive data on parental attitudes and mediation of children's video viewing were also presented.
The Effects of Cognitive Ability on Emotional and Behavioural Problems Among Preschoolers
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 39, issue 3, 2001, Pages 25~34
The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between cognitive ability and emotional and behavioural problems in a nonclinical sample of 120 preschool children aged 4-5 years. Cognitive ability scores were derived from the 'McCarthy Scales of Children's Abilities', and emotional and behavioural problems were measured using quantitative and dimensional method, 'Child Behavior Checklist'. The results from this study support similar findings among older children and clinical populations that lower McCarthy general, verbal, and perceptual-performance IQ scores are associated with internalizing and externalizing emotional and behavioural problems. On the basis of this study, early identification of intellectual deficits among preschool children may help to prevent later school difficulties and severe psychopathology.

Emotion Regulation Among Nonmaternal Care Infants: The Effect of Separation/Nonmaternal Care Experiences and Child/Mother Variables
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 39, issue 3, 2001, Pages 67~81
The purpose of this investigation was to examine whether early child-care experience, alone or in combination with mother/child factors, was associated with emotion regulation. Participants were forty 12-18 month-old infants, their mothers and their caregivers. Infants were observed in the Strange Situation to assess the pattern of emotion regulation. Mothers were interviewed, given Questionnaires, and observed in play. Caregivers were observed in child care to assess the caregiving environment. There were significant main effects of good quality child care on open emotion expression and heightening emotion expression. Significant interaction effects revealed that infants were more likely to be open emotion expression when high maternal sensitivity /responsiveness was combined with good quality child care, or nonmaterial care initiated prior to six month of age. Infants were more likely to be minimizing emotion expression when low maternal sensitivity/responsiveness was combined with nonmaternal care initiated after six month of age, or more than one care arrangement. Difficult temperament infants received nonrelative care were somewhat more likely to be minimizing emotion expression. Infants were more Likely to be heightening emotion expression when high maternal sensitivity/responsiveness was combined with relative care. Boys experiencing nonrelative care were more Likely to be heightening emotion expression.
The Acquisition and Dyeability of Eucommiae Cortex Colorant
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 39, issue 3, 2001, Pages 83~91
The dyeability of the Eucommiae Cortex were examined to establish the optimum condition for dyeing of Eucommiae Cortex. The results of this study are as follows, Wool, nylon and silk had the highest K/S value at pH 3. The dyeability was the highest in wool, nylon, and silk. In addition, the increase in K/S value corresponded to temperature in wool, nylon and silk, and the greatest K/S value at 95
. The increase in K/S value corresponded to dyeing times in wool, nylon and silk, and the greatest K/S value at 120min. Also, the K/S value increased in concomitance with the increased number of dyeing repetition. In the most cases, colorfastness of light was low but colorfastness of laundry, sweat was relatively good.

Sharing their unique cloture such as communal place(teojeon), common issues, same generation, unique terms, specific modes of speaking informally or nicknaming, they accept the diversities and head for the sameness to have a harmony. In the reset of forming relationship, these families transfer successfully from the field of I and my family to that of group. They escape from a sense of priority that concerns their own family first and then others. They come to be able to consider the group first.
