Kim, Jung-Won ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 46, issue 1, 2008, Pages 1~14
The purpose of this study was to develop and implement web-based parental education programs applicable for the parents of young children in Korea. The results of this study were as follows. First, the parents of the young children recognized the importance of parental education, but were unable to participate in face-to-face parental education programs. However, they welcomed the possibility of participating in web-based parental education programs. Second, to develop web-based parental education programs, the parents' needs should be assessed and preliminary content analysis based on the previous works and subject specialists' opinions should be conducted. In addition, results of research about web-based education programs in various fields, especially about teaching-learning methods in web-based education for adult learners, should be considered in the process of developing web-based programs for the parents of young children. Third, various types of needs and demands should be assessed during the step-by-step program application periods and at the end of the program implementation. Finally, the parents who participated and assessed the web-based parental education program in this study were generally satisfied with the content and teaching-learning methods.

Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 46, issue 1, 2008, Pages 25~37
The aim of this study was to provide basic materials that would enable students who take courses in the subjects of technology and home economics to take the knowledge and technological skills they learn in the classroom and apply them to real life situations and to nurture their thinking power and creativity. To achieve these research objectives, a survey was conducted on 217 home economics teachers at 129 schools in the metropolitan area in order to assess their classroom operations and the adequacy of the curriculum regarding "clothes-making and reuse." The results showed that most of the schools surveyed have only one classroom for home economics and that a majority of them are cooking rooms. The most preferred place to practice making clothes was found to be the classroom. In addition, the use of teaching aids pertaining to clothes-making are lacking or in poor shape. Furthermore, analysis of the curriculum regarding "clothes-making and reuse" showed that most of the students use kits that contain materials for making clothes, due to a lack of practice hours. Most teachers thought that this section was appropriate for the school curriculum. In the more detailed categories, the students' ability to use sewing machines was the lowest, while the ability to sew by hand was selected as the most useful and most appropriate for real life situations.

Choi, Jeong-Wha ; Song, Eun-Young ; Park, Joon-Hee ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 46, issue 1, 2008, Pages 39~45
We analyzed the effects of regular Jjimjilbang(Korean sauna) exposure on the physiological responses in seven elderly farmers(Male=3, Female=4). Jjimjil training group took a bath in Jjimjilbang 8 times twice a week. Jjimjibang exposure was limited three times per day. Rectal temperature, total sweat rate, body fat (%), blood pressure, pulse,
concentration in sweat, and subjective sensation were measured during Jjimjil training exposure. The results are as follow: During Jjimjil exposure, changes of rectal temperature in male farmers were more stabilized than female farmers. The gradual decrease in total sweat rate and Na+ concentration in sweat was observed in both sexes. After Jjimjil exposure, the decrease in blood pressure was observed in both sexes, but not observed changes according to regular Jjimjil exposure. Subjective thermal comfort sensation was changed positively. In conclusion, the regular Jjimjil exposure has positive effects upon improvement in regulation of body temperature, blood pressure, and
concentration especially in heat tolerance.

Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 46, issue 1, 2008, Pages 63~72
The purpose of this study was to investigate the appearance management behaviors and motives differentiated by the body image of college men. A questionnaire was designed for the survey and the subjects were 228 college in Pusan and the Kyongnam province, Korea. The statistical analyses were carried out in the forms of frequency, factor analysis, cluster analysis, ANOVA and Duncan's multiple range test. The findings throughout the research are as follows; First, according to the multidimensional body image of the subjects, the college men were classified into three groups, i.e. the appearance concerning and satisfied group, the weight concerning group, and the appearance indifferent group. The appearance management behaviors of the college men consist of innovative appearance management, weight reduction, appearance management through apparel and fashion products, body shape care, skin care, hair care and health care.

Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 46, issue 1, 2008, Pages 73~86
The purpose of this study was to investigate the personal traits of children's characteristics as well as those of mothers' on the children's maladjustment behaviors. The study subjects were 345 preschooler-mother pairs. Results revealed that boys exhibited more maladjustment behaviors than girls, as expected. The results of a three way ANOVA analyses indicated that the multiple interactive factors of the children's temperament, cognitive outcomes, and parenting attitudes significantly affected the children's maladjustment behaviors. This trend was only representative across the sample of boys. In this study, the interaction effects of negative parenting attitudes and the children's lower levels of cognitive development on the children's maladjustment capacity were accentuated among boys with temperamental vulnerability.

Park, Sun-Wook ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 46, issue 1, 2008, Pages 87~101
Using the 1999 National Survey of America's Families(NSAF), this study investigated the factors that affect child care expenses and examined financial and social support of single mother families in the U. S. In this study, 4,676 single mother families with children aged twelve and under are included for the analytical sample. About half of all single mother families with children under age 12 had some amount of child care expenses in 1999. Monthly child care expenses for those who had child care expenses was an average of $255 and it accounted for about 15 percent of their family earnings. The profile of financial and social support showed that about one-quarter of single mothers received financial support for child care, one-fifth received free child care by relatives and about 40 percent received child support payments from nonresident fathers. Tobit analysis results showed that the significant factors that affected child care expenses were mother's age, marital status, educational level, employment status, the numbers of children aged 0-5, family income, the receipt of public assistance and financial support for child care.
A Typology of Mid-life Adults' Everyday life : An Analysis of Time Diary
Cha, Seung-Eun ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 46, issue 1, 2008, Pages 103~116
The purpose of this study was to empirically describe the everyday life of middle-aged adults in terms of their time-use activities. From the original '2004 Time dairy' Data, developed by the Korean National Statistical Office (KNOS), 17,684 respondents aged between 35-59 were selected. In order to categorize their activity patterns, work/labour, domestic labour, and spare leisure time were classified according to the action classification system. As a result, four dominant types were found: namely work-leisure, work-oriented, family-oriented, and leisure-oriented activities. Results of multinomial logistic analysis revealed that gender, age, socioeconomic status, job characteristic, and family structure were the major determinants on time-use. Compared with work-leisure, young middle aged women holding a part-time job with less income tended to be involved in a family-centered time use. Dual earners with lower SES status were likely to have work-oriented time schedules. Older men with relatively lower income were more likely to be involved in leisure-oriented activities rather than work-leisure activities. Multitasking behavior was a significant variable in explaining the four different types of time-use. Work-oriented group showed the highest level of time pressure as well as fatigue. Group differences in these measures, however, was not as large as expected.
The Effects of Mothers' Reading and Teacher's Sensitivity and Permissiveness on 4-and 5-year-olds' Verbal and Numerical Abilities in Low-income Families - The Analysis of FACES Data in the U.S. to Develop Intervention Programs for Low-Income Families -
Chang, Young-Eun ; Lee, Soak-Jung ; Lee, Kang-Yi ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 46, issue 1, 2008, Pages 117~129
In present study, using 1572 low-income families and 266 Head Start teachers from Family and Child Experiences Survey (FACES) in the U.S., we examined the effects of mothers' reading and the characteristics of interaction between teacher-child interaction on 4-and 5-year-olds' cognitive development represented by their verbal and numerical abilities. Frequencies of mothers' reading at home consistently predicted higher scores of children's Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test and Woodcock Johnson Applied Problems. Teachers' sensitivity and permissiveness in their interactions with children in classroom were positively related to children's verbal abilities and teachers' sensitivity predicted better numerical abilities of children after controlling for mothers' reading and the characteristics of family and teacher. The findings shed light on the contributions of teacher behaviors and familial factors to children's cognitive development calling for attention to the need for parent education on cognitively stimulating family environments and continuing education for early childhood teachers focusing on quality interactions with young children.
