Lee, Sook ; Kim, Su-Mi ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 47, issue 1, 2009, Pages 1~12
The purpose of this study was to establish the relative influences of individual variables (sex, age, temperament) and mother's psychosocial variables (maternal attitude, parenting stress, marriage satisfaction) on daily stress levels and maladjustment of young children attending at daycare centers. Subjects were 224 pairs of children and their mothers, and 18 teachers from 5 child-care centers in Gwangju City. Children were tested individually using 22-item daily stress inventory with illustrations which described certain stressful situations. Questionnaires were also administered to mothers and teachers. Collected data were subjected to Cronbach's
, correlation and multiple regression analysis using SPSS (WIN 14.0) program. The major findings were as follows; Overall average score of children's daily stress was equivalent with the median. 'Blame and attack situation' and 'anxiety and frustrated situation' were perceived as more stressful for children than 'lose self-respect situation'. Overall average score of children's maladjustment was lower than the median. 'Overactivity' was highest among subscores of maladjustment. Age was the only significant influential factor on children's daily stress level. Sex was the most influential factor on 'overactivity', 'aggression', and 'regression' of young children. Activity and maternal stress were the second most influential factor on 'overactivity' and 'aggression', respectively.

The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of banking service quality on consumer satisfaction and positive word-of-mouth. A total of 330 bank consumers were investigated between Sept. 11 and Oct. 11, 2006. After sorting through the data, the responses of 299 consumer ( > 24 yrs old) were used for analysis. SERVPERF, the performance component of the Service Quality scale (SERVQUAL), was used to measure the four dimensions of reliability, responsiveness/empathy, assurance, and tangibles. Responses were partitioned by age and gender. The major findings were as follows; The effect of service quality by SERVPERF on consumer satisfaction and positive word-of-mouth did not differ according to gender. However, positive recommendation in males was directy related to the technical quality evaluate. In females, higher the functional quality evaluate was directly related to higher positive word-of-mouth recommendation. The effect of service quality by SERVPERF on consumer satisfaction was not revealed differently according to age. However, with respect to respondents under the age of 45, tangibles and assurance had a positive relationship with word-of-mouth recommendation. Furthermore, the higher the functional quality evaluate, the higher the level of positive word-of-mouth. Responsiveness/empathy was the most significant factor on positive word-of-mouth recommendation in respondents over the age of 45. In this age group, the higher the technical quality evaluate, the higher the level of positive word-of-mouth recommendation. These results have implications for banking service managers, particularly in improving service quality to increase consumer satisfaction and positive word-of-mouth. Future research is needed to replicate this study using more broad and representative samples in order to test the generalization of these findings.
Household Economic Structure and Subjective Evaluation on Economic Status of Households
Kim, Min-Jeung ; Lee, Hee-Sook ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 47, issue 1, 2009, Pages 25~43
The purpose of this study was to find how economic structures differ among four different household groups('enough', 'so so', 'a little difficult', 'very difficult') classified by subjective evaluation on their economic conditions. The data were drawn from 2004 Korean Labor and Income Panel Study conducted by Korea Labor Institute, and
-test and F-test were utilized by SPSS for Windows 10.0. The major findings were as following. First, the economic levels of household groups of 'enough' and 'so so' showed to be higher than the average. This result implies that households tend to evaluate by themselves their economic conditions comparing to the others. Second, the deviations of average economic levels among four different household groups were relatively bigger in household economic elements of liquid asset, monthly savings and insurance than the others, and relatively smaller in household economic elements of total expenditure, especially expenditures in food at home, education, medical, communication than the others. Third, the households of 'a little difficult' and 'very difficult' showed undesirable economic structures resulting from lack of savings and insurance for their future.

Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 47, issue 1, 2009, Pages 45~54
The purpose of the study is to examine the characteristics of the ideal housing for the modern family suggested by the Home Exposition (September, 1915) under the Japanese colonial rule in the macroscopic context of social change and the microscopic context of family. Through this research, we expect to have a partial understanding not only of changes in the outward appearance of traditional housing spaces during the civilization period and the early Japanese colonial rule when foreign cultures began to be introduced but also of families'residential lives and the patterns of change in people's consciousness of housing. Major conclusions from the current analysis are as follows. First, there were some changes in family paradigm induced through a home exhibition. Second, the most important factor for an ideal housing was that it must be the source of harmonic and healthy family life. Third, the importance of an appropriate space norm should be emphasized by providing the minimum size of each room. Fourth, the significance of the housing values of the economy, convenience, and hygiene should be emphasized for the ideal housing. Lastly, it was implied that for an ideal housing, the social and psychological aspects of housing must be satisfied along with the physical aspects. The limitation was that the model of ideal family housing presented in the Home Exposition cannot exclude the characteristics of the colonial perspectives in that it was followed by the model for the Japanese families.

Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 47, issue 1, 2009, Pages 55~63
The purpose of this study was to analyze the path model about the emotional intelligence of multicultural preschoolers'. Multicultural mothers(N = 89) were administered questionnaires on social support, marital satisfaction, depression and mother-child relationship. Teachers(N = 89) were administered a questionnaire on preschoolers' emotional intelligence. The results indicates three things. First, social support effects marital satisfaction directly and mothers' depression indirectly. Second, mothers' depression effects preschoolers' self regulation and other regulation directly. And third, social support, marital satisfaction, mothers' depression effects preschoolers' self cognition indirectly through parent-child relationship.
Reciprocal Influences between Self-esteem and Academic Achievementamong Elementary School Students
Lee, Kyung-Eun ; Lee, u-Lie ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 47, issue 1, 2009, Pages 65~73
The present longitudinal study examined reciprocal influence between self-esteem and academic achievement using cross-lagged autoregressive model. This study employed data(four wave) from Korea Youth Panel Survey. Participants were 300 students(143 boys, 157 girls) who were 4th graders in 2004 and 7th graders in 2007. The results of this study indicated that 4th graders' self-esteem influenced 5th graders' academic achievement, in turn, 5th graders' academic achievement influenced 6th graders' self-esteem. However, students' self-esteem in 6th grade did not influence their academic achievement during 7th grade. Conversely, 6th graders' academic achievement influenced 7th graders' self-esteem.
The Buffering Effects of Self-Mastery on the Relationship between DailyStress and Depression among Adolescents
Lee, Jee-Sook ; Lee, Bong-Jae ; Oh, Yun-Jin ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 47, issue 1, 2009, Pages 75~83
The relationship between daily stress, depression and self-mastery, and the role of self-mastery as a moderator were studied among adolescents (N = 186). Findings were as follows: (1) daily stress was positively correlated with depression, whereas self-master was negatively correlated with depression; (2) items which caused most stress to participants were related to study and peer pressure; (3) self-mastery moderated and buffered the effect of stress on depression, in particular daily stress related to the areas of study and school. Adolescents with high levels of selfmastery were significantly less likely to report symptoms of depression with increasing levels of daily stress, compared to adolescents reporting low levels of self-mastery. Granting limitations imposed by the convenience sample, the study supports the role of theoretical buffering for self-mastery in the context of stress processes, and suggests the need for developing self-mastery of adolescents by implementing empowerment models.

Cho, Sung-Kyo ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 47, issue 1, 2009, Pages 85~91
Dyeability and antimicrobial property of dyed pig skin with Coptis chinensis Franch was investigated. Dyestuff was extracted with water and concentrated. Pig skin was dyed and mordanted according to various dyeing temperature, dyeing time, dyestuff concentration, mordanting methods and kinds of mordants. The results of this experiment were as follows: 1. Dyeability of pig skin with Coptis chinensis Franch was best at 200%(owf) dyestuff concentration, 50
dyeing temperature, and 20min. dyeing time. 2. Pre-mordanting by Cu improved the K/S values of dyed pig skin. 3. Surface color and color difference of dyed pig skin showed various results according to the mordants used : generally their color was yellow, Al post-mordanted pig skin showed the greatest color difference. 4. Color fastness to drycleaning was considerably high in case of staining compared to fading. Fastness to light was improved by Cu-mordanting while other treatments were not effective. 5. Antimicrobial property of samples was not different (99.9%) between untreated and treated.
Variables Associated with Peer Competence of Neglected Children
Moon, Hyuk-Jun ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 47, issue 1, 2009, Pages 93~103
This study analyzed variables associated with peer competence of negelcted children. Participants were made up of 180 preschoolers and their mothers. Neglected children's peer competence was measured by the Peer Competence Scale(Park & Rhee, 2001) and data were subjected to descriptive analysis, Pearson's correlation, and multiple regression analysis. Results showed that neglected children's peer competence was partly associated with the child's temperament and emotional regulation, parenting styles and involvement strategy, and teacher-child relationship. In particular, closeness in teacher-child relationship was the strongest predictor for both children's peer competence in leadership and sociability. Furthermore, a child's ability to regulate emotion was the strongest predictor of their peer competence in prosocial environments.

Kim, Ji-Hyun ; Park, Kyung-Ja ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 47, issue 1, 2009, Pages 105~113
The purpose of this study was to explore differences in social information processing according to children's sex and types of aggression in response to instrumental and relational provocation factors. Two hundred and fifty-one 4, 5, and 6 graders were selected from an elementary school in Seoul. To evaluate their social information processing, the Intent Attributions and Feelings of Distress(Crick, 1995; Fitzgerald & Asher, 1987) and Response Decision Instrument(Crick & Werner, 1998) were revised and analyzed. A peer-nomination measure(Crick, 1995; Crick & Grotpeter, 1995) was used to select aggressive groups. Data were subjected to descriptive statistical analysis and multivariate [2(sex: M, F)
3(type of aggression: overt, relational, overt and relational aggression)] analysis of variance. Findings revealed that children's social information processing patterns were different according to sex and type of aggression. Also aggressive children responded differently in their social information processing according to instrumental and relational provocation factors. Implications of these findings for the role of gender, aggression type, and provocation type are discussed in order to better understanding of children's social information processing.
