The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of rearing involvement by fathers and their wives' supports on father parenting satisfaction. The subjects of this study were 290 fathers with children aged between 3 to 5. All fathers completed the Parent Satisfaction Scale(Duke, Rose, & Halverson ,1997), Generative Fathering Inventory(Lee, Lee & Cho, 1999) and Spousal Supports for Work and Parenting(Greenberger, Goldberg & Hamill, 1990). The data were subjected to descriptive statistical analysis, independent samples t-test and hierarchical multiple regression. The major results of this study showed that rearing involvement by fathers, responsibility towards their child rearing, and parenting supports from their spouse were significant variables in predicting a father’s parenting satisfaction.

Park, Min-Jung ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 47, issue 5, 2009, Pages 23~34
The purpose of this study was to e
amine the effect of visual imagery stimulated by product information on consumer responses in online shopping conte
ts. Dual coding theory provided the theoretical framework of the study. The proposed model of the study was e
amined by conducting an e
periment using mock apparel websites with a between-subject factorial design: [2 (pictorial information: detailed views vs. no detailed views)
2 (verbal information: detailed descriptions vs. abstract descriptions)]. A total of 439 female college students participated in the e
periment, and 433 responses were ultimately used to test the hypotheses. The findings from the results revealed: (1) the main effects of the pictorial and verbal information on visual imagery, and (2) positive relationships between (a) visual imagery and mood, (b) visual imagery and perceived product quality, (c) mood and perceived product quality, and (d) perceived quality and purchase intentions.

Lee, Joo-Yeon ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 47, issue 5, 2009, Pages 35~48
Parenting knowledge is regarded as an important variable influencing parenting style. This study investigated the parenting knowledge of mothers with infants and analyzed how this knowledge influenced their parenting style. The mothers’ parenting efficacy was included in the analysis as a mediator between parenting knowledge and parenting style. Three hundred and seventy-five mothers with infants completed questionnaires regarding parenting knowledge, parenting efficacy, and parenting style. The results showed that the mothers reported different scores in subcategories of parenting knowledge, in which the highest scores were in knowledge about rearing behavior and the lowest were in the developmental process. Second, there were differences in parenting knowledge scores according to the age, employment status, and educational level of subjects. Third, subjects with the more accurate parenting knowledge reported more positive parenting efficacy and parenting style. Lastly, parenting efficacy completely mediated between parenting knowledge and parenting style.

Lim, Hyo-Yeon ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 47, issue 5, 2009, Pages 59~66
The present study identified the patterns of support exchange between the elderly living alone and their children in a metropolitan city in Japan and examined the relationships between the patterns of support exchange and their life satisfaction. The sample was collected from 1,020 the elderly living alone in Osaka city selected with random sampling method. The questionnaires were mailed to the respondents, who were asked to send them back. The response rate was 51.7%(n = 526). We used 371 sample of respondents who have children. The results indicated that:(1)the patterns of support exchange were different by the types of social support, (2)the life satisfaction of the elderly who had an appropriate balance of a support exchange pattern was significantly higher than the life satisfaction of those who had low support exchange or only provided supports to their children. The findings imply that an appropriate balance of support exchange between the elderly living alone and their children was crucial in improving life satisfaction of the elderly living alone.

(2) Positive mother-adolescent relationship was predicted as protective factor in condition of negative father-adolescent relationship. (3) Family activities was predicted as risk factor in condition of negative mother-adolescent relationship under the circumstances with negative father-adolescent relationship.

Kwak, Jung-In ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 47, issue 5, 2009, Pages 79~94
This study aims to categorize articles in terms of childrearing focused on health and hygiene in Chosun-ilbo and Donga-ilbo in 1920s. As part of this aim we will look into the role of mothers reflected within these articles. Content analysis was used to accomplish the specific objectives of this study. All these articles emphasized the prudent role of mothers and pointed to the fact that holistic knowledge was needed to perform the role of a mother effectively. In other words, mothers had to know about child disease, hygiene, breast milk, nutrition, food, snacks, sleep, exercise and security. Interestingly, the most important matter emphasized in these articles was hygiene. In 1920s, the role of mothers in generally family life was held in high regards in Korean society. In particular, their role within the framework of young children’s health and hygiene was emphasized.

The purpose of this study was to develop a standardized manual to help an educational agency manage the school milk program in cities and provinces. Towards this purpose, we carried out an observational study, content analysis, and survey as the first step. After developing the standardized manual and modifying its contents based on a panel discussion, we implement the delphi-technique as the second step. The standardized manual was composed of an introduction, the administrative direction of educational agency, the management of the school milk program, the management of the free milk program, teaching guidance, selection and contract of supplier, and an appendix. The manual was distributed to over 16 educational agencies for managing the school milk program and was promoted to public officials, such as the officers of educational agencies, the school district officials, and the officers of ministry of agriculture and forestry. The developed manual was targeted for used in schools throughout the nation, but was accepted with reservation in different regions. Therefore, school milk program would be expected to be an efficient management and operation through the use of a standardized manual.
