Lee, Sa-Rah ; Park, Ji-Sook ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 48, issue 1, 2010, Pages 1~14
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2010.48.1.001
The purpose of this study was to develop a Korean culture-specific parenting education program for parents with school aged children, and to investigate how this program affected their overall parenting behavior. We ran an 8-week session program for parents with first, second and third elementary school graders and conducted questionnaires before and after the program in order to examine the program`s effects. In the questionnaire, we asked participants about parenting behavior, parenting stress, parenting efficacy and parenting knowledge. The results showed that the program participants tended to have higher scores on parenting behavior, parenting efficacy and parenting knowledge after the eight sessions. They also demonstrated lower scores on parenting stress. Study results imply that our parenting program is practical in an elementary school setting and can also apply to higher graders.

The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationships between mothers` parenting efficacy and parenting behaviors, home environment, and preschool children`s learning behaviors. The participants consisted of 244 preschool children and their mothers in Seoul and GyeongGi-Do. The children`s teachers rated the learning behaviors of each child whose mother returned our questionnaire. The collected data were subjected to general descriptive statistical analysis, t-test, one-way ANOVA, and Pearson`s productive correlation. Results showed that learning behaviors of preschool children were affected by their sex, age, and mother`s education. In addition, there were negative relationships between mothers` parenting efficacy, parenting behaviors, and learning behaviors of preschool children.

Oh, Hyun-Jeong ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 48, issue 1, 2010, Pages 27~40
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2010.48.1.027
The objectives of this study were to investigate differences in shopping style and consumption value of apparel product type, and to establish the effects of consumption value on shopping style. A questionnaire was used to collect data from 263 women aged between 20 to 49 in Gwangju on their shopping style and consumption value according to formal and casual product type. Collected data were subjected to frequency analysis, factor analysis, ANOVA, t-test and multiple regression analysis using statistical program SPSS(version 17.0). Results showed that shopping style could be influenced by six factors: fashion-recreational, quality-brand, impulsive, confused, brand-loyal, and price conscious consumer. Clothing consumption value was influenced by five factors: emotional, functional, epistemic, social, and situational value. Shopping style and clothing consumption value were significantly different between a formal product purchaser and a casual product purchaser. Consumption value had a significant influence on shopping style of the formal product purchaser and also the casual product purchaser.

Kim, Na-Hyeon ; Kim, Kyong-Yeon ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 48, issue 1, 2010, Pages 41~54
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2010.48.1.041
The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationships among children`s important self-domain, self-evaluation and global self-esteem by gender. Information was collected on 376 5-6th graders from elementary schools in Busan. The major findings were that 1) The self-evaluation of peer domain was the most powerful determinant on self-esteem in both boys and girls 2) The percentage that valued domain of family self was higher than the other groups in both boys and girls(boys 36.3%, girls 55.4%). 3) In boys` domains of peer self and computer self, important self-domain moderated the effect of self evaluation on global self-esteem.

Kim, Yeon ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 48, issue 1, 2010, Pages 55~66
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2010.48.1.055
The purpose of this study was to investigate the role of variables on young children`s external aggression and relational aggression. Specifically, young children`s temperaments and gender differences, parental marital conflicts, fathers` anti-social behaviors, mothers` child-rearing behaviors and psychological characteristics were studied. The findings of the study were as follows: Firstly, it was found that male children exhibited a higher level of external aggression than female children, while there was no significant difference between male and female children in terms of relational aggression. Secondly, analysis of variables such as children`s temperaments and domestic environments revealed that fathers` anti-social behaviors, the adaptability of young children`s temperaments and mothers` depression tendency have significant explanatory adequacies for young children`s relational aggression. Furthermore, gender difference adaptability, activity and emotionality of young children`s temperaments, in addition to parental marital conflicts, also have significant explanatory adequacies for young children`s external aggression.
A Study in Compulsive Buying Behaviors and Internet Addiction among E-Commerce Users between the Ages of 20~30
Kang, Lee-Ju ; Lee, Young-Ae ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 48, issue 1, 2010, Pages 67~81
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2010.48.1.067
Consumer researchers found that compulsive buying was a part of a category of compulsive consumption that was interrelated to addictive and repetitive behaviors. The present study empirically examined the co-morbidity of compulsive buying and Internet addiction among e-commerce users in terms of consumption disorders. Although the prevalence of Internet use and on-line sales remarkably increase in recent years, almost no study examines on-line compulsive buying behavior. This study explored the link between compulsive buying and Internet addiction among e-commerce users, and investigated the characteristics of on-line shoppers with respect to two forms of compulsive consumption, which were divided into compulsive buying and Internet addiction. Additionally, factors that related to compulsive buying behaviors among e-commerce users were also examined. The present research was conducted using a convenience sample of 394 young adults between the ages of 20-30, and the Faber and O`Guinn`s DSCB scale and the Widyanto`s Internet addiction scale (IA) were used. Confirmatory factor analyses were utilized to evaluate the structure of the DSCB and IA, and a Probit model was used to examine determinants for the compulsive buying behaviors of e-commerce users. E-commerce users were classified into four groups; high compulsion and high addiction, low compulsion and low addiction, high compulsion and low addiction, and low compulsion and high addiction. Consumers with high compulsion and high addiction spent higher amounts of money on their on-line purchases and were frequently connected with the Internet compared to the three other consumer groups. Consumers with compulsive buying behaviors were also found to have significantly greater Internet addiction tendencies than typical buyers. Compulsive buyers were more likely to engage in Internet addiction and the number of purchasing via on-line shopping mall, and had higher materialism. Policy implications and suggestions for consumer education programs were discussed.

Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 48, issue 1, 2010, Pages 83~96
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2010.48.1.083
This study was conducted to derive useful predictive variations for the qualitative supply of homes to provide information to real estate venture businesses and other business owners in neighborhood amenities and significant basic information to housing suppliers and policy makers. For this purpose, a number of apartment dwellers in Seoul were surveyed to examine their housing satisfaction, difference in housing satisfaction according to variables, and any relevant correlations. In detail, 500 apartment dwellers in Seoul were surveyed from September 1, 2009 to September 20, 2009 to gather resources that were processed through SPSS 14.0 to find percentage of frequency, mean, standard deviations, t-test, ANOVA, and Duncan Multiple Ranger`s Test. The following were the findings of this study: First, housing satisfaction of apartment dwellers in Seoul was above average with the highest satisfaction with neighborhood environment. Second, satisfaction with amenities was significantly affected by dweller-related variables. Gangnam dwellers were more satisfied with housing environment and community environment than Gangbuk dwellers. By age, people in 20s and 30s showed high satisfaction with housing environment. Satisfaction with community environment was high among 20s, 30s and 40s. Satisfaction with management conditions was high among 20s. Also, satisfaction was high when housing period was between 1 and 10 years. By size, dwellers in 40py or larger homes showed high satisfaction with housing environment and management conditions. Dwellers in 30py and 40py or larger homes were satisfied with community environment. By ownership, dwellers with ownership of their homes showed high satisfaction. Third, there was a significant difference in satisfaction with neighborhood and social environments according to dweller-related variables. By region, dwellers of Gangnam area showed high satisfaction with neighborhood environment. By age, people in 20s, 30s and 40s showed high satisfaction with neighborhood environment. Also, satisfaction with neighborhood environment was high when housing period was around 10 years. By size, dwellers in 30py and 40py or larger homes were satisfied with neighborhood and social environments. Fourth, there was a close correlation between satisfaction with housing environment and satisfaction with community environment, and between satisfaction with community environment and satisfaction with management conditions. Thus, most dwellers that were satisfied with one variable of housing environment showed high satisfaction with other variables.
Market Analysis of Cultural Products Sold in Jeonnam Cultural Tourism Festivals
Lee, Mi-Sook ; Chung, Kyung-Hee ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 48, issue 1, 2010, Pages 97~110
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2010.48.1.097
The purpose of this study was to identify development strategies of high value-added cultural products in order to help promote Jeonnam cultural tourism festivals. In order to achieve this purpose, we carried out a market survey of cultural products sold in cultural tourism festivals held successfully within the Jeonnam area.The subjects of this study were local festivals which were labeled as cultural tourism festivals by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism from 2000 to 2008. The results of this study were as follows: Firstly, a store survey was conducted to analyze the categories of products on offer. As a result, the most frequent product was accessories (46.2%), followed by clothing and miscellaneous goods (25.2%), ceramic products (14.8%), interior decoration products (9.1%), and stationery (4.6%). Secondly, in the design motif used for cultural products, most products did not contain festival or local images. Cultural products with festival images made up 47.2% of the range, while only 2.3% of products on offer contained local imagery. The remaining 50.3% of cultural products for sale did not use festival or local images. Finally, in terms of materials used, most products used metal (36.7%), followed by textiles (32.9%), ceramic (13.8%), wood (6.2%), plastic (6.2%), paper (3.6%), and leather (0.2%). For price range, 52.4% of product were equal to or below 10,000 won, followed by 33.1% between 10,000-30,000 won. The results of this study showed that the cultural products of Jeonnam festivals lacked symbolism of the region or festival itself. Furthermore, items and the price ranges were not diverse enough. A possible solution would be to address this short coming, but more importantly, design a marketing and commercial strategy tailored towards the promotion of cultural products which contain both regional and festival imageries.

The data were analyzed by one-way ANOVA, t-test, Pearson`s partial correlation, stepwise multiple regression, and Scheff
test by SPSS PC(version17.0) program. The results were as follows. Firstly, there were no significant differences in young children`s learning readiness, creative trait and personality by children`s age, location, school type, father`s age, mother`s educational level and mother`s job type, while there were significant differences in the creative trait and the subfactor scores of personality by children`s sex, father`s educational level and parents` job type. Secondly, there was a positive partial correlation(r
Identifying the Best Approach to Revitalize High School Culinary Education Curriculum in Korea
Kang, Kyeoung-Shim ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 48, issue 1, 2010, Pages 137~161
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2010.48.1.137
The aim of this study was to identify the most effective methods with which to revitalize Korean high school culinary education. To achieve this aim, a culinary recognition questionnaire survey of 616 students from 9 culinary high schools was carried out. The 9 surveyed schools represented the following of 7 regions: Chungnam, Busan, Incheon, Daegue, Jeonbuk, Gyeongbuk, and Gwangju. Collected data were subjected to descriptive analysis,
-test, t-test, and one-way ANOVA using SPSS(version 14.0). The results of this study are as follows. Culinary practice interest and learning demand of most students were high. 6.8% of students indicated that initial theory learning, followed by video education, and finally live demonstration is an effective teaching methodology. They preferred practicing on actual ingredients as the primary teaching and learning method, nominating technician cooking as the most favorite. As for areas needing improvement in culinary practice education, difficulties with material preparation and insufficient learning hours were identified as prominent factors by 66.8% of respondents. There was unanimous agreement that culinary practice education can be enhanced by highly skilled teachers, while interest for the discipline itself can be fostered by initiating and encouraging cooking participation in the home. Freshmen and special high school students suggested that a cooking related website is necessary to expand the current information interface, which is currently limited to colleagues and employers. In relation to culinary education revitalization, consistent promotion of departments, or high schools that have proven student satisfaction rates and effective culinary curriculum are required. Furthermore, teachers can also aid this process by more effective student pastoral care in order to improve school life satisfaction. However, teacher job satisfaction is an important component of this process, and better employment conditions and remuneration packages reflecting extra work must be considered as part of an attractive teacher-incentive employment policy.
