A Study on Life Satisfaction of Married Male Postal Delivery Workers
Hong, Seong-Nam ; Sung, Mi-Ai ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 48, issue 10, 2010, Pages 1~10
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2010.48.10.001
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of personal, family, and job characteristics on married male postal delivery workers' overall life satisfaction. For this purpose, we surveyed 263 married male postal delivery workers between October 1st to 21st, 2008, and analyzed the data with multiple regression analysis. The results of this study were as follows: First, postal workers earned a low level of income, and their quality of health was not good relative to their age. They had severe work-family conflict, but could support and communicate with colleagues well. Second, even though they felt little opportunities and difficulties in lives, they moderately satisfied with everyday lives. Third, 43% of their satisfaction was explained by personal, family, and job related variables. Levels of workfamily conflict (
), work support with colleagues (
), family sharing time (
), and health (
) were especially important variables affecting their satisfaction.

Chung, Da-Wn ; Moon, Hyuk-Jun ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 48, issue 10, 2010, Pages 11~23
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2010.48.10.011
This purpose of this study was to understand how organizational communication affects organizational conflict and commitment. This study was based on a questionnaire survey of 238 teachers working in kindergartens and childcare centers in all parts of Korea except Jeju-do. This research used the following tools: the organizational communication scale, the organizational conflict scale, and the organizational commitment scale. The results were as follows: First, satisfaction with organizational communication showed statistically significant effects(
= -.529, p < .001) on organizational conflict. Secondly, organizational conflict had a negative correlation(
= -.398, p < .001) with organizational competence. Third, organizational conflict had a moderating effect between organizational communication satisfaction and the organizational commitment. Fourth, communication satisfaction had a moderating effect between organizational conflict and organizational commitment.
Mediating Effects of Social Self-Perceptions and Peer-Beliefs on the Relations between Peer Victimization and School Adjustment
Jang, Yoon-Jung ; Shin, Yoo-Lim ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 48, issue 10, 2010, Pages 25~35
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2010.48.10.025
This study examined the potential mediating mechanisms underlying the association between peer victimization and school adjustment. 521 children in the fifth and sixth grades were recruited from primary schools in Korea. Peer nomination and self-reports were used to measure peer victimization, cognitive representations, and school avoidance. Academic achievement records were obtained from official school records. The findings indicated that peer victimization contributed to school avoidance and academic achievement by different pathways. The association between peer victimization and school avoidance was indirectly mediated by perceptions of the self and peers. In contrast, peer victimization was directly associated with academic achievement.
Apparel Purchase Behaviors and Image Preferences of Preteen Girls and Their Mothers: Considering Preteen Girls' BMI and Body Image
Moon, Hee-Kang ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 48, issue 10, 2010, Pages 37~49
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2010.48.10.037
The purpose of this study was to identify preteen girls and their mothers' apparel image preference and apparel purchase behavior. This study was particularly interested in verifying the influencing factors of plus size preteen girls' apparel choice by investigating the correlations between preteens' physical characteristic and their apparel related variables. Data were obtained from the questionnaire by 190 preteen girls and 120 mothers. The influential power of preteens on apparel purchase decision was greater than that of their mothers, and their preferred apparel images were comfortable/neat, cute/girlish, and mature/chic. Comparing to preteen girls, their mothers preferred comfortable/neat and cute/girlish images to mature/chic apparel image. Their physical maturity levels were significantly correlated with apparel image preference. Moreover, plus size preteen girls' interests in appearance and clothing was higher than that of normal weight preteen girls, this implied potentiality in apparel market for plus size preteen.
Patterns of Income and Household Expenses Arrangements and Determinants Within Dual-Income Families
Lee, Su-Jin ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 48, issue 10, 2010, Pages 51~64
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2010.48.10.051
The purpose of this study was to demonstrate the patterns of income and household expense arrangements within dual-income families. The data was obtained from the F-GENS Korea Panel Survey of Ochanomizu University. The responses were gathered from both married and unmarried people, primarily in Seoul and the metropolitan area, of ages ranging from 25 to 44. The sample for this study was comprised of data from 399 double-income households. Crosstab and multinominal logistic regression models were used to analyze the data. The results were as follows. First, dual-income families choose a pooling system as their income arrangement. Second, variables determining the income arrangement were the husband's age, school attainment, annual average income, and average working hour per day. Third, variables that affected the household expenses arrangement included the husband's level of schooling attained and the husband’s job type. Fourth, the ideology of the economic community effected both the income and household expenses arrangement.
The Relations of Children's Stress, Self-Esteem, and Subjective Well-Being
Choi, Mi-Kyung ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 48, issue 10, 2010, Pages 65~75
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2010.48.10.065
The main purpose of this study was to examine the relations between Children's stress, self-esteem, and subjective well-being with a sample of 320 elementary school 5th graders (of which 161 were boys and 159 were girls) living in Seoul. They completed questionnaires on Children's stress, self-esteem, and subjective well-being. The results were analyzed by means of Pearson's correlation coefficients and regressions. It was observed that children's stress of studying/mother was negatively related to subjective well-being. Children's self-esteem was positively related to subjective well-being. Children's stress of studying/mother was negatively related to self-esteem. Self-esteem tended to play a perfectly mediating role between children's stress of studying/mother and subjective well-being. These results clearly indicate that children's self-esteem plays a crucial role in improving the levels of children's subjective well-being.
The Effects of Parents' Neglect Behavior and Children's Irrational Belief on Children's Anger Expression Style
Hwang, Yeon-Dug ; Lee, Jin-Suk ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 48, issue 10, 2010, Pages 77~88
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2010.48.10.077
This study examined the effect of parents' neglect behavior and children's irrational beliefs on children's anger expression style. The participants were 379 5th and 6th grade elementary school children. The major findings were as follows. Children tended to perceive higher levels of their parents' cognitive and emotional neglect than physical and home environmental neglect. Boys perceived higher levels of their parents' physical, supervisory and home environmental neglect than girls, and girls showed higher level of excessively self-expecting belief than boys. There were statistically significant correlations between the parents' neglect behavior, their child's irrational beliefs and anger expression style. A regression analysis showed that parents' physical and cognitive neglect were predictors of children's anger control. Children's excessive apprehension and avoidance beliefs were the best predictors of children's anger-in, while children's deterministic belief was the best predictor of children's anger-out. Parents' physical neglect behavior appeared to be powerful predictor.
Predictors of the Developmental Trajectories of Internalizing Problem Behaviors in Adolescents
Oh, Young-Jin ; Kim, Yeong-Hee ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 48, issue 10, 2010, Pages 89~103
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2010.48.10.089
The purpose of this study was to examine the developmental trajectories of adolescents' internalizing problem behaviors. The data came from 3,188 middle school students through their participation in the Korea Youth Panel Survey(KYPS). Adolescents with a high level of internalizing problem behaviors in the first year showed a rapid decline in these behaviors over time, whereas for adolescents with a low level of these behaviors in the first year the decline was slow. The predictors of the developmental trajectories were related to individual variables, such as gender, self-esteem, self-control, stress, self-stigmatization, and academic achievement. The developmental trajectories of adolescents' internalizing problem behaviors were classified into four groups. The predictors of the patterns of developmental trajectories in adolescents' internalizing problem behaviors appeared to be related to individual variables.
Childrearing Expenditure and the Intension to Have the Second Childbirth
Lee, Seong-Lim ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 48, issue 10, 2010, Pages 105~119
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2010.48.10.105
This study investigated the association between the expenditures for childrearing and the intention to have the second childbirth applying the recursive equation models. The major results were as follows. First, more than half of the households with one child did not have an intention to have the second childbirth. Second, about 40% of the household expenditure was spent for childrearing. About 36% of the childrearing expenditure was spent on the childcare and education, and about 64% on purchase of goods and services for child. Third, the variables which had a significant effect on the intention to have the second childbirth were child's age, mother's education, father's income, the private educational expenditure, and consumption expenditure for child. The intention to have the second childbirth did not have a significant effect on the level of childrearing expenditure. The implications for the family policies were suggested.
Persuasion Effects of Scarcity Message in Online Cosmetic Advertising: Focused on Moderating Effect of Product Type
Park, Hyun-Hee ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 48, issue 10, 2010, Pages 121~132
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2010.48.10.121
This study was intended to identify the persuasion effects of online cosmetic advertising according to scarcity message type and product type. For the experiment, 4 stimuli were developed as experimental stimuli for the 2(scarcity message type: quantity scarcity message vs distinctiveness scarcity message) X 2(product type: hedonic product vs utilitarian product) factorial design. Participants were 160 students, and they allocated 40 students in each group. They responded a questionnaire. The results were as follows. First, distinctiveness scarcity message showed more effective than quantity scarcity message in advertising attitude, product attitude, brand attitude, and purchase intention. Second, hedonic product showed more effective than utilitarian product in advertising attitude, product attitude, brand attitude, advertising attention, click-through intention, and purchase intention. Third, there was interaction effect according to scarcity message type and product type on the aspect of advertising attitude, advertisement attention, and click-through intention.
Validation of The Parent Version of Penn Interactive Peer Play Scale for Young Children
Choi, Hye-Yeong ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 48, issue 10, 2010, Pages 133~141
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2010.48.10.133
The purpose of this study was to investigate the construct validity of the Penn Interactive Peer Play Scale on the parent version. The participants of this study were 231 children in the Seoul and Gyeonggi provincial areas. The instruments included the 32-item exploratory PIPPS (Choi & Shin, 2008), and the Preschool Behavior Questionnaire (PBQ; Park, 1992). The data were analyzed by descriptive statistics, factor analysis, Pearson's r and Cronbach
. The results were as follows. First, the PIPPPS on the parent version was validated with supporting three factors: Play Disruption, Play Disconnection and Play Interaction with 30 items. The sub-factors of the PIPPS were related with those of the PBQ as criterion measurements. The reliability coefficients of the sub-factors of the PIPPS were ranged from .78 to .82.

Lim, Ju-Yong ; Oh, Yoon-Ja ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 48, issue 10, 2010, Pages 143~157
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2010.48.10.143
This study performed to develop a basic framework of adolescent's perceptions about multicultural families, the children of multicultural families, the impacts of cultural exchange on cultural diversity, and multicultural efficacy. The participants were 368 students from four high schools in the Seoul area. The data were analysyed by ANOVA, Duncan-test, and multiple regression. The results revealed significant differences; perceptions of the multicultural family was the highest among those who believed the perceptions would increase, while the lowest among those believing to decrease. Perceptions of multicultural efficacy showed significant differences in thought about education for understanding other country people, the multi media experiences of multicultural families, knowledge about the multiculture, and thought about an increasing number of multicultural families. There were significant correlations among perceptions about the multicultural family, the children in the multicultural family, the impacts of cultural exchange on cultural diversity, and efficacy of the multicultural environment.
