Maternal Knowledge of Childcare and Its Effects on Mother-Teacher Communication
Ahn, Sun-Hee ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 48, issue 2, 2010, Pages 1~12
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2010.48.2.001
The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationships between maternal knowledge of childcare and mother-teacher communication. The participants consisted of 240 mothers whose children were enrolled at seven childcare centers in Seoul. Respondents were asked to complete a series of questionnaires reporting the important aspects of their childcare, the frequency of mother-teacher communication, and individual characteristics. Information about childcare's structural and procedural characteristics were obtained through interviews with the directors of those centers. The results indicated that mothers only answered 45.5% of questions correctly, and reported a lack of knowledge about childcare services in their respective centers. In particular, mothers didn't have information about caregivers (e.g, education, year of job experience, license, etc). Actual maternal knowledge was significantly correlated with the length of time which mothers were associated with their childcare and the frequency of mother-teacher communication. In addition, there were significant differences in the maternal knowledge regarding childcare services according to mothers' educational level. The results of this study imply that effective parent education programs are needed for mothers who want to enroll their children in childcare centers.
Children's Aggressive/Prosocial Behaviors and Maternal Parenting Behaviors: Children's Emotional Regulation as Mediator
Kim, Ji-Hyun ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 48, issue 2, 2010, Pages 13~22
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2010.48.2.013
This study explored mediating effects of children's emotional regulation between maternal parenting behaviors and children's aggressive/prosocial behaviors. The participants were 1,187 4th, 5th, 6th grade children and their mothers from two elementary schools in Korea. The Maternal Parenting Behaviors Scale(Kim, 2006), the Emotional Regulation Scale(Lee, 1997), and a peer-nomination measure(Crick, 1995; Crick & Grotpeter, 1995) were used. Collected data were subjected to descriptive statistical analysis, Pearson's productive correlation and regression using SPSS(Ver 12.0). Findings revealed that children's self-emotional regulation mediated the effects of mother's physical punishment on children's aggressive behaviors, while children's other-emotional regulation mediated the effect of mother's warm-encouragement, mediation-supervision, and inconsistency on children's prosocial behaviors. In conclusion, children's emotional regulation mediates the effects of maternal parenting behaviors on children's aggressive/prosocial behaviors.
Price Attitude of Apparel Products and Store Choice Behavior According to Vanity Type of College Students
Nam, Mi-Woo ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 48, issue 2, 2010, Pages 23~38
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2010.48.2.023
The objectives of this study were 1) to classify survey respondents according to vanity scales, and 2) to identify price attitude among the classified groups. The participants were 276 university students who were residents in Seoul. Data were analyzed by factor analysis, cluster analysis, and one-way ANOVA. The vanity scales consisted of four factors; physical concern, physical view, achievement concern and achievement view. Based on these four factors, the respondents were classified into three clusters(interested, vain, and self-confident) as an attached group name. There were significant differences in the dimensions of materialism, price attitude and store choice behavior among the clusters. Marketing implications are discussed.
The Influences of Young Children's Emotionality and Inter/Intrapersonal Intelligence on Behavioral Problems
Sung, Mi-Young ; Gwon, Gi-Nam ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 48, issue 2, 2010, Pages 39~49
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2010.48.2.039
This study focused on the links between emotionality, interpersonal and intrapersonal intelligence, and behavior problems in a sample of 185 four- to five-year-old children in kindergarten and daycare centers in Seoul. All variables were measured by the teachers of surveyed children. Collected data were analyzed by Simple Regression and Hierarchical Multiple Regression. The main results of this study were as follows: Firstly, children's positive and negative emotionality each exerted negative and positive effects on their interpersonal and intrapersonal intelligence. Secondly, children's positive emotionality had a negative influence on internalizing behavior problems. On the other hand, children's negative emotionality had a positive influence on internalizing and externalizing behavior problems. Finally, effect of children's positive emotionality on their internalizing behavior problems was totally mediated by interpersonal and intrapersonal intelligence. On the other hand, effect of children's negative emotionality on their internalizing and externalizing behavior problems was partially mediated by their interpersonal and intrapersonal intelligence.

Kim, Ae-Hee ; Yoon, Chong-Hee ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 48, issue 2, 2010, Pages 51~62
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2010.48.2.051
The primary purpose of this study was to employ an ecological model to analyze relative magnitudes of significant predictors affecting school life satisfaction in Korea Science Academy. The instruments used for this study were school life satisfaction Scale, Self-Efficacy Scale, Relationship Skill Scale, Internal Control Scale, Emotional Intelligence Scale, and FACE IV Scale. Data were collected by purposive sampling of 180 students of the Korea Science Academy in Busan, Korea. The data were analyzed by frequency, percentile, mean, standard deviation, Cronbach'
, Pearson's productive correlation, hierarchical regression and stepwise regression, using SPSS 15.0+WIN program package. The results were as follows: 1. The level of school life satisfaction in Korea Science Academy was found to be high(Mean = 4.24, SD = 0.57). 2. Model IV was the most powerful. It explained 49.7% of the school life satisfaction. 3. Relationship with friends(
= .443), with teachers(
= .273), and self-efficacy(
= .201) were significant factors in explaining the school life satisfaction. The three variables explained 49.9% of school life satisfaction.
Preliminary Study on Contents Development and Education of Korean Family Living Culture
Jeong, Young-Keum ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 48, issue 2, 2010, Pages 63~74
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2010.48.2.063
Interest in family living culture is decreasing in Korea, compared to interest in culture technology and culture industry which are rapidly increasing. Although expenditure on cultural activities is generally increasing, activities that are most preferred are concentrated on personal leisure or public performances. This study takes an in-depth look at the underlying issues related to family living culture in order to highlight its necessity and importance to productive family life. For this purpose, the dynamics of past and current family living culture in Korea are analyzed, with a particular focus on the role of education. Trial family living culture program are suggested based on overall findings.
Exploration of a Prototype Drafting Method for Hanbok Chima
Jung, Ok-Im ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 48, issue 2, 2010, Pages 75~83
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2010.48.2.075
Hanbok Chima, a Korean skirt, with large-volume should have an archetypal drawing model for appropriate cultural and historical accuracy. In order to develop new Hanbok Chima archetypal drawings we drew a skirt by connecting height with a design structure adopted from Jeogori, a Korean jacket. As a result, an archetypal drawing was developed from which circumference of lower width of Chima, size of pleats in waist circumference, and length of Chima as well as a scheme of layering Chima and Jeogori can be obtained. In this drawing, width of Chima can increase or decrease naturally according to height. However, in case of same heights and different chest circumferences if 2.5cm of additional value is provided for every 5cm increase in chest circumference, Chima of any size can be made based on this drawing. In conclusion, given the demonstrated practicality of designing a Hanbok Chima with large-volume based on archetypal drawings, it is expected that the results of this study will provide useful scientific data for Korean costume designs.
Analysis of Marker Efficiency According to Blouse Sleeve Design
Park, Woo-Mee ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 48, issue 2, 2010, Pages 85~94
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2010.48.2.085
Comparative analysis of marker efficiency in blouse patterns, based on different sleeve designs, was carried out. Sleeve designs used included set-in-sleeve, laglan sleeve, and epaulet sleeve. The two types of epaulet sleeves, A and B, are based on pattern arrangement methods of center back. Cloth and production conditions are the width of cloth, the number of marking pieces, and the direction for marking deployment. A blouse pattern saved to the PAD CAD System was graded with different sizes and arranged for industrial purpose to calculate the marker efficiency in different conditions. The results were as follows. On the whole, the marker efficiency of small pattern sized set-insleeve was higher than laglan and epaulet sleeve designs. It was also established that marker efficiency is dependent on cloth and production conditions. For small number of marking pieces, efficiency was higher in the condition of 110cm cloth widths compared with that condition of 150cm cloth widths. However the efficiency of large number of marking pieces was higher in the condition of 150cm cloth widths.
Analysis of Individual, Family and School Environment Factors Related to Children's Bullying Behaviors
Kim, Youn-Hwa ; Han, Sae-Young ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 48, issue 2, 2010, Pages 95~111
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2010.48.2.095
We examined gender-specific behaviors in children and classified types of bullying behavior among 1,181 fifth and sixth grade elementary schools students. Differences were identified in individual variables, family environment variables, and school environment variables. Furthermore the behavioral tendencies of those variables towards bullying were also investigated. Collected data were subjected to descriptive and comparative statistical analysis using the SPSS program(Ver 15.0). Results showed that tendency towards bullying was gender specific. Bullying behavior, reinforcing behavior, assistant behavior, and onlooking behavior in boys were influenced by individual factors only. However, defending behavior in boys was influenced by individual and school factors, while victimizing behavior was influenced by individual and family factors. In girls, onlooking behavior was only influenced by individual factors, while reinforcing behavior was influenced by individual and family factors. Bullying behavior, defending behavior, assistant behavior, and victimizing behavior in girls were influenced by individual, family, and school factors.

Kim, Mi-Hyun ; Lee, Jin-Sil ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 48, issue 2, 2010, Pages 113~120
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2010.48.2.113
Quality characteristics effects of adding four different amounts (0%, 1%, 2%, 3%) of Ulleung-Maesil (Prunus mume fruit) powder cookie doughs were examined. pH, water content & bulk density of dough, spread factor, color value, hardness and consumer acceptability of maesil cookies were measured. The pH and water content of freezedried Ulleung-Maesil powder were 2.01 and 6.26%, respectively, while the L, a, b values were 76.14, -1.66 and 28.65, respectively. Although bulk density of the 3% powder group of cookie dough was the highest, its pH value was the lowest compared to the other groups (p < 0.05). Spread factor of the 3% group showed the lowest value among all groups (p < 0.05). Hardness of the control group (i.e, 0%) was significantly higher than the 1%, 2%, 3% groups (p < 0.05), which showed no significant difference among themselves. The
value of cookies increased significantly with increasing Maesil powder content (p < 0.05). The consumer acceptability scores for control and 1% Maesil cookie groups ranked significantly higher than the 2% and 3% groups in overall acceptability, taste, flavor and texture (p < 0.05). In conclusion, our study suggests that small amounts of Ulleung-maesil can add positive attributes to cookies.
Development of a Semi-Quantitative Food Frequency Questionnaire for Assessing the Usual Dietary Intake of Korean Adolescents
Lee, Ji-Eun ; Kim, Jung-Hyun ; Jung, In-Kyung ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 48, issue 2, 2010, Pages 121~134
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2010.48.2.121
This study was performed to develop the semi-quantitative food frequency questionnaire (SQFFQ) for assessing the usual dietary intake of Korean adolescents. For that, we used 24 hour recall data from the 2005 NHANES(the Third Korean National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey). The cumulative percent contribution and cumulative multiple regression coefficients of 17 nutrients(energy, protein, fat, carbohydrate, fiber, calcium, phosphorus, iron, sodium, potassium, vitamin A, retinol,
-carotene, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin C) of each food were computed. Among 687 food items, 265 food items were selected and grouped depending on similarities in ingredients, nutrient profiles, and/or culinary usage and re-added food items which were excluded for seasonal effect. Finally, total 19 food groups, 87 food items, were included in SQFFQ. Food intake frequency was quantified using nine categories. The portion size was classified depending on the average size of each selected food item. Each portion size was then categorized as one of three amounts: small (0.5 times), medium (1 times), and large (1.5 times). The SQFFQ covered 91.9% of the intake of 17 nutrients in 2005 NHANES and 86.6% in 2001 NHANES. Therefore, by testing the validity of developed SQFFQ using nutrient intakes, this list was valid to evaluate the usual daily intake in Korean adolescents.
An Exploratory Study on the Factors Related to Women's Voluntary Ever-Singleness: Focusing on Marriage and Family Values
Kang, Eun-Young ; Chin, Mee-Jung ; Ok, Sun-Wha ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 48, issue 2, 2010, Pages 135~144
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2010.48.2.135
This study explores whether or not marriage and other family values operate as factors that influence the willingness of women to voluntarily remain ever-single. The study includes as variables the sub-fields of marriage and family values that consist of traditional gender role awareness, freedom in sexual attitude, open outlook on marriage, familism, an acceptance of diverse families, fear of marriage, and assignment of value to extramarital factors. Participants of this study were 259 women in their twenties to forties with no experience of marriage, which were selected from the data used in the Korean Women's Development Institute's Investigation of Single Households(2007). Upon inserting value-related variables and sociodemographic variables into a binomial logistic model for analysis, age, open outlook on marriage, assigned value on extramarital factors, and an acceptance of diverse families were shown to be factors influencing the willingness of women to remain ever-single. That is, as the age spectrum is lower, outlook on marriage is open, more values are granted on the extramarital factors, and the degree of an acceptance of diverse views on family is higher, the chances that women would remain ever-single voluntarily were shown to increase.
