DOI : 10.6115/khea.2010.48.3.001
We investigated the effects of maternal parenting behaviors, children`s emotional regulation, and stress coping strategies on gender-specific children`s behavioral problems. The participants were 191,
graders and their mothers from four elementary schools in Seoul and Kyung-gi province. Collected data were analyzed by descriptive statistics and hierarchical regressions. The major findings were summarized as follows: (1) Active coping strategies explained boys` aggressive behaviors, (2) mother`s warm-encouragement parenting behaviors and active coping strategies explained boys` delinquent behaviors, (3) mother`s warm-encouragement parenting behaviors explained boys` withdrawn behaviors, and (4) mother`s mediation-supervision parenting behaviors and negative emotionality explained girls` aggressive behaviors. In conclusion, maternal parenting behaviors, children`s emotional regulation and stress coping strategies have gender-specific influence on children`s behavioral problems.

DOI : 10.6115/khea.2010.48.3.015
The objective of this study is to identify the relationship quality and relationship benefit, which has greater explanatory power in predicting fashion consumers` future loyalty. This study is particularly interested in the different explanatory power of each relationship quality with various relationship partners of fashion consumers. The participants were 507 female consumers over 20 years old and they responed questionnaire. The result showed that relationship quality types and relationship benefits having greater explanatory power in predicting consumers` loyal relationship intention varied with multi-loyal relations. Consumers` intention to be loyal to an apparel brand and apparel company was more explained by self attachment than by any other relationship quality types, whereas the intention to be loyal to specific department store was predicted by low involved relationship quality types such as habitual alternative and compensational bind. Trusted intimacy was the only relationship quality type that was significant in predicting consumers` intention to be loyal to salesperson in the future. Among relationship benefits, the influence of convenience benefit was significant in predicting consumers` future loyalty in most relations.

Hwang, Eun-Hee ; Lee, Hyun ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 48, issue 3, 2010, Pages 31~41
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2010.48.3.031
This study analyzes the difficulties that student teachers, beginning teachers and experienced teachers face in the field of kindergarten, and urgent support requests. The total of participants was 372 of this number, 122 were student teachers, 118 were beginning teachers and 132 were experienced teachers. The results showed the difference in difficulties and the needed support requests among student teachers, beginning teachers and experienced teachers. Student teachers had the difficulty of time management, but beginning teachers and experienced teachers had trouble due to the nonexistence of assistant teachers. Student teachers required teaching strategies for starting relationships with children within responsibility. Beginning teachers and experienced teachers regarded the plan, practice, and evaluation of a program as the most needed support request. Collectively, the results revealed that expansion of the practice period is necessary for student teachers so that they can gain experience with children, parents, and the children`s education institution with various opportunities as a learning course.

Moon, Han-Na ; Lee, Hee-Sook ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 48, issue 3, 2010, Pages 71~86
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2010.48.3.071
The purpose of this study was to find the characteristics of university education expenditure and how university education expenditure affected household finance such as total household expenditure after excluding education expenditure, savings, and debts respectively. The data were drawn from the 8th Korean Labor & Income Panel Study conducted by the Korean Labor Institute, and 563 households with children attending university were selected. The t-test, F-test (Duncan`s multiple range test as post hoc test), OLS, and Heckman`s two-step estimation were utilized by SAS 9.1 and SPSS 12.0 for Windows. The results were as follows: First, average annual tuition was found to be 6,170,000won(21.5% of total annual household expenditures) and average annual private education expenses were 4,920,000won(15.9% of total annual household expenditures). Second, the higher the household income levels, the more spent on university education, whereas the higher the household income level, the lower the household expenditure-to-university education ratio. Third, tuition and private education expenses had a negative impact on household expenditures after excluding education expenditure.

Ahn, Sun-Hee ; Kim, Ji-Eun ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 48, issue 3, 2010, Pages 87~97
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2010.48.3.087
The purpose of this study was to investigate the basic materials for enhancing the professionalism of 51 infant/toddler teachers through in-depth interview about the actual condition of child care centers. The results were as follows: First, the infant/toddler teachers got less credits of young child care and education subjects than day care teachers did. The current criteria for qualification of infant/toddler teachers was not appropriate for providing the child care services. An efficient and substantial curriculum must be designed to facilitate the day care services for infant/toddler teachers. Second, the infant/toddler teachers recognized that their roles were similar to child care teachers. The curriculum and practice must encourage and nurture the characters, beliefs, and dispositions of infant/toddler teachers. Third, it is necessary to review the various problems to enhance the professionalism of infant/toddler teachers. Several suggestions for enhancing the professionalism are discussed.

Yu, Nan-Sook ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 48, issue 3, 2010, Pages 99~114
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2010.48.3.099
This study explored the socialization of novice Home Economics(HE) teachers employing a qualitative research method. Data was collected through in-depth interviews with four novice HE teachers from secondary schools. The collected data was analyzed inductively by NVivo, a kind of CAQDAS. The following analysis was organized around three stages of teachers` careers: first, as for influences on teacher socialization prior to formal teacher education, their experiences on `apprenticeship of observation` provided them both positive and negative role models; second, as for the socialization role of pre-service teacher education, they mentioned that college courses were poorly connected to classroom realities with only a few helpful lectures on HE Education; third, as for socialization in the workplace and its culture, the novice HE teachers were confronted with many kinds of problems including isolation in the classroom, in-service training programs not geared to novices, an overwhelming workload, and so on. Because of these problems, they yearned for and also formed networks with other HE teachers in order to overcome their limitations. The findings supported the notion that interactive and dialectical processes exist during all stages of HE teachers` careers. This study suggests that the teacher in-service training programs are more relevant, and that the introduction of mentoring programs and classroom manuals and teacher manuals would be helpful in practice. These innovations call for cooperation between universities and provincial offices of education for teachers` professional success in teacher socialization.
