This study investigated how the characteristics of female international marriage immigrants, their husbands, their children, and their families affected their parenting self-efficacy, using a sample of 187 female international marriage immigrants, from China, the Philippines, or Vietnam, now living in Pusan and Gyungnam, Korea. We used questionnaires were based on the studies by Choe & Chung (2001), Shin (1997), Lee (1996), and Lee & Song (1991), and with the addition of demographic characteristics. Analysis results showed that the mother`s parenting self-efficacy subscales correlated positively with mother`s educational level, social support, and Korean language level; husband`s educational level; and family income, and negatively with mother`s depression, husband`s age, and mother`s acculturative stress.

It was expected that the child care teachers would feel less burnout if they have higher ego-resilience and lower emotional labor compared to those with lower ego-resilience and higher emotional labor. A survey was administered to 218 child care teachers in Seoul area using Maslach Burnout Inventory, California Personality Inventory, and Emotional Labor Scale. Data were analyzed with descriptive statistics and multiple regression using SPSS PC program(12.0 version). Major findings were as follows: First, child care teachers` burnout was not so high. Second, teacher`s burnout was different depending on their personal factors such as age, marriage, and income. Last, child care teachers` burnout was explained by their emotional labor and egoresilience.

We collected and analyzed the article contents of two design magazines, from their issues of January 2000 through December 2009, for a total of 87 cases. The results were as follows. First, the important motives for applying traditional elements to current living spaces were individual tastes, preference for a secluded life, and the users` childhood memories. Second, the most frequently used traditional element was traditional structure. Others were traditional spatial compositions and the use of natural materials. The two main purposes for renovating a space or constructing a building were to preserve traditional ambience or to add convenience and practical use to it. Third, the most frequently mentioned advantages of traditional elements were their environment-friendly characteristics, such as connecting to nature and using natural materials. Fourth, the users preferred, in order, Ma-dang, natural environments, doors/windows of various types and multiple functions, Toet-maru, Dae-cheong, and Nu-maru.

Woo, Su-Jung ; Lee, Young ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 48, issue 7, 2010, Pages 89~97
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2010.48.7.089
The present study investigated the parenting alliance`s mediating effects on the relationship between adult attachment and marital satisfaction. The participants were 157 married parents of young children(77 men and 80 women). We used the Experiences in Close Relationships Scales (Kim & Lee, 2005), Quality Marriage Index (Jang, 2001), and Parenting Alliance Inventory (Abidin, 1988) and analyzed data using descriptive statistics, Pearson`s correlation, and regression analysis, via SPSS PC program(17.0 version). The results revealed that the effects of married males` avoidant dimension on marital satisfaction were partially mediated by their wives` parenting alliance. The effects of married females` anxious dimension on marital satisfaction were totally mediated, and the effects of married females` avoidant dimension on marital satisfaction were partially mediated, by their husbands` parenting alliance. In conclusion, the parenting alliance mediates the effects of adult attachment on marital satisfaction in couples with young children.
