Pak, Bong-Sun ; Kim, Yeong-Hee ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 48, issue 9, 2010, Pages 1~11
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2010.48.9.001
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of family-of-origin differentiation, ego identity, and attitudes toward children on marital intimacy among married men and women. The participants of this study were 261 married men and 274 married women whose marital period were less than 14 years, and whose first child was less than 12 years old and who were living in Chungbuk Province. Data were analyzed by frequency, percentages, ttest, F-test with Tukey test for post-hoc test, Cronbach
for reliability analysis, factor analysis, and Pearson`s correlation using the SPSS program(12.0 version). The model test was done with analysis of correlational matrix by the AMOS 5.0 package using a maximum likelihood estimation. Family of origin differentiation, ego identity, and attitude toward children had different effects on marital intimacy according to gender. Also, ego identity was the strongest predictor of men`s marital intimacy whereas attitude was the strongest for women`s marital intimacy.

Sung, Mi-Ai ; Choi, Sae-Eun ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 48, issue 9, 2010, Pages 13~25
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2010.48.9.013
This study examined the effects of individual, family, and career characteristics on retirees` life satisfaction and investigated the interactive effect of gender on the relations between retirement and life satisfaction. Data were drawn from 2 waves of Korean Retirement and Income Study (KReIS). The analytic sample included 158 retired men and 145 retired women in the second wave and all of whom had worked at the first wave. The results indicated that psychological and physical health conditions significantly affected retirees` life satisfaction. Also, family characteristics in terms of a spouse`s work status and children`s developmental stages, such as marriage and employment, influenced retirees` life satisfaction. Financial support from adult children living elsewhere also significantly affected retiree`s life satisfaction. The interaction effect of gender was only found in effects of living arrangement (living alone/with a spouse vs. multiple generations living together) on retirees` life satisfaction.

Various family-friendly policies have been put into place for working mothers, but their paid and household workloads have not decreased. Many women have experienced career interruptions due to care work, so possible solutions to the problem of care work are needed. The purpose of this study was to explore the possibility of applying the social enterprise model to care work. Definitions, types, and development processes in social enterprise in several nations were discussed for the purpose of this study. Second, problems of care work in Korean households and national support for them are surveyed. Public institutions` contributions in child-care and family elder care and the alternatives for solving problems thereof were discussed. Third, several principles and advantages of applying social enterprise models to care work were suggested. Finally, this study discussed what a healthy family support center can do to reduce the workload of a household through social enterprises. This center can be a testing place that supports care work by various means from small volunteering groups to social enterprise according to profit level.

The purpose of this research was to elucidate the relevance of the area of home economics in practical arts (technology & home economics) curriculum to green growth education, finding applicable cases of green growth education content in the field of home economics education. Given this base, we performed a survey with people who majored in home economics education and elementary school teachers on how green growth education related to their education. We studied applied cases and performed a survey by open-ended questions that extracts the green growth education content. In synthesizing the results of these studies so far, we have concluded that home economics education is much related to green growth education, and that with a change of people`s conceptions when relating school life to household life, home economics can be a very useful subject that can lead to the practice of the green growth education.

Chung, Moon-Ja ; Yuh, Jong-Il ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 48, issue 9, 2010, Pages 103~111
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2010.48.9.103
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of perceived parental acceptance on social anxiety and depressive symptoms in children. Seven hundred and thirty eight 5th and 6th graders completed questionnaires. Regression analyses indicated that low levels of paternal acceptance was associated with higher social anxiety and depressive symptoms. Gender was a moderator of the effects of maternal acceptance on social anxiety and depressive symptoms. With high levels of maternal acceptance, girls were significantly less likely to report social anxiety and depressive symptoms, compared to boys. These results highlight the important role of parental acceptance in manifestations of social anxiety and depressive symptoms and clarify the relation of maternal acceptance to social anxiety and depressive symptoms as a function of gender.
