The Impact of Personal Traits, Family Characteristics, and Job Satisfaction on the Psychological Well-Being of Middle Aged Men from the Baby Boomer Generation Working in Large Corporations
Jang, Mi-Ja ; Kim, Deuk-Sung ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 49, issue 2, 2011, Pages 1~11
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2011.49.2.001
This research surveyed middle aged men, who were from the `baby boomer generation` and worked for large corporations in Seoul, Busan, Ulsan, Cheonan, Yeoju, Sugi, Suwon and Daejon. A total of 166 subjects were included in the final analysis. The major findings were as follows: first, most participants worked in administrative management and were professionals with high educational levels and incomes. Second, the middle aged men were found to enjoy high psychological well-being when they had high ego-resilience, when they had high satisfaction with fatherhood, when they expressed themselves more(emotional expression), when they had higher job satisfaction, and when they had experienced less of a burden in supporting their parents. Marital satisfaction did not affect their psychological well-being.

The purpose of this study was to analyze the trend of dietary lifestyle-related research articles during the period from 1990 to 2009. A total of 44 articles were identified and subjected to content analysis. Article content was coded according to subject of study, age of respondents, sample size, type of sample, statistical methods used and location of study. The most important type of content category was the study subject, and this was subdivided into research related to 1) dietary pattern, 2) health, 3) dining spaces, 4) foods, 5) restaurant/institutional foodservices, and 6) beverage-related topics. The most common subject was restaurant/institutional foodservice-related research (59.1% of articles), followed by beverage-related research (20.5%). These two subjects accounted for approximately 80% of all the 44 articles reviewed.

Rim, Hyo-Shin ; Rha, Jong-Hay ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 49, issue 2, 2011, Pages 27~36
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2011.49.2.027
This study dealt with free play activities in the curricula of childcare centers in Daejeon area. 29 teachers from 21 day care centers were interviewed individually to obtain an understanding of teachers perceptions and conflicting views about play activity in the context of different day care curricula. The data were analysed qualitatively, using categorization and key word classification, frequency analyses and chi-squared tests. The results were as follows: (1) play-oriented curricula included sufficient play time and planned play activities in terms of the children`s development. Children`s freedom in play, optimum intercession by teachers, and interrelating activities between activity areas were included. In mixed curricula, children`s freedoms were limited in many cases, and interrelating play between activity areas was hardly found. Formal lesson-oriented curricula resulted unplanned play activities and teachers` passive intercession of play. (2) Most teachers believed that play activities were more important to a child`s development than formal lessons.
A Study of Event-Related Brain Potentials in Children`s Korean Sentence Comprehension
Choi, In-Hwa ; Yi, Soon-Hyung ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 49, issue 2, 2011, Pages 37~49
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2011.49.2.037
The present study investigated the semantic and syntactic processes in Korean children`s sentence comprehension by measuring event-related brain potentials(ERPs). The subjects were 18 right-handed, healthy native Korean children(1st graders), who were free from any hearing problems. While the children listened to the auditory sentence stimuli, ERPs were recorded with the electrodes mounted in a `Quik-Cap` on the subject`s head. The ERP data were recorded and analyzed using the NeuroScan 4.3 and EEGLABv6.03b programs. For statistical analyses, descriptive statistics, three-way repeated measures ANOVA, and t-tests were performed using a SPSS 15.0 PC program. The results indicated that semantic violations elicited a negativity (N400) ranging from 300 to 500 msec. For syntactic violations, children displayed a positivity (P600) ranging from 900 to 1,100 msec. The discovery of N400 and P600 in semantic and syntactic processes respectively, confirmed the suggestion that Indo-European and Korean languages share a common mechanism for sentence comprehension.
Study in Development and Satisfaction of the Family Volunteer Activity Program: Focused on "Sharing Love and Joy with Growing Sprouts" Program and the Participants
Kim, Hye-Ryoung ; Jung, Min-Ja ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 49, issue 2, 2011, Pages 51~62
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2011.49.2.051
The purpose of this study was to develop field programs to activate family volunteering and thereby promote healthy family life. The programs were based on a review of family ecological theories of family volunteering activities. A focus group interview was conducted about satisfaction of the program with five volunteers who were experiencing the same family life cycle. The results of study showed that growing sprouts, which are environmentally friendly activities in family, and family volunteer activities lead to family leisure, table, community sharing cultures and cooperation culture between the family and the community. These effects can ultimately contribute to the creation of a healthy family culture.
The Effect of Tension and Low Self-Control on Cyber Deviation: Analyzing The Mediating Effect of Internet Addiction and Moderating Effect of Anonymity
Nam, Su-Jung ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 49, issue 2, 2011, Pages 63~74
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2011.49.2.063
Tension and self-control are explanatory factors in adolescent delinquency, and internet addiction and anonymity are regarded as factors underlying cyber deviation. The aim of this study was to investigate the interrelationships between these factors and cyber deviation. Participants were 485 middle and high school students in the Jeonbuk region. The results showed that tension and self-control were predictors of cyber deviation and that internet addiction was a mediating variable for both the predictors. Anonymity was found to have a mediating role, but only in respect of the tension-cyber deviation pathway. These findings suggested a number of implications. Firstly, the educational programs on cyber deviation should be different from the existing deviation prevention programs. Secondly, measures to prevent internet addiction are needed for the effective prevention of cyber deviation. Lastly, the finding of a relationship between anonymity and cyber deviation indicates the need to adopt a long-term perspective drawing on values education techniques to develop a code of cyber space ethics for "netizens".
The Mediating Effect of Self-Efficacy on the Relationship between Father`s Child-Rearing Attitude and Children`s Prosocial Behavior
Yang, Kyung-Soo ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 49, issue 2, 2011, Pages 75~84
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2011.49.2.075
The purpose of this study was to investigate the mediating effect of self-efficacy on the relationship between fathers` child-rearing attitude and children`s prosocial behavior. The participants were 410 children aged 3-6 years, who completed scales of the fathers` child-rearing attitude, children`s prosocial behavior, and self-efficacy. The data were analyzed in terms of a hypothesized structural equation model using AMOS 7.0. The results were as following. Firstly, the fathers` child-rearing attitude was found to have a direct effect on children`s prosocial behavior and self-efficacy. Secondly, children`s self-efficacy was also found to affect children`s prosocial behavior directly. Thirdly, children`s self-esteem have a mediated effect on the relationship between fathers` child-rearing attitude and the children`s prosocial behavior.

Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 49, issue 2, 2011, Pages 85~95
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2011.49.2.085
The purpose of this study was to develop and evaluate an attachment improvement program for families adopting an older child. The objectives and contents of this program reflected on the experiences of adopted parents and the characteristics of older-age adoptee children with attachment disruption. The program consisted of three components: parent-child relationship building, parenting skills enhancement for adopted parents, and negative emotions mediation for the older-age adoptees. The subjects of program were eight parent-child dyads. Differences between pre- and post-test data showed statistically significant improvements in the quality of parent-child relationships, communication levels with parents, and the parents` autonomic levels. There was also a reduction in the children`s social problems. The implications of this study were discussed in terms of improving parent-child attachments in families adopting an older child.

Park, Chan-Hwa ; Kim, Gil-Sook ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 49, issue 2, 2011, Pages 97~109
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2011.49.2.097
The purpose of this study was to investigate the reading habits, reading patterns and reading motivation of 362 college students from the capital area majoring in child development or early childhood education. The main findings of this study were as follows. Firstly, 70 percent of students spent less than three hours a week on reading academic or school-related material, and 75 percent spent less than three hours a week on independent or recreational reading. Students most preferred reading the "cultural" genre and least preferred reading the "human life(spiritual)" genre. The "cultural" and the "human life(spiritual)" genres also represented the most and least frequently read genres, respectively. Secondly, students presented high-level reading patterns, in that they previewed the reading material before reading, understood the meaning of it during reading, and shared their reading experience with others after reading. Thirdly, the average reading motivation levels scored near the midpoint on a five-point scale. Fourthly, students with higher reading motivation levels displayed higher reading frequencies and preference levels for each genre, with the exception of the "fiction and humor" genre. Moreover, students with higher levels of reading motivation received higher ratings for their reading patterns.
