Characteristics of Vest Designs in Contemporary Fashion for Women
Kim, Sun-Young ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 49, issue 3, 2011, Pages 1~10
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2011.49.3.001
This paper reports on a study of the morphological design trends and characteristics of vests in contemporary fashion for women. A review of the relevant literature was conducted, and visual images found in various collections displayed in local and foreign papers and on internet web sites over the period 2001 to 2009 were analysed. The analysis of the vest designs showed that 78% had no collar, 41.8% were waist-length, 70.5% used general fabrics of various colors and patterns, 98.2% had a single fastening system, 69.8% used buttons for fastening, and 67.4% were intended to be worn as outwear over inner wear items such as a shirt or blouse. The trends in vest design were characterized by the expression of an androgynous image, by creative diversity and by an escape from traditional forms.

Han, Jun-Ah ; Kim, Ji-Hyun ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 49, issue 3, 2011, Pages 11~21
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2011.49.3.011
The purposes of this study were to explore the gender differences in children's behavior problems, emotional regulation and social support, and to investigate differences between boys and girls in the interrelationships between these kinds of variables. The participants were 189 children in 4 to 6 grades and their teachers from one elementary school in Seoul. The data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, t-test, Pearson's correlation, and multiple regression. The results were as follows: (1) There were statistically significant gender differences in the children's behavior problems, emotional regulation and social support. (2) Children's negative emotion explained boys and girls acting out problems and learning problems. Children's positive emotion regulation explained boys' and girls' shy-anxious and learning problems. Boys, who perceived less support from parents, displayed more acting out behavior, boys who perceived less supports from friends showed more shy-anxious behavior, and boys who perceived less supports from teachers exhibited more learning problems.

Jung, So-Hee ; Yang, Sung-Eun ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 49, issue 3, 2011, Pages 23~37
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2011.49.3.023
This study attempted to examine the influences of achievement pressure from parents and the discrepancy of real self and ideal self on the academic achievement motivation among adolescents. To achieve the purpose of this study, a survey was conducted among 1140 students including 559 middle school students in second grade and 581 high school students in second grade in Seoul and Gyeonggi-do. The results of the study showed that male students were more effected by the achievement pressure from parents than female students and the ideal discrepancy of self-discrepancies had a greate effects on academic achievement motivation regardless of gender. In conclusion, higher achievement pressure and lower ideal discrepancy represented higher academic achievement motivation.

Kim, Tae-Eun ; Chung, Moon-Ja ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 49, issue 3, 2011, Pages 39~53
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2011.49.3.039
The purpose of this study was to develop a 'Solution-Focused Brief Play Therapy' and analyze children's responses to its various therapeutic techniques. The participants were three boys and three girls, all aged between 11 and 10 years, living in an orphanage on the outskirts of Seoul. Each child received 7-10 therapy sessions, each lasting 90 minutes. All sessions were video-taped and recorded verbatim. These data, along with the observational notes recorded by the researcher, were subjected to a qualitative data analysis(Creswell, 2002). The results showed not only that children set their goals and evaluated themselves objectively but also suggested solutions to meet their goals by doing something meaningful to themselves.

In conclusion, We Start home visiting program for infants from low-income families is an effective early intervention program to end intergenerational transition of poverty in Korea.
A Study of the Beautiful Girls' Fashion Styles in the Japan Animations
Choi, Yoo-Jin ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 49, issue 3, 2011, Pages 67~77
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2011.49.3.067
The purpose of this study was to clarify the symbolic meanings of the beautiful girls' character fashion in modern Japanese animations. This study investigated the currency and characteristics of the beautiful girls' characters from the 80's to the present. The fashion style of a beautiful girl's character was categorized into four styles: trendy style, adult style, Lolita style and fantasy style. These fashion styles were analyzed, and as a result, three symbolic meanings of the fashion style of a beautiful girl's character are discussed. Firstly, these occidentalized body styles represented idealized body images that are not traditionally Japanese. Secondly, the adult style (growth) represented coming out, i.e. the desires to develop from a child into an adult. Thirdly, the adult (transformation), Lolita and fantastic styles appealed to maniac consumers, having a "Moe" feeling.

Moon, Chi-Yun ; Lim, Jung-Ha ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 49, issue 3, 2011, Pages 79~86
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2011.49.3.079
The purpose of this study was to examine the relationships between temperament, social support and positive, as well as negative emotions of institutionalized children. The participants were 198 children aged from 10 to 13 years old. They were recruited from 20 childcare facilities in Seoul. Data were analyzed using Cronbach alphas, factor analyses, frequencies, percentiles, t-tests and hierarchical regression analyses. The major findings were as follows: 1) on average, girls showed higher emotionality in temperament compared to boys. Girls reported greater support of school teacher than boys. Boys experienced significantly higher positive emotions than girls, while girls reported significantly higher negative emotions than boys. 2) Positive emotions were influenced by the support of the institutionalized family as well as school teachers. Negative emotions were influenced by the support of the institutionalized family.

Cho, Song-Yon ; Kim, Hye-Won ; Kim, Min ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 49, issue 3, 2011, Pages 87~98
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2011.49.3.087
The purpose of this study was to examine the life satisfaction of adolescents in the ecological contexts of their individual, family, school, and social-cultural experiences. The participants were 1,099 middle and high school students in Chungnam-do. Instruments were the Satisfaction with Life Scale, Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale, Parent-Adolescent Communication Inventory, the School Life Satisfaction Scale, and Social-Cultural Satisfaction Scale. Data analysis involved the use of descriptive statistics, t- and F-tests, Duncan's multiple range test, product-moment correlations, multiple regression, Cronbach's
, and factor analysis. Results were as follows: Firstly, middle school students showed the highest levels of life satisfaction, and vocational high school students reported the lowest levels. Also, life satisfaction was inversely related to school grades. Secondly, for all the students, life satisfaction was positive correlated with self-esteem, open communication with parents, school life satisfaction, and social-cultural satisfaction. Lastly, open communication with parents and overall satisfaction with life at school explained more of the variance in adolescent life satisfaction than any other factors.
Relations between Parenting-Related Variables and Mother-Infant Interactive Behaviors
Yang, Ha-Young ; ParkChoi, Hye-Won ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 49, issue 3, 2011, Pages 99~111
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2011.49.3.099
Relations between mother-infant interactive behaviors and parenting-related variables were analyzed in a sample of 72 infants (35 boys and 37 girls, average age=31 mo.) and their mothers in Ulsan, Korea. Parents' views on children, parenting stress, fathers' participation in parenting and social support were measured using questionnaires and mother-infant interactive behaviors were observed using the 3-bags test. Among the parenting-related variables, parents' views on children were related significantly with mothers' emotional expressions & infant's participation with mothers. Social support was correlated with mother's behaviors, including positive rewards and emotional expressions. Mother-infant interactive behaviors were closely correlated with one another: Mothers' positive behaviors such as overall reactivity and cognitive stimulation were correlated positively with infants' positive behaviors, including sustained attention and positive affect. Future studies will provide us with greater insights into the mechanisms underlying the effects of these parenting-related variables on infant behavior and development.

Oh, Seol-Young ; Chun, Jong-Suk ; Shin, Se-Mi ; Lee, Min-Ji ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 49, issue 3, 2011, Pages 113~121
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2011.49.3.113
This study developed a method of calculating dynamic wearing ease (DWE) to make patterns for coverall work clothing. The DWE was measured from 3D body scan data of women in their 20's (n = 10). The body postures adopted for measuring the DWE were sitting and deep bending postures. Three types of experimental patterns (A, B, C) were developed. The DWE was applied at the waist and hip lines of the pattern. The location and size of the DWE varied from one pattern to another. For pattern B, DWE of 8.8cm was applied at the back of the waistline. For pattern C, 5.3cm was applied at the waist for the center back line, and 3.5cm was applied at the under hip level. The comfort of the experimental clothing was evaluated in six body postures. The results showed that patterns B and C were comfortable at the crotch, shoulders, and arm pits. Pattern C was comfortable at the hip and crotch areas in the arms lifting-up posture and the stepping-up posture. The appearance and fit of the experimental clothing were evaluated by the panels. Patterns B and C fitted better than pattern A at the abdomen. The results suggest that DWE should be applied at the waist and hip levels for making coverall work clothing patterns.
