Social Behaviors, Psychosocial Adjustments, and Language Ability of Aggressive Victims, Passive Victims, and Bullies in Preschool Children
Shin, Yoo-Lim ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 49, issue 6, 2011, Pages 1~12
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2011.49.6.001
This study investigated prevalence rates and differences in social behaviors, psychosocial adjustments, and language ability of preschool children who engaged in bully/victim subgroups: aggressive victims, passive victims, bullies, and non-involved. The participants were 297 preschool children and their teachers in Jeju City. The teachers measured children`s peer victimization, social behaviors, and teacher-child relationships. Children`s language ability and self-concept were also assessed by individual interview. There were significant differences in social behaviors, psychosocial adjustments, and language ability among the bully/victim subgroups. Aggressive victims included in a high risk group characterized by a high level of aggression, ADHD, peer rejection as well as conflicted relationships with teachers. Moreover, they had limited language ability. The findings highlight behavioral heterogeneity among the bully/victim subgroups in early childhood.

Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 49, issue 6, 2011, Pages 23~37
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2011.49.6.023
This research tried to identify how different types of environments related with work-family reconciliation effects the amount of resource exchange between working mothers and their child. In this study, we applied theoretical concepts such as `Defamiliarization`(rights of mothers to access the work force without any environmental obstacles) and `Familiarization`(a movement trying to balance work with family and child). This study is an analysis of valid questionnaires filled out by 220 female respondent`s who was holding a job and also had children attending elementary, middle, or high school at the time answering the survey questionnaire. Results of this survey are as follows. Mother`s attitudes toward familiarization and child`s school environments related with defamiliarization had critical effects on mother`s perceived resource exchange. And in a further analysis, among the clustered groups of mothers the group which consists of mothers who try to work hardly on both work and family had the highest degree of the resource supplies to their child.
The Development of Injury Risk Behavior of Young Children
Kim, Hye-Gum ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 49, issue 6, 2011, Pages 39~46
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2011.49.6.039
This study was to examine the level of cognition, emotion, and social context of young children`s injury risk behavior according to age and gender. The participants were 150 children of 3 to 5 years old(boys were 75 and girls were 75). The data were analyzed using descriptive statistics and two-way ANOVA. The results were as follows; 1) 5 year old children knew potential injury risk better than 3 or 4 year old children. 2) Boys felt less afraid than girls on risk situation. 3) As age increased, the score of social context was higher. The score of social context of boys was higher than that of girls.
The Influence of Perception of Physical Attractiveness on Health Promoting Behavior and Appearance Management Behavior
Lee, Eun-Sil ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 49, issue 6, 2011, Pages 47~56
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2011.49.6.047
The purpose of this study was to investigate the influence of perception of physical attractiveness and demographic variables on health promoting behavior and appearance management behavior. This study used a questionnaire. The participants were 325 adult women. The results were as follows. As they were younger, their perception of physical attractiveness was more positive, and they were a tendency to manage their appearance with clothing, makeup, skin care, and hair style more active. As they were older, they perceived higher in the mental and physical health promoting behavior. The higher perception of physical attractiveness people had, the higher awareness of mental health promoting behavior they had. Finally, appearance management behaviors such as clothing, cosmetics, and body care were found to have a positive effect on physical health promoting behavior.
The Influence of Self-Related & Parental Factors on the Depression of Adolescents from a Low Social Economic Status Background
Moon, Ji-Hye ; Yoon, Hye-Kyung ; Park, Hye-Won ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 49, issue 6, 2011, Pages 57~66
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2011.49.6.057
This study investigated the self-related and parental factors that influence depression in 204 adolescents from a low social economic status background. The self-related factors were self-trust and emotional regulation, and the parental factors were parental concern and domestic violence. The results showed that girls were more likely to be depressive, but had better emotional regulations and a closer relationship with their parents than boys. There was no significant difference between age groups with respect to parental concern, self-trust and emotion regulation. It was also found by regression analyses that girls` depression was predicted by both emotional regulation and parental concern while boys` depression was predicted only by self-trust. The finding suggested that intervention for boys` depression has to focus more on intrapersonal factors, but should emphasize interpersonal factors for girls.

Park, Shin-Jin ; Lee, Young ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 49, issue 6, 2011, Pages 67~83
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2011.49.6.067
The purposes of this study were to a develop a preventive tailored early intervention program and to investigate the effects of the program on the quality of parenting for low income families. The subjects were eighty five infants, aged 13 to 32 months, and their mothers. Of the 85 mother-infant dyads, 42 dyads were randomly assigned to the experimental group and 43 dyads to the control group. To prevent the risks of the adverse development of infants from low income families a tailored intervention program was created based upon the transactional model. This emphasized the quality of the home environment and of the daily mother-infant interaction. The risk factors were assessed and progress monitoring was undertaken for the preventive tailored intervention treatment. In order to assess the effects of the program, HOME, the NCAST Teaching Scale and the Parenting Stress Index/Short From were used. The collected data were analyzed with descriptive statistics, ANCOVA, and the McNemar test. The experimental group showed a significant increase in performance and higher scores than the control group on the scores from HOME, and the NCAST Teaching Scale and significant decrease and lower scores in the Parenting Stress Index(SF).

Lee, Hwa-Sun ; Choe, In-Soo ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 49, issue 6, 2011, Pages 85~94
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2011.49.6.085
The purpose of this study was to validate the Korean Family Support & Challenge Questionnaire (K-SCQ), which is designed to assess family complexity in Children. There were 258 pre-test participants in this study and 498 senior students who were in elementary school. Results from the pre-test suggested us to use Likert scale over a dichotomous agree or disagree scale and positively items over negative ones. Results of the confirmatory factor analysis showed that the two factor structure (family support and challenge) of the SCQ fits well for Korean students. The K-SCQ has also good internal consistency. Further analysis was performed to explore the relationships between four family types based on K-SCQ and children`s well-being and flow experience. It showed that the children in a high support/high challenge family had the highest emotional well-being, psychological well-being, and flow experience. These results suggest that the complex family characterized by high support and challenge has strong and positive impact on the children`s quality of life.

Kim, Ji-Hye ; Ju, Ji-Hyeung ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 49, issue 6, 2011, Pages 95~107
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2011.49.6.095
This study was to investigate use of functional foods and attitude on related education among adolescents. Subjects of this study were a total of 826 students in middle and high schools of Cheongju and Cheongwon area. Among the subjects, 44.8% had an experience in consuming functional foods. Among the subjects that experienced side effects possibly by the consumption of functional foods, 13.0% ignored the symptom and continued to consume the foods. Approximately one third of the subject(30.7%) obtained information on functional foods from their parents; however, few subjects(2.2%) obtained the information from the nutrition teachers or dietitians of their schools. Only 9.4% of the subjects underwent education related with functional foods, and 35.1% of the subjects demanded education on functional foods. The present study suggests that an effective education is needed for both students and their parents in order to prevent adolescents from the misuse of functional foods.
Relationship between Parent Communication Style and Stress Coping Styles in Adolescence: The Mediating Effects of Ego-Resiliency
Lee, Hee-Sun ; SunWoo, Hyun-Jung ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 49, issue 6, 2011, Pages 109~122
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2011.49.6.109
The major purpose of this research was to explore the mediating effects of ego-resiliency between parent communication style and stress coping styles in adolescence. The subjects who participated in this study included 247 high school students from Gyeong-gi province. They completed questionnaires on parent-adolescent communication, ego-resilience, and stress coping styles using the cognitive appraisal model by Lazarus & Folkman(1984). Data were analyzed by t-test, Pearson`s correlation coefficients, and multiple regression. It was found that parent-adolescence communication as well as ego-resilience had significant effects on stress coping styles. In particular, female teenagers showed evidence that ego-resilience had complete mediation over relationships between a parent`s communication styles and their stress coping styles.
