Lee, Hyun-Jin ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 49, issue 7, 2011, Pages 1~11
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2011.49.7.001
This study identified the use types of a home help service and the level of service quality and reviewed the extent of their effects on consumer satisfaction. As a result of measuring the service quality in terms of support, assurance, reliability, empathy and responsiveness, a high overall reliability was demonstrated in the service. The consumer satisfaction with the home help service was discovered as being high, in general. Meanwhile, with the female research participants, the lower the service fee was perceived to be, the higher the consumer satisfaction. The quality assessment items concerning support and reliability were found to be important variables which were influential on consumer satisfaction. Therefore, it has been shown to be imperative to prepare political alternatives regarding the development of the service standard in order to protect user`s rights, offer relevant information, and ensure reliability in the home help service.

Lim, Mi-Seon ; Park, Jung-Yoon ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 49, issue 7, 2011, Pages 25~37
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2011.49.7.025
The purpose of this study was to examine the influence of daycare teachers` demographic variables and multicultural variables upon their perception of multicultural families. Daycare teachers` multicultural variables consist of their multicultural family-related education, their perception of single-races and multi-races persons, their acceptance of familial diversity, their cultural capability and the efficacy of multicultural teaching. In conclusion, the study findings show that the multicultural variables seem to have an influence upon teachers` perception of multicultural families. Since the teachers` perception of the multicultural family is important for the shaping of relations between teachers and children from multicultural families and between teachers and females of transnational marriage, the importance of teachers` perceptions of multicultural related variables must be recognized. Therefore, it seems to be necessary to help children from multicultural families improve their adaptability to daycare facilities and for females of transnational marriage to form mutual, cooperative relations with teachers.

Kwon, Yoon-A ; Kim, Deuk-Sung ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 49, issue 7, 2011, Pages 67~80
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2011.49.7.067
This study investigated a path model in which men`s and women`s communication behavior escalating marital conflict (CBEMC) may be influenced directly and indirectly, via negative interpretations of their spouse, by their spouse`s problem behavior, the couple`s turning toward bids, and dyadic perspective-taking. Self-report data were collected from 498 married men and women who were living in Busan, Korea. Multiple-group analysis revealed that the path model was not equivalent for men and women. Their couple`s turning toward bids and dyadic perspective-taking for men, and their spouse`s problem behavior and dyadic perspective-taking for women, had direct effects on CBEMC. Further, their spouse`s problem behavior and the couple`s turning toward bids had indirect effects on CBEMC through negative interpretations in both men and women. The indirect effect of dyadic perspective-taking on CBEMC was significant only for men. Finally, considering total effects, dyadic perspective-taking was the strongest predictor of CBEMC for both genders.
