Pu, Sung-Sook ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 49, issue 9, 2011, Pages 1~13
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2011.49.9.001
This study examined whether preschool children`s meta-socialization (conceptions of social situations) and their responses differed according to the children`s gender. The participants were 78 preschool children living in Seoul, Korea. The results showed gender differences in the children`s conceptions of social situations and in their responses to social situations. Firstly, a girl`s conceptual judgments about social situations were more developed and dependent on the teacher`s authority. Secondly, the boys showed direct and physical responses, while girls showed indirect, linguistic, and emotional responses in moral and social-conventional situations. In addition, girls made more frequent responses to `Choice Assertion` in personal situations than boys.

We investigated the effects of maternal parenting behavior and preschoolers` social skills on the children`s withdrawal behavior. The participants were 92 mothers of five year-old preschoolers and their teachers from two day care centers and one kindergarten in Seoul and Gyeong-gi province. The data were analyzed by using descriptive statistics, correlation analysis, t-test and hierarchical regression. The major findings were summarized as follows: (1) there were no differences between the boys` and girls` withdrawal behavior. (2) the mothers` consistent parenting behavior and preschoolers` lack of assertive behavior explained the children`s withdrawal behavior. In conclusion, maternal parenting behavior and preschoolers` social skills influence on the children`s withdrawal behavior.
A Study of the Characteristics of Costumes in the Mid-17th Century: Ryu Ji Kyung`s Costumes
An, Myung-Sook ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 49, issue 9, 2011, Pages 25~33
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2011.49.9.025
The number of Ryu Ji Kyung`s costumes that have been discovered is small but includes various kinds of coat. These coats have become important clues when trying to determine styles of coat that were present in the mid-17he composition of the costumes found were various, including unlined, lined, padded and quilted variations. Unlined clothes were sewed using broad-stitching, hemming, half backstitching, and backstitching. The unique sewing style of the 17th century was shown in Ryu Ji Kyung`s costumes. Seams on the back of one coat were not connected but rather sewed as a whole because of the width of the cloth. There was a more elaborate sewing style on lined clothes than on unlined clothes, alongside the use of selvage on the reverse of the costumes, marking the face not by using other clothes, but by the sewing line. Because of their to kit types, the width of the sleeves, the presence of a Cheolrik string, the ratio of the upper jacket to the bottom skirt, and the width between the armpits and bottom hems in Jungchimak, Ryu Ji Kyung`s clothes can be used as exemplary models of mid-17th century clothing.

Kim, Se-Young ; Choi, Na-Ya ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 49, issue 9, 2011, Pages 35~45
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2011.49.9.035
This study was conducted to investigate the influence of university students` psychological separation from their parents on conflict solving strategies for dating relationships and on relationship satisfaction. The participants were 231 university students. The results were as follows. Firstly, male students were more psychologically separated from their mothers than female students. When living with parents, students were more psychologically separated from their fathers than their mothers. Secondly, the more independent students were from psychological conflict with their mothers, the less negative strategies they used in conflicts during dating. The closer female students were with their mothers, the more positive conflict solving strategies they used. Thirdly, the students who were freer from conflict with their mothers experienced higher satisfaction with emotional communication when dating. In conclusion, psychological separation from parents was confirmed to be a variable influencing both the effective use of the conflict solving strategies and dating relationship satisfaction.

Kim, Young-Hee ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 49, issue 9, 2011, Pages 47~58
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2011.49.9.047
This study investigated the relationships among mothers` playfulness, play beliefs and rearing attitude. The participants were 261 mothers with young children. PSA(Playfulness Scale for Adults), PPBS(Parent Play Beliefs Scale), MBRI(Maternal Behavior Research Instrument) were used to collect the data. The data were analyzed by t-test, Pearson`s productive correlation analysis, and stepwise multiple regression analysis. The results were as follows: First, mothers` rearing attitude varied by mothers` age, employment status, and educational level. Second, there were significant correlations among mothers` playfulness, play beliefs, and rearing attitude. Third, mothers` playfulness and play beliefs were reliable predictors of rearing attitude.

Shin, Na-Ry ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 49, issue 9, 2011, Pages 59~72
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2011.49.9.059
This study examined whether there are underlying latent classes of growth trajectories of maternal depression in the Korean population. Data from the first phase of the Panel Study of Korean Children (PSKC) of the Institute of Child Care and Education (KICCE) were used for this study. The final sample of participants included 1,471 mothers, who completed three interviews: at birth, at one month, and at four months. A two-class model consisting of depression (12.3%) and non-depression (87.7%) was considered the best-fitting solution using Mplus 3.13. The changes in postnatal depression in the Korean population within four weeks after childbirth, which is the period of "postpartum onset", seem to be important. Logistic regression analysis showed that duration of breast-feeding and planned pregnancy effects were significantly associated with trajectory class membership.

The effect of an adolescent`s being in a multicultural family, including the psychological, cultural, and situational characteristics of this experience, in terms of how it impacts acceptance of Korean culture, social competence, and educational adaptation was investigated. 120 multicultural family adolescents who were enrolled in Seouland Gyeonggi-do middle and high schools were surveyed. The results were analyzed by the PASW Statistics v18 program. Firstly, it was found that the psychological, cultural, and situational characteristics of multicultural family adolescents were significantly affected by family`s general economic level and their mother`s occupation and nationality. Secondly, multicultural family adolescents with higher self-perception, good accommodation of crosscultural attitudes in Korean culture and more relationships with Koreans tended to adapt to Korean culture more easily. Thirdly, multicultural family adolescents who adapted to Korean culture more easily could also adapt to school life well, and those who had better interpersonal relations and more advanced problem-solving skills had better relationships with school friends.

Kim, Jeong-Wha ; Lee, Jae-Yeon ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 49, issue 9, 2011, Pages 121~130
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2011.49.9.121
The purpose of this study was to explore potential correlation between the amount of time children spent in child care centers and their daily stress levels. The subjects of this study were 165 children (aged 2~5) who attended a child care center in Seoul. Children were interviewed individually, and tested using 23 picture cards which describe a range of stressful situations. The results of this study were as follows: the children`s age led to significant differences in their stress level. The age at which the children first entered the child care center had no significant impact on their stress level. However, the times spent in child care centers showed a significant correlation with stress. The longer time the child spent in the center, the higher the degree of stress they encountered.
