Lee, Sa-Rah ; Lee, Joo-Yeon ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 50, issue 4, 2012, Pages 1~10
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2012.50.4.001
The purpose of this study was to examine the impact of attachment across an individual`s lifespan. The present study investigated how father attachment in childhood influences adult student`s school adjustment and explored the mediating effect of self-esteem between those two variables. Five hundred and twenty-nine adult students who were enrolled in S Cyber University were participants in this study. Subjects` ages ranged from 20-59. They were issued with a questionnaire addressing their present self-esteem level, attachment toward their father in childhood, and school adjustment. The results from SEM analysis indicated that adult students` self-esteem completely mediated between their attachment to their father in childhood and their school adjustment in adulthood. This result shows that a secure attachment to a father in childhood is related to child`s own internal working model, and that positive self-esteem is related to social interactions including school adjustment.

DOI : 10.6115/khea.2012.50.4.011
This study aimed to investigate the impacts of children`s culinary education motive and contents consideration on teachers perception of education effectiveness. The data was gathered from 226 of preschool teachers providing culinary education programs using the five-Likert scales. The preschools were chosen from three randomly selected districts in Seoul, South Korea. Descriptive analysis, factor analysis, and regression analysis were utilized for this study. The result indicate that culinary educators designed the contents of the program considering their convenience when their motive is passive, whereas others focussed on the educational purpose such as children`s eating habit formulation, team work, and development of taste sense when their motive is active. The result also confirmed that culinary educators perceived the educational effectiveness (e.g., children`s development of body, team work, and creativeness) in the course of designing culinary education contents when focusing on children`s education.

Lee, Ye-Ji ; Yang, Sung-Eun ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 50, issue 4, 2012, Pages 21~36
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2012.50.4.021
The purpose of this study was to find out the influence of the Parent`s control based on young children`s habit of lying. This study was carried out through experimental observations. For the purpose of this study a total of 798 participants were selected from 5 kindergartens located in Seoul, Gyeong-gi and Incheon. The results of the study showed that rather than parents being excessively strict towards their children and commanding discipline, the child rearing attitude of rational and logical explanation along with discretionary power given to young children of their own rules. This can allow young children to morally decide and behave themselves. Moreover, moral education that is suited for the young children`s development in order to internally learn about the moral behaviors on their own is needed.

Song, Hyun-Ju ; Yoon, Jung-Hai ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 50, issue 4, 2012, Pages 37~50
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2012.50.4.037
This research was conducted for the analysis the middle-old aged empty nest households` debt holdings and their financial status(emergency fund index, liquidity index, debt burden index) considering the level of income and assets. In order to accomplish this study, we made use of the KReIS third beta-version data. The results of the analysis were as follows. First, in all income asset groups there were more non-debts holding houses compared to debt holding houses. Moreover in debts holding houses, compared to other groups high income high assets groups were more. Second, the households that possessed more assets, had more debts. Third, the financial status of the households holding debts were more vulnerable compared to households that had no debts. Moreover, all income asset groups` emergency fund index were low. Households having no debts possessed low real assets and so the liquidity index was higher in holding debts households. In holding debts households, debt burden index was high. And especially these houses suffered from high debt burden when their income and asset were low.

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the relationship between marital quality and parent-fetal attachment.

The higher effective communication and conflict resolution regarding marital quality were, the higher parent-fetal attachment was.

The Impact of Direct-to-Consumer Advertising of Prescription Medications on Healthy Lifestyle
Yang, Hae-Kyung ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 50, issue 4, 2012, Pages 103~113
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2012.50.4.103
In the U.S. where Direct-to-Consumer Advertising (DTCA) of prescription medications is permitted, spending on DTCA has been accelerating. As a result, it has been an issue of intense public policy attention regarding whether DTCA is beneficial to the public by promoting a healthy lifestyle. Most of the literature concerning DTCA focuses on its impact on demand and empirical evidence regarding its impact on health-related behavior is scant. This study uses a database of DTCAs for high blood cholesterol, hypertension, diabetes, and overweight treatment medications that have appeared in nationally circulated U.S. consumer magazines during 2000 to 2004 and the Simmons National Consumer Survey in order to compute the level of individual advertising exposure and examines whether those who are exposed to DTCA are more likely to engage in regular exercise and diet control. The study finds evidence that for those with chronic conditions, greater exposure to DTCA leads to less exercise but more diet control. By therapeutic class level, exposure to DTCA leads to less exercise for those with hypertension and who are overweight, whereas those with high blood cholesterol are more likely to engage in regular exercise. Looking into differential responses by socioeconomic status, those with less education are more likely to engage in exercise after being exposed to DTCA. The results imply that the effects of DTCA vary by therapeutic class. In order to enhance the benefits of DTCA, it is important to closely monitor the messages in DTCA and require it to include messages that promote lifestyle change should it be a part of the treatment.
