The Influence of Juvenile Self-Efficacy on the Consumption Behavior and the Learning Effects of the Unit 'Consumption Life'
Park, Eun-Hee ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 50, issue 7, 2012, Pages 1~12
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2012.50.7.001
The purpose of this study was to identify the factor structure of self-efficacy, consumer behavior, and the learning effects of the unit 'Consumption Life' and to study the effects of self-efficacy on the consumer behavior, and the learning effects of the unit 'Consumption Life'. Questionnaires were administered to 370 female middle school students living in the Metropolitan City of Daegu. The data was analyzed by using the frequency, descriptive statistics, factor analysis, reliability analysis, multiple regression, and t-test. The findings are as follow. Self-efficacy was composed of five factors such as the capability in work performance, rational performance, fear, anxiety, and the ability to challenge oneself. Consumer behavior was composed of five factors such as emphasis on product display, emphasis on information, emphasis on fashion, emphasis on appearance, and the products/information exchange. The learning effects of the unit 'Consumption Life' was composed of two factors in the economical consumption, and rational consumption. The effects of consumer behavior and the learning effects of the unit 'Consumption Life' on each of the self-efficacy factors like the capability in work performance, rational performance, fear, anxiety, the ability to challenge oneself were explained by factors such as emphasis on product display, emphasis on information, emphasis on fashion, emphasis on appearance and products/information exchange, and economical consumption and rational consumption.

Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 50, issue 7, 2012, Pages 13~20
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2012.50.7.013
This study aimed to find the association between geographic proximity and program participation at a Healthy Family Support Center (HFSC). Drawing demographic and geographic information from the participant list at a local HFSC in Seoul for the period 2009 to 2011, this study calculated the geographic distance from the individual residence to the center for 2,343 participants. We found that single time participants had a longer distance from their residence to the center than multiple time participants. When we compared the proximity by program areas, we found that the geographic distance to the center was shorter among education program participants than among non participants. However, there was no difference in the other areas of programs. In terms of the target group, the distance was shorter among adult program participants. Finally, the average distance among participants in multiple session programs was shorter. The results of this study indicated that the relationship between geographic proximity and program participation depended on program areas, target groups, and the number of sessions.

Based on the premise that perspectives or the frame of cognition may affect the ways that family practitioners support or intervene in families, this study aimed to investigate the perspectives of Certified Healthy Family Specialists (CHFS) on family practice in the Healthy Family Support Centers. A total of 9 CHFSs gave information about their beliefs and perspectives on family practice in in-depth interview. Additionally, 5 CHFS participated in focus group interview and gave information about their values, beliefs, and perspectives on family practice. Through qualitative analyses, four perspectives were found to be explicitly or implicitly carried by CHFSs: System theory perspective, Strengths perspective, Family cognition perspective, and Public intervention perspective. These four perspectives are currently leading themes of family research and are prospected to prevail in family support and intervention practices in the Healthy Family Support Centers in South Korea. Based on the results of qualitative analyses, directions and range of influence in perspectives on family practice perceived by CFHSs were discussed. In this study, the subject of Healthy Family Project, the CHFSs' aims, and emphasis on family practice were dealt with, and developmental direction establishment related to the Healthy Family Support Centers and CFHSs in the dimension of practice and policy in the future were implied.

Choi, Mi Wha ; Son, Mi Young ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 50, issue 7, 2012, Pages 37~48
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2012.50.7.037
The purpose of this study was conducted to improve middle and high school students' satisfaction on their uniforms and to provide basic information for their better size systems. This study analyzed the purchasing and modification behavior, fitting evaluation, and size decision aspect of students. This study was surveyed middle and high schools students in Daegu City. The collected data were analyzed by frequency analysis, percentage, t-test, chisquare test. The results of this study are as follows; 61.3% of the students interviewed have experienced to modify their uniforms. Since the unfittable size and non-fashionable design caused the students to modify their uniforms, it seems necessary to set up the various uniform sizes, as well as figuring out its aesthetic characteristic. Between middle school and high school students, and students with a uniform modification and students without a uniform modification, there were partially differences in fitting evaluation, and size decision.

Kwon, Bo Ra ; Chang, Young Eun ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 50, issue 7, 2012, Pages 49~58
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2012.50.7.049
The main aim of the current study is to examine the effects of mothers' parental beliefs and mother-child attachment on school-aged children's time management and life management skills through the mediation effects of children's self-regulation. Study participants included a total of 317 fifth- and sixth-grade children at elementary schools located in Seoul and Gyeong-gi area, and their 317 mothers. Children and mothers completed questionnaires and Structural Equation Modeling was adapted as the main analysis technique. The findings were the following: First, mothers' parental beliefs that emphasize the child's independence were significantly related to greater self-regulation ability in children, indicated by cognitive, motivational, and behavior regulation. Second, better quality of mother-child attachment perceived by children was also found to predict greater self-regulation in children. Third, children's self-regulation was strongly related to time and life management skills. When the child is better at self control, the child showed greater management skills, both in time and everyday life. Finally, as hypnotized, the test yielded a significant mediation effect of self-regulation in the association from mothers' parental beliefs and mother-child attachment to children's time and life management skills. The findings suggested the important role of parental beliefs about child rearing and attachment between mother and child in developing self-regulation and management skills of school-aged children.

Keum, Jiheon ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 50, issue 7, 2012, Pages 59~66
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2012.50.7.059
The purpose of this study was to identify a causal relationship in the career preparation behavior, parental social support, career decision making self-efficacy and the career maturity of the pre-service elementary school teachers. A total of 374 questionnaires were used for data analysis, excluding the 23 copies deemed insincere in response. To ensure the reliability and validity of the questions, technical statistics of the frequency, ratio, average, standard deviation, skewness, and kurtosis via PASW 18.0, item-total correlation, the totality, and the reliability analysis. The structural analysis via AMOS 7.0 in the bootstrapping method was undertaken to perform the path analysis among the variables and to assess the suitability of the model. The findings of the study led to the following conclusions: First, the causal model for the career preparation behavior, parental social support, career decision making self-efficacy, and the career maturity of the pre-service elementary school teachers is suitable to empirical analysis on research variables. Second, the career decision making self-efficacy of pre-service elementary teachers has direct effect on career preparation behavior positively. Third, parental social support of the pre-service elementary teachers has indirect effects on the career preparation behavior positively.
The Expressive Characteristics of Morphing in Fashion Design
Choi, Jung Hwa ; Choi, Yoo Jin ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 50, issue 7, 2012, Pages 67~79
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2012.50.7.067
This study analyzed the characteristics of morphing in fashion design through the documentaries on morphing and fashion. The characteristics of morphing in fine art, media, and design area were categorized as reversible metamorphosis, sequential dissolve and blurring of interpolation boundaries. The results were as follow in fashion design. Reversible metamorphosis showed an automatic silhouette transformation by remote control, the metamorphosis of folding method by wearer's own movements and the automatic silhouette transformation by the air pressurizing method. It represented the thoughts of omnipotence as in the feeling of the magical world, the human desire for control in life, the rationalization of magical thinking and imaginative power, the creation of a new dress space and the extension of dress function. Sequential dissolve showed juxtaposition in the same area by the time order, juxtaposition in virtual space through the computer graphics, the series of fashion photography by steel cut of the dress making process and the blending of digital film and fashion design. It represented the approach for the storytelling of fashion show, implication of creative fashion design process and the creation of organic forms and the feeling of fantasy through artificial technology. The blurring of interpolation boundary showed an overlay of different fabrics with transparent boundaries, an overlay of different patterns with transparent boundaries and the blending of fabrics through the visual mixing of color. It represented the obfuscation of the object, the connotation of the space order, the connotation of the extensive and various meanings and the integrative property of objects.
Consumer Values Derived from Products by Consumers: Difference among the Four Types of Products Classified with Product Attributes and Visibility
Park, Yoon Ji ; Kim, Kee Ok ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 50, issue 7, 2012, Pages 81~96
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2012.50.7.081
The purpose of this study is to understand consumer values derived from products by the contemporary consumers, as the meaning of a product is extended from the functional utilities to the mediums of fulfilling consumer values. Consumer values have been researched from the marketers' perspectives and, thus, the scales to measure consumer values tend to be too abstract and not always reflective of the consumers' perspectives. Holbrook's typology of consumer values is utilized and the products are classified into four groups according to the product characteristic of the utilitarian versus hedonic, and the consumption spaces of the indoor and outdoor. The findings are as follows. First, the values of efficiency, excellence, ethics, and spirituality are more likely derived from utilitarian products, while the value of play is more likely derived from the hedonic products. Second, the values of efficiency, excellence, and ethics are more likely derived from the indoor products, and values of playfulness, esthetics, status, and respect are more likely derived from the outdoor products. Third, the most frequently mentioned values are the efficiency, playfulness, and status. Fourth, the list of products answered as being representative for four types of products are short to include obvious products such as TV, mobile phone, computer, car, refrigerator, and MP3 player. Both the utilitarian and hedonic values are derived from TV, computer, and mobile phone, while the utilitarian value from refrigerator and car, and the hedonic value from MP3 player, digital camera, and game consoles. The results imply that consumer values should be carefully understood and reflected in developing new products in order to successfully fulfill consumers' underlying needs and requirements.
Exploratory Research on the Introduction of Family Impact Analysis
Lee, Hyunah ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 50, issue 7, 2012, Pages 97~107
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2012.50.7.097
The aim of this study is to suggest the introduction of family impact analysis. Family impact analysis is needed to evaluate family policies from the family perspective. This study deals with the definition of family impact analysis and the cases of other impact analysis, such as gender impact assessment and employment impact analysis. In addition, this study suggests the introduction of family impact analysis with evaluation methods, evaluation indicators, and evaluation processes. Evaluation methods are divided into self-assessment and specific-assessment. Evaluation indicators need to be developed based on the family strength. This research also suggests the securing of family time as a basic assessment indicator. The evaluation processes consist of object selection, assessment, evaluation report, and policy improvement. Finally, this study suggests that family impact analysis is a strong strategy for promoting family-friendly policies. In order to introduce family impact analysis in a more systematic manner, further studies on the standards of assessment, formation of research institutions, and the legislative system will be necessary.

Son, Seung Hee ; Kim, Myung Soon ;
Journal of the Korean Home Economics Association , volume 50, issue 7, 2012, Pages 109~116
DOI : 10.6115/khea.2012.50.7.109
The purpose of this study is to develop a scale for evaluation of Parent's Literacy Interaction Rating Scale (PLIRS) for preschool children and to examine its validity and reliability. The participants of this study were 342 Korean mothers with children of 3 to 5 year olds. The methods for data analysis included item analysis, factor analysis for construct validity, Pearson correlations between PLIRS and two sub tests of EC-HOME for concurrent validity, and Cronbach's
for reliability. The item discrimination was determined by comparing the highest and lowest groups using Chi-square (
), and Cramer's V. The 25 items of the scale were found to be satisfactory in item discrimination. The concurrent validity was also identified by correlation between PLIRS and two sub tests of EC-HOME. Factor analysis revealed that the structure of the PLIRS consisted of three factors: 'open interaction', 'directive interaction', and 'picture-book reading interaction'. 'Open interaction' is based on 'Whole Language Approach', such as 'I have my child write as he/she likes even if they spell wrongly.' 'Directive interaction' is based on 'Code Emphasis Approach', such as 'I have my child take dictation.' 'Picture-book reading interaction' is how parents read picture-book with her/his children, such as 'When I read a picture book to my child, I ask various questions about a book story.' The Cronbach's
for internal consistency reliability range was .78 to .87 for three subscales. It was concluded that PLIRS was valid and reliable to examine the literacy interaction between parents and children in home.
