The purpose of the study was to analyze the constraints that are normally experienced before moving in the context of the household characteristics of households that had recently moved to newly-built apartments. The data for the analysis was collected through a self-administered questionnaire from July 1, 2008 to August 10, 2008. The sample consisted of 251 households in Ulsan living in an apartment complex who had moved within a year. The data from the sample was analyzed by descriptive statistics, factor analysis, and analysis of variance with Duncan's multiple range tests. The results are as follows. The constraints were categorized into information gathering, attractive housing characteristics, expectations of residential mobility, housing development and policies, and resources. Overall, the constraints did not have a huge impact on the performance of the residential mobility of the sample households. Resources, however, were the most influential factors among the five constraints followed by attractive housing characteristics, information gathering, etc. The constraints varied based on the demographic characteristics, such as the household size, duration of marriage, age of the household head, and the socio-economic characteristics, such as the education level of the household head, household income, and the number of mobility. As the number of family members increased, the age of the household head went up, or the level of education went down, the constraints on information gathering were affected in terms of performing residential mobility. Households with a middle aged head with a professional occupation were more constrained by the attractive characteristics of the housing. The impact of the resources related constraints was significantly different based on the number of family members, marriage duration, and the household head's age and occupation, and the number of mobility.

A Discussion of the Family-Friendly Village Model and Important Factors
Cha, Sung-Lan ;
Journal of Korean Home Management Association, volume 28, issue 2, 2010, Pages 63~76
A law facilitating a family-friendly social environment was legislated in December 2007. According to the law, projects for facilitating a family-friendly social environment consisted of a family-friendly working environment, a community environment, and the promotion of a family-friendly culture. There has been much progress in developing a family-friendly working environment through projects such as those advocating for flexible work hours, an employee support system, and child care and a family care support system. However, in terms of a family-friendly community environment project, there was no noticeable advancement. Hence, this study was conducted to find ways to vitalize the family-friendly village project in terms of the family-friendly community environment project. The major findings of this study were as follows: A family-friendly village could be structured on the three axes of time, space, and relation. The model of the family-friendly village project consists of the following three steps: motivation, systematization, and participating & practicing. In the motivation step, integration, community, and sustainability were needed as basic ideologies for a family-friendly village. In the systematization step, providing systematic educational systems for residents taking on leadership and activist roles was stressed. In the participating & practicing step, many ways to facilitate residents' social relationships were suggested: starting the project from matters of common interests, making the resolution of families' problems a communal task of the residents, accepting the opinions of various groups associated with the matter, and taking a differentiated project process according to the geographic, socio-economic, and demographic characteristics of the groups. It is strongly suggested that the family-friendly village should be taken as a common functional scheme in everyone of eight livable village models because a key factor in a family-friendly village, family care, serves an essential function in any livable village model.

Third, fathering practice(understanding, educating) were significant predictors of adolescents' active coping behaviors and social support seeking coping behaviors respectively. Fourth, adolescents' active coping behaviors and social support seeking coping behaviors had a partial mediating effect on the relationship between fathering practice and adolescents' emotional intelligence.
The Effects of Family-Friendly Corporate Policies on Employees' Childbirths
Yoo, Gye-Sook ;
Journal of Korean Home Management Association, volume 28, issue 2, 2010, Pages 89~96
This study examines how frequently employers offer family-friendly corporate programs and how frequently employees use the programs. This study also seeks to discover whether the implementation and utilization of family-friendly corporate programs results in an increase in employees' childbirths. Data were collected from 377 married full-time employees working in private sector companies located in Seoul and GyeongGi-Do. Frequency analyses of the employees' responses showed moderate rates of implementation of family-friendly corporate programs and much lower rates of employees' utilization. The hierarchical regression analysis revealed that the implementation of family-friendly corporate programs significantly predicted employees' childbirths. However, this was ineffective, having no significant influence on employees' childbirths, when their utilization of the programs was entered into the model. Higher rates of utilization of family-friendly corporate programs predicted more childbirths after employment. This study suggests that the implementation of family-friendly corporate programs per se is not a complete solution to get employees to have more babies. Rather, what matters is the usability of those programs. Finally, the implications of the study results are discussed.

Choi, Na-Ya ; Suh, Joo-Hyun ; Kim, Jin-Kyung ;
Journal of Korean Home Management Association, volume 28, issue 2, 2010, Pages 97~110
The purpose of this study was to analyze the research trends in children's daily stress from 1990 to 2009. A total of 97 articles were selected from 30 Korean journals in the field of child development, early childhood education, psychology and so on. We analyzed the trends of research focusing specifically on the participants, themes, and methodology by 5 years, and discussed the features of major stress scales. The results were as follows. Firstly, research on children's stress started in the first half of the 1990s and drastically increased in the latter half of that decade. In the following decade, more various journals dealt with articles on children's stress, and more studies were conducted on the intervention of stress. Secondly, many studies investigated the developmental change in stress, rather than focusing on the same age group. The younger preschoolers participated in studies as years go by, indicating that the age of suffering from stress was downward. Thirdly, most research used stress as a dependent variable to examine the factors affecting stress. Fourthly, questionnaires, observation and interview were used as methods to measure children's stress, while qualitative research was rarely conducted. Lastly, scales to measure children's stress should be revised and developed, especially for succeeding research in the area of early childhood.

Chae, Jin-Young ;
Journal of Korean Home Management Association, volume 28, issue 2, 2010, Pages 111~121
This study examined the variables that influence career maturity in elementary school students and tested a hypothetical structural equation model relating the variables to career maturity. The subjects were 2,771 fourth-grade children(1,494 boys and 1,277 girls) who participated in a Korea Youth Panel Survey(KYPS) in 2004. Data were analyzed through frequency, percentages, Pearson's correlations using SPSS 15.0and structural equation modeling with AMOS7.0. The findings are as follows. The proposed model, as revised, demonstrated the effectiveness of an analysis of the structural equation model, and illustrated that the socio-economic status of parents has only an indirect influence on children's career maturity via relationship with parents, children's self-image or academic work. In addition, relationship with parents, children's self-image, and academic work independently affected children's career maturity both directly and indirectly. Based on the causal relationships among these related variables, the findings reveal that the best pathway towards children's career maturity is in the order of socio-economic status, relationship with parents, children's self-image, and children's academic work.
