The Influences of Parental Acceptance-Rejection, Father Involvement, and Parental Power-Prestige in Childhood on Adult Psychological Maladjustment
Lee, Ju-Lie ;
Journal of Korean Home Management Association, volume 29, issue 6, 2011, Pages 1~8
DOI : 10.7466/JKHMA.2011.29.6.001
This study examined the influences of parental acceptance-rejection, father involvement, and parental power-prestige in childhood on adult psychological maladjustment. Participants were 168 women. Stepwise regression results showed that father and mother's rejection in childhood were association with adult psychological maladjustment. However, both father involvement and parental power-prestige in childhood had no effects on adult psychological maladjustment.

Journal of Korean Home Management Association, volume 29, issue 6, 2011, Pages 9~25
DOI : 10.7466/JKHMA.2011.29.6.009
This study was performed to explore the factors that affect debt-use intention of young defaulters. In addition, this study compares three models that predict the intention to use debt by young defaulters: the theory of reasoned action and two variations of it. Specifically, this study proposes an extended theory of reasoned action by introducing Ao in place of the cognitive structure in the theory of reasoned action. In addition, this study proposes Ao as an independent variable that acts on BI rather than a dependent variable. Self-administered questionnaires were completed by 196 young defaulters attending a credit management education session held by the Credit Counseling & Recovery Service in Kwang-ju, Korea. Based on the study, the conclusions are as follows: the extended theory of reasoned action as proposed in this article most suitably explained the intention to use debt by young defaulters. It was also found that young defaulters were affected by attitudes toward debt, attitudes toward using debt, and subjective norms. It is therefore suggested that an attitudinal message would change the behavior effectively for young defaulters. The findings appeared to support the usefulness of the extended theory of reasoned action and the role of Ao as an independent variable as proposed in this article to explain the intention to use debt by young defaulters. These findings have an important theoretical meaning in that they modify two existing attitude theories in the context of consumer behavior.

Cho, Han-Suk ; Park, Bok-Mae ; Moon, Hyuk-Jun ;
Journal of Korean Home Management Association, volume 29, issue 6, 2011, Pages 27~39
DOI : 10.7466/JKHMA.2011.29.6.027
The purpose of this study was to explore mediating effects of internal-external control between directors' servant leadership and teachers' emotional labor. The subjects of the study were 425 childcare teachers in Seoul, Gyeonggi province and Incheon in Korea. The statistics program used to analyze the data was SPSS(version +18.0). The statistics methods applied were the Pearson correlation coefficient, simple linear regression, and multiple linear regression. The major results of this study were summarized as follows: First, emotional labor and internal control caused by the servant leadership style were found to be positively correlated. Second, servant leadership affected the ability of the teachers to act naturally. These effects were mediated in part by the amount of internal-external control that was shown. Third, servant leadership affected the internal behaviors of the teachers. These effects were mediated in part by amount of the internal-external control that was shown.

Kim, Min-Kyeong ;
Journal of Korean Home Management Association, volume 29, issue 6, 2011, Pages 41~54
DOI : 10.7466/JKHMA.2011.29.6.041
The purposes of this study were to find correlation between family abuse experience, family stress, social support, family resiliency and happiness in university students, and to explore the mediating role of social support and family resiliency between family abuse experience, family stress and happiness. The subjects were 295 university students. The data were analyzed by means of frequency analysis, Pearson's correlation and structural equation modeling with SPSS and AMOS. Instruments were Lee's(2010) Happiness Scale for university students, Strauss'(1988) CTSP(Parent-Child Conflict Tactics Scale), McCubbin's(1981) FILE(Family Inventory of Life Events and Changes), Yu's(2004) Family resiliency of Family Health Scale and Park's(1985) Social Support Scale. The major findings were as follows; Family abuse experience was positively correlated with family stress and negatively correlated with social support, family resiliency and happiness. Family stress was negatively correlated with family resiliency. Social support and family resiliency were positively correlated with happiness. Family abuse experience positively influenced family stress and negatively influenced social support and family resiliency. Social support positively influenced family resiliency and happiness. Family stress negatively influenced family resiliency. Family resiliency positively influenced happiness. Thus education program and counseling should be provided to increase happiness and family resiliency, and social support should be provide to increase the quality of life for university students.

Park, Seong-Yeon ; Lee, Eun-Gyoung ; Bae, Ju-Hee ;
Journal of Korean Home Management Association, volume 29, issue 6, 2011, Pages 55~69
DOI : 10.7466/JKHMA.2011.29.6.055
The purpose of this study was to explore the effects of difficult temperament and mothers' reactions to child negative emotion on child emotion regulation strategies. Mothers of 253 preschoolers(Mage=4.04yrs.) responded to questionnaires on child temperament, mothers' reactions to child negative emotion, and child emotion regulation strategy. The results of regression analysis revealed that; 1) child difficult temperament positively predicted child's aggressive or outburst/appealing strategies whereas negatively predicted avoidance/none strategy; 2) child difficult temperament was not the variable predicting positive coping strategy, but mothers' emotion-focused or problem-focused reactions predicted child positive coping strategy whereas punitive or distress reactions predicted either aggressive or avoidance/none strategy; 3) child temperament moderated the link between mothers' reactions to child's negative emotion expression and child emotion regulation strategies. In particular, children with higher difficult temperament showed higher aggressive strategy under mothers' higher distress or punitive reaction and lower emotion focused or problem focused reaction. On the other hand, children with lower difficult temperament only showed avoidance/ none strategy when mothers showed higher minimization or punitive reaction. The results of current study underscore both child temperament, mothers' reactions and their interactions in predicting child emotion regulation strategies.

Hong, Sung-Rye ;
Journal of Korean Home Management Association, volume 29, issue 6, 2011, Pages 71~87
DOI : 10.7466/JKHMA.2011.29.6.071
The purpose of this study was to investigate perceptions of the self-efficacy of youth (self-confidence, self-regulatory efficacy, and task difficulty preference) and the subjective quality of life. The participants in this research were 697 university students 314 males and 383 females. All respondents submitted their answers on a self-report questionnaire. The data were analyzed with descriptive statistics, t-tests, Pearson's correlations, and multiple regression analyses. The major results of this study were as follows: (a) Young males exhibited higher levels of self-efficacy perception compared to young females. Regarding the subjective quality of life, gender was not a significant factor. (b) The subjective quality of life was highly correlated with the self-efficacy of youth (self-confidence, self-regulatory efficacy, and task difficulty preference). (c) Self-satisfaction, self-confidence regarding one's career, satisfaction with one's friends, satisfaction with one's parental relationship, quantity of reading, and the amount of study-time all had significant influences on the self-efficacy of youth, whereas the family's socioeconomic status and campus life satisfaction were not significant factors. (d) Self-efficacy had the strongest influence on the youth subjective quality of life. Self-satisfaction, campus life satisfaction, and satisfaction with friends all had significant influences on the youth subjective quality of life, whereas the quantity of reading, the amount of study-time, self-confidence with one's career, the family's socioeconomic status, and satisfaction with one's parental relationship were not significant factors. However, self-confidence with one's career, satisfaction with one's parental relationship, the family's socioeconomic status, and quantity of reading all had different levels of influence on the subjective quality of life for young males and females.

Kim, Young-Joo ;
Journal of Korean Home Management Association, volume 29, issue 6, 2011, Pages 89~103
DOI : 10.7466/JKHMA.2011.29.6.089
Citizen participation or resident participation is perceived as an effective way to correspond to the diverse urban problems, especially in the area of residential environment improvement projects and community activities. As the leading city of the Honam region and a core middle city leading the development of the southwestern region, Gwangju city is planning and under-developing new Housing Complexes and Urban Renewal Projects. The purpose of this study is to identify the perception of Gwangju citizens on resident participation in community activities to suggest diverse strategies for improving quality of citizen's life and making better living environment. For the research purpose, 1,380 questionnaires were distributed to the Gwangju citizens who live in 5 autonomous districts -Dong-gu, Seo-gu, Nam-gu, Buk-gu, and Gwangsan-gu- and 601 were used in data analysis. Although citizens in Dong-gu showed the lowest settlement consciousness, they required the highest level of need for resident self-help activities. Contrastingly, Seo-gu showed the highest level of settlement consciousness and the lowest need for resident self-help activities. Based on the results, high quality community facility should be provided to promote residential satisfaction and consciousness of residential participation and self-help activity must be improved. And also, diverse strategies for resident participation including development of resident education programs and search for regional resources should be covered in further research.
The Development of Elderly-Friendly Ubiquitous Housing Environment : Focused on the Needs for Ubiquitous Home Services by Elderly Households without Children
Kwon, Oh-Jung ;
Journal of Korean Home Management Association, volume 29, issue 6, 2011, Pages 105~121
DOI : 10.7466/JKHMA.2011.29.6.105
The purpose of this study was to propose ubiquitous housing environment based on older residents' needs for ubiquitous(UT) home services. For this purpose, at the previous study which was the first stage of this study, UT home services by each elderly household based on spouse, income level, and health status were identified and this study finally proposed UT home services by each elderly household type according to residents' level of needs for UT home services. One to one interview with a structured survey questionnaire and illustration was implemented and 204 older residents who were composed of one of six elderly household types were responded. Among 6 types of elderly households, type 2 and 6 were the groups which had higher needs for various kinds of UT home services. Economic status and their health status were the key factors to determine their needs for UT home services. Type 4 and 7 were the groups to express their lower needs for UT home services due to their lower income level and good health condition. Ultimately, two floor plans for type 4 and 5 elderly households were developed to show applicable UT home services in each room of the house.
A Study on Family-Friendly Culture of Workplaces and Policies
Jeong, Young-Keum ;
Journal of Korean Home Management Association, volume 29, issue 6, 2011, Pages 123~136
DOI : 10.7466/JKHMA.2011.29.6.123
Korean workplaces can and should reflect the realities of the 21st century workforce. Leading companies try to plan and implement family-friendly policies for their employees, but most of them in fact do not offer family-friendly policies or offer only a few such policies. Therefore, this study seeks to suggest policies that can lead to better family-friendly cultures at workplaces. A family-friendly company culture allows for a better work-life balance, including flexible schedules and generous family-leave policies. This study suggests a family-friendly committee for work-life balance and a role for the government as a leading organization.

Lee, Yun-Jeong ; Koh, Sun-Kang ;
Journal of Korean Home Management Association, volume 29, issue 6, 2011, Pages 137~151
DOI : 10.7466/JKHMA.2011.29.6.137
This study examines the condition of transfers between mothers and adult children, analyzing the influencing factors in such transfers. Specifically the study examines the influence of financial transfers and economic resources on financial transfers and grandchild caregiving between mothers and adult children. The sample of 3719 mothers with adult children was extracted from the first wave of the Korean Longitudinal Survey of Women and Families. The major findings are as follows. Mothers's socio-demographic characteristics are important factors in explaining financial transfers between mothers and adult children. Mothers who have jobs and spouses are more likely to provide economic resource to their adult children than those who don't have. In terms of receiving economic resources from adult children, statistically meaningful factors are mothers' age, labor market participation, marital status, household income, household asset, and children's labor market participation. Especially, labor market participation of mothers and adult children is statistically powerful factor in financial transfers and caregiving.

Chun, Hui-Young ; Ok, Kyung-Hee ;
Journal of Korean Home Management Association, volume 29, issue 6, 2011, Pages 153~167
DOI : 10.7466/JKHMA.2011.29.6.153
This study analyzed changes in postpartum depression in mothers from one month after childbirth to the first year using panel data collected overtime, in an effort to determine the relationship between the amount of change and child-rearing system variables. The subjects were 1097 mothers who belonged to both the lower and upper
percentile groups in the depression change distribution of the 2008 Korean Children Panel Study (PSKC), a large, population-based study conducted by the Korea Institute of Childcare and Education. The data were analyzed by t-tests,
tests, partial correlation coefficient analyses and regression analyses. The results are summarized as follows: First, the mothers' postpartum depression showed a significant increase during the first year as opposed to the first month after birth. Second, after controlling for socio-demographical variables of the mothers, the changes related to depression showed a positive relationship with child-rearing stress, and the child's emotional temperament, but showed a negative relationship with the mother's self-esteem, the child's birth order, and the father's participation in child-rearing activities. Third, variables having a significant effect on changes in postpartum depression were the mother's self-esteem and child-rearing stress, the child's age in months, and social support. Variables pertaining to the mother's characteristics variables had a more powerful effect than other child-rearing system variable categories. The results suggest the necessity to develop a parental education program or a mother-child health service in consideration of the variables that affect mothers, as determined in this study, in an effort to prevent postpartum depression.

Won, Hye-Jun ; Kim, Myoung-Soon ;
Journal of Korean Home Management Association, volume 29, issue 6, 2011, Pages 169~184
DOI : 10.7466/JKHMA.2011.29.6.169
The aim of this study was to investigate whether there are differences in mother's parenting behaviors and children's playfulness and communication abilities according to the type of family and to determine the relationships among these variables. A total of 154 pairs consisting of 77 pairs of children and their mothers from multi-cultural families and 77 pairs of children and mothers from general families along with 76 teachers in charge of the children participated in this study. We found that there was a difference in the children's playfulness and communication ability according to the family type. Moreover, the relationship between the mothers' parenting behaviors and their children's playfulness and communication ability levels differed according to family type. Therefore, to understand children's playfulness and communication ability in general and multicultural families, it is necessary to consider each child's environment.
Meanings of 'Ethical Relationships between Husband and Wife' by Means of Family Life Education in the Joseon Dynasty : Focusing on Yi Duk-Hong's Bubuyubyeoldo
Chung, Chung-Kee ; Ok, Sun-Wha ;
Journal of Korean Home Management Association, volume 29, issue 6, 2011, Pages 185~199
DOI : 10.7466/JKHMA.2011.29.6.185
The aim of this study was to grasp the context of family life education under the Joseon Dynasty. As a first step to attain this goal, we used Yi Duk-Hong's Bubuyubyeoldo as our main material and examined the meaning of 'bubuyubyeol'(夫婦有別) in family life education as it was defined during the Joseon Dynasty. As a result, we found that 'bubuyubyeol' implied the strict avoidance of the opposite sex in the relationship between a couple and others as well as within the marital relationship. We also determined that in the family life education, 'bubuyubyeol' was closely related to 'bujayuchin'(父子有親), a concept that refers to the ethical relationship between parents and children. This concept also, formed the basis of social relationships. These results imply that contemporary family life education will be more effective and efficient 1) when it presupposes a common basic concept pertaining to the contents of object-specific education as well as overall family life education, and 2) when direct education programs are executed in harmony with indirect education.

Park, Ju-Hee ;
Journal of Korean Home Management Association, volume 29, issue 6, 2011, Pages 201~216
DOI : 10.7466/JKHMA.2011.29.6.201
The purpose of this study is to investigate the effects of role satisfaction and role strain of employed wives on their marital satisfaction. Data were collected from 297 employed wives who are also mothers and reside in the city of Seoul and the province of Gyeonggi-do. Our findings are also as follows: First, employed wives showed a relatively high level of marital satisfaction. Second, when employed wives experienced less role strain, they experienced more role satisfaction. At the same time, when employed wives experienced greater role satisfaction, they also experienced greater marital satisfaction. It was also found that when employed wives experienced greater role strain they experienced less marital satisfaction. Third, our analysis partially confirmed that there were only three variables that significantly affected marital satisfaction; the age of the employed wife, the level of role satisfaction and the level of role strain.
