Yoo, Gye-Sook ;
Journal of Korean Home Management Association, volume 30, issue 3, 2012, Pages 1~11
DOI : 10.7466/JKHMA.2012.30.3.001
The purpose of this study is to analyze the effects of attitudes toward reasons for which abortion is permitted on needs for abortion prevention policies among 232 unmarried female students at the middle schools, high schools, and universities located in Seoul. The respondents were requested to complete the self-administered questionnaire, and the principal component analysis, t-tests, Pearson's correlations, and hierarchical multiple regression analyses were performed for analyzing data. The major findings of this study were as follows: First, the principal component analysis identified three reasons for which abortion is permitted. These are reasons under the maternal & child health law, socioeconomic reasons, and normatively unqualified reasons. Second, the female students showed permissive attitudes toward reasons for abortion under the maternal & child health law, disapproval attitudes toward socioeconomic reasons for abortion, and neutral attitudes toward abortion by normatively unqualified reasons. Students also showed high levels of needs for abortion prevention policies. Finally, hierarchical regression analyses revealed that female students' attitudes toward reasons for which abortion is permitted significantly predicted levels of needs for abortion prevention policies, after controlling their sciodemographic characteristics. The implications of the study results are discussed.

Chun, Hui-Young ; Ok, Kyung-Hee ;
Journal of Korean Home Management Association, volume 30, issue 3, 2012, Pages 13~27
DOI : 10.7466/JKHMA.2012.30.3.013
This study explored the parental belief types of mothers who had defected from North Korea and found out its relationship to the mother's child-rearing behaviors and socio-demographical variables and the child's age. 89 mothers who had defected from North Korea with the youngest child being under 20 years old, responded to the questionnaire. The data were statistically analyzed by cluster analysis, MANOVA, and
-test. The results showed that the parental beliefs were clustered into 3 types: 'high child- and parent-centered & low cultural transformation'(cluster 1)(37.08%), 'low child- and parent-centered & middle cultural transformation'(cluster 2)(46.03%), and 'high child- and parent-centered & high cultural transformation'(cluster 3)(16.85%). The differences among the clusters were found in the warmth-acceptance and rejection-restriction dimensions of the mother's child-rearing behaviors. The frequencies of each cluster were meaningfully different depending on the mother's age, educational level, length of residence in South Korea, and their child's age. Based on these findings, the implications and suggestions were discussed.

Noh, Shin-Ae ; Chin, Mee-Jung ;
Journal of Korean Home Management Association, volume 30, issue 3, 2012, Pages 135~149
DOI : 10.7466/JKHMA.2012.30.3.135
The aim of this study is to examine how perceived family-friendliness of community influences parents' efficacy and stress. This study asks three research questions: 1) what is the geographical boundary of community perceived by parents with pre-school children, 2) how the components of family-friendly community affect parents' perception on family-friendliness of their communities, 3) how the perceived family-friendliness of their community affects parenting efficacy and stress. Drawing on a sample of 628 parents(318 males, 310 females) who had at least one pre-school child, we analyze the data by frequencies, means and hierarchical regressions. The major findings are as follows. While the responses on the geographical boundary of community varies the most frequent response is 'Gu'. Both knowledge on family service infra and community social capital, which consist of family-friendly community, affect the perception of family-friendliness of community. The perceived family-friendliness of community is positively associated with parenting efficacy and negatively associated with parenting stress. The effect of the perceived family-friendliness of community on parenting efficacy disappears when social capital is included in the model. There is no such pattern in the association between the perceived family-friendliness of community and parenting stress.

Journal of Korean Home Management Association, volume 30, issue 3, 2012, Pages 151~163
DOI : 10.7466/JKHMA.2012.30.3.151
This study examined the relations between maternal personality, preschoolers' temperament, and overprotective and controlling parenting. A total of 285 mothers whose children aged from 4 to 6 years participated in this study. Mothers completed a set of questionnaires on their personalities, their children's temperament, and their overprotective and controlling parenting. Data were analyzed by regression analyses and t-test. First, maternal extraversion was negatively related to overprotective and controlling parenting, and maternal neuroticism was positively related to these parenting variables. Second, preschoolers' adaptability was negatively linked to overprotective and controlling parenting, and preschoolers' activity was positively linked to these parenting variables. Lastly, preschoolers' adaptability moderated the impact of maternal extraversion on controlling parenting. Maternal extraversion was a negative predictor of controlling parenting when preschoolers' adaptability was low. This relation was non-significant when preschoolers' adaptability was high. These results clearly indicate that both maternal personality and preschoolers' temperament play crucial roles in overprotective and controlling parenting.
