Lee, Ju-Lie ;
Journal of Korean Home Management Association, volume 30, issue 4, 2012, Pages 1~11
DOI : 10.7466/JKHMA.2012.30.4.001
This study examined that the effects of fathers-in-law's and mothers-in law's acceptance-rejection on husbands' and wives' psychological well-being using APIM. Participants were 265 couples living Seoul KyungKi-do and JeJu Island, and their mean age was 39.16 (husbands, SD=7.39) and 36.45 (wives, SD=7.36), respectively. The results of APIM showed that, in father-in law model, actor effects of husbands (the influence of fathers in law acceptance-rejection for husbands on husbands' psychological well-being) were more significant than actor effects of wives (the influence of fathers-in-law's acceptance-rejection for wives on wives' psychological well-being), while partner effects of wives (the influence of fathers in law acceptance-rejection for wives on husbands' psychological well-being) more significant than partner effects of husbands (the influence of fathers' in law's acceptance-rejection for husbands on wives' psychological well-being). In mother-in law model, there were no significant differences both between actor effects of wives and actor effects of husbands, and between partner effects of wives and partner effects of husbands.

This study attempts to examine the effect of family friendly work policies on the work-family balance of employed married women with young children. While previous research has investigated the effects of family friendly work policies, the effects has often been confounded with the effects of other covariates such as worker's and workplace's characteristics. In this study, we try to distinguish the effects of the family friendly work policies from those of other covariates. We draw a sample of 131 employed married women with children under age 12 from the
National Korean Family Survey. We compare the level of work-famiy balance of the women by the type of workplace: public sector, large enterprise, medium enterprise, and small enterprise. The results of this study show that some of the differences in the work-family balance of the women working in the different type of workplace can be attributed to socio-demographic background of the women and the work characteristics of workplace. There is, however, an effect of family friendly policies on the work-family balance between those who work in public sector and in medium enterprise after controlling the effects of the covariates.

The purpose of the study shall be to achieve an understanding of learning and emotional support services for adolescents being raised by their grandparents. In-depth interview and qualitative methodology were used to find changes in the service experiences of 10 adolescents being raised by their grandparents by analyzing their experiences at a health family support center. 1 agency in the Chungnam area was selected as a model for its program for adolescents being raised by their grandparents. Ultimately, 78 items as sub-concepts, 44 items as sub-categories, and 4 items as subjects were identified. Specifically, these included school achievement, peer group relationship, family relationship and significant others. In conclusion, they were found to experience slower physical and emotional development and tend to withdraw in social situations. They were also found to have experienced difficulties in communicating with other people and with school achievement. However, it was shown that these adolescents have made positive changes after participating in a program involving a family coach who supports and provides services for them. Also, they were found to have experienced psychologically changes, and improved in their school achievement and personal relationships. Consequently, we will require more effort to provide emotional support, adult role models, counseling intervention, and social support for them.

Kim, Oi-Sook ; Park, Eun-Jung ;
Journal of Korean Home Management Association, volume 30, issue 4, 2012, Pages 119~132
DOI : 10.7466/JKHMA.2012.30.4.119
The purpose of this study was to investigate the differences in time use between Korean and American high school students. The data sources were the '2009 Time Use Survey' conducted by Korea National Statistical Office and the '2009 ATUS (American Time Use Survey)' conducted by Labor Statistics Division in the U.S.. 1,734 Korean diaries (1,311 on weekdays and 423 on Sundays) and 321 American diaries (208 on weekdays and 113 on Sundays) from high school students of 15 to 18 years of age were analyzed. Descriptive statistics and t-test were used for the statistical analysis. The time use patterns of Korean students on weekdays and Sundays were different than those of their American counterparts. On weekdays and Sundays, the sleeping time of Korean students was 2 hours less than the time of their American counterparts. Koreans studied more, nearly double the time of their American counterparts on weekdays and five times more on Sundays. The study-oriented time allocation of Korean students resulted in less leisure time than the American students. Korean students spent their leisure time of more than 30 minutes participating in social activities, media, and hobbies, and their time allocation to volunteer work and religious activities were nil. On Sundays, the time for studying by Korean students was more than five times longer than that spending by their American counterparts. Koreans used their leisure time of 6 hours and 47 minutes mainly for media, hobbies and social activities. The participation rate of volunteering by Korean students was only 0.5%, though it was 31.0% for the Americans. For a study-life balance for Korean students, it was recommended that trends toward time management and social policy should increase the time allocation to sleeping, housework, work, sports, and volunteering and decrease the time use in studying and hobbies.

Community building in Japan, called Machizukuri, has been in existence since the 1960s, and many successful cases are referred to by researchers and public service officials as benchmarks for creating livable cities and towns in Korea. The purpose of this study is to identify the building factors for a sustainable community and to suggest implications through the cases of machizukuri in Japan. Based on the literature review related to the research topic, on-site visit case study was used as the major research methodology. Four cases -Setagaya, Kawagoe, Motomachi, and Manazuru- were selected as the research subjects and interviews with the representatives of the community(resident) council and public officials were conducted during October 19-22, 2011. The project overview, purpose, and planning characteristics of each case were described for data analysis. The major findings are as follows. Although most of the machizukuri in Japan were administration-dependent at the beginning stage, the case projects in this study showed resident-independence (self-support) from the perspective of sustainability. The results showed that successful community building is an everlasting project that requires cooperation among personnels including residents, civic officials, and related council members.
A Practice Model for Strengthening Resilience among Remarried Families
Kim, Yoo-Jung ;
Journal of Korean Home Management Association, volume 30, issue 4, 2012, Pages 147~161

Remarriage has been prevalent in Korea since the mid-1990s. Remarried families have reported that they face many challenges and difficulties. Life for those who remarry can worsen when the children from a previous marriage live together with new family members. It is interesting that some remarried families adjust well while others do not. This study focuses on developing a practice model for strengthening the resilience of remarried families with children based on a literature review. To understand and support remarried families, the resilience perspective was chosen, focusing on a strengths perspective with developmental, ecological, and preventative perspectives. In terms of resilience, the proposed practice model was developed on the basis of three concepts: belief systems, organizational patterns, and communication. The model can be used to help remarried families accomplish adequate integration by growing as a new family and can prevent another divorce. Moreover, it can assist practitioners and policy-makers develop programs and policies with a strengths perspective rather than a deficit or problem-oriented perspective. Based on the model, various programs need to be developed to strengthen the resilience of remarried families. The development of supportive programs is suggested. These can include remarriage preparation programs, remarriage life education programs, interactive web-based programs, and family camps. For a long time, remarried families have been labeled as abnormal and atypical owing to the normal family myth. This negative perception of remarried families must be altered so that they are accepted with a positive outlook in a society. For further studies, the development of diverse supportive adaptation programs for various types of remarried families and active research on them are recommended. The practice model can assist with the adaptation and growth of remarried families by strengthening their resilience.
