The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of teachers` responsiveness on teachers` strategies of problem behavior guidance. Teachers` responsiveness variables consisted of acceptance, sensitivity, consistency, warmth and teachers` strategies of problem behavior guidance variables consisted of positive proactive strategies, positive reactive strategies, negative reactive strategies. Subjects were 151 early childhood teachers in Seoul and Chungcheungnam-do. The collected data were analyzed using simple regression and hierarchical multiple regression. The main results of this study were as follows. Teachers` acceptance, sensitivity, consistency, warmth were positively related to teachers` positive proactive strategies and positive reactive strategies of problem behavior guidance. On the other hand, teachers` warmth was negatively related to teachers` negative reactive strategies. As results of examining relative effects of teachers` responsiveness on positive proactive strategies of problem behavior guidance, the influential variables were warmth and acceptance. The relative effects of teachers`responsiveness on positive reactive strategies of problem behavior guidance, the influential variables were sensitivity and acceptance. The relative effects of teachers` responsiveness on negative reactive strategies of problem behavior guidance, the only influential variable was warmth.

The purpose of this study was to investigate the overall developmental characteristics of Korean children ages 0 to 8, and then explore specifically how children`s social and emotional developmental levels are related to mothers` psychological states. This study was part of newly launched Boryung Baby Panel Study using web-based survey in 2011. The subjects were all mothers of 940 infants(0-2 years), 654 toddlers(3-5 years), and 484 school-age children(6-8 years) The mothers were asked to administer the web-based standardized developmental checklist for their child and fill out the questionnaires of psychological variables(life satisfaction, depression, parenting attitude, parenting efficacy, and parenting stress). The data was analyzed using descriptive analysis, t-test, and logistic regression for SPSS 20.0 windows. Major findings were as follows: 1. Infants(0 to 2) showed higher developmental level in cognition and fine motor skill domain compared to other domains. 2. Most toddlers(3 to 5) showed normal development in the most domain such as gross motor skill, fine motor skill, language, letter, number, self-help behavior. 3. In socio-emotional development domain, the ratio of risk or delay group were highest at both infant and toddler. 4. The 6-8 years old children that belong to risk group by the result of SDQ(emotion and behavior assessment) were also relatively high. 5. The relation of the children`s socio-emotional developmental level and the mother`s psychological variables were reciprocal. Based on these findings, the implications and the limitations of current study were discussed.

Journal of Korean Home Management Association, volume 31, issue 1, 2013, Pages 29~37
DOI : 10.7466/JKHMA.2013.31.1.029
The purposes of the study were to try configuring categorization of floor plans of elderly centers located in apartment complexes and to find out the spatial transfigurations regarding floor plan types. The data for the analysis of the study were collected from 56 elderly centers of apartment complexes in Ulsan by observations and interviews from July 3 through 13, 2012. The results are as follows. Firstly, the floor plans of the elderly centers were categorized into six types, which were 2R+L+K, 2R+LK, 1R+L+K/1R+LK, 1RL+K, 1RLK, and 2R+K/1R+K(no living room). Secondly, there were no salient differences among the plan types for the characteristics of physical environment of the centers. The types of 2R+L+K were relatively big in size and two thirds of the centers had gender-segregated rooms. Lastly, spatial transfigurations was found in sixty-percent of the centers, which included change of spatial arrangement, functional change, and functional addition. Interestingly, the more the spaces were segregated, the more the spatial transfigurations were performed in the way for the integration of functions of the rooms.

Chae, Jin-Young ;
Journal of Korean Home Management Association, volume 31, issue 1, 2013, Pages 39~48
DOI : 10.7466/JKHMA.2013.31.1.039
This study examined the variables that influence middle school students` level of life satisfaction and tested a hypothetical structural equation model relating the variables to middle school students` level of life satisfaction. The subjects were 2,829 (1,411 boys and 1,418 girls) pupils who participated in the Korean Survey on the Familial Consciousness of Youth and Parents (KSYC-Familial Consciousness) in 2010. Data were analyzed through frequency, percentages, Pearson`s correlations using SPSS 18.0 and structural equation modeling with AMOS 7.0. The findings are as follows. The proposed model, as revised, demonstrated the effectiveness of an analysis of the structural equation model and illustrated that all three variables (fathers` parenting behavior, communication with fathers, self-concept) indicated a direct or indirect influence on middle school students` level of life satisfaction. Fathers` parenting behavior had the greatest total effect on middle school students` life satisfaction. Fathers` parenting behavior, communication with fathers and self-concept explained 59% of the total variance of middle school students` life satisfaction. The implications for future studies are also discussed.

Lee, Wan-Jeong ; Heo, Lin-Kang ;
Journal of Korean Home Management Association, volume 31, issue 1, 2013, Pages 49~59
DOI : 10.7466/JKHMA.2013.31.1.049
The purpose of this study was to explore the relationship of caregivers` accreditation experience and their motivational self-concept. Questionnaire were gathered from caregivers who work in Seoul, Incheon, and Kyunggi areas. Data were analysed by t-test, MCA, and multiply regression analysis. The result showed that caregivers who experienced accreditation at child are centers had higher scores in their motivational self-concept than caregivers who inexperienced accreditation procedure yet had. This tendency was clear in caregiver groups who work at unsupported child care centers, and who got certificate from institutions except college. With controlling individual background variables which influence on caregivers` motivational self-concept, independent effect of caregivers` accreditation experience on their motivational self-concept was still significant especially at the caregiver group who work in unsupported child care centers.

DOI : 10.7466/JKHMA.2013.31.1.113
The purpose of the study is to estimate objective retirement wealth adequacy and subjective retirement wealth, and to compare two of them. Also the factors relating to those wealth readiness were investigated. The data used was 422 pre-retiree who were married and under 65 years old and SPSS 20 was used for the analyses. The results showed that objective reirement wealth readiness was 37.6% and subjective retirement wealth adequacy was 40.9%. Almost half of the sample (44.8%) were indicated to have no objective retirement wealth, but only 5.9% was answered to have no retirement wealth. Both subjective and objective retirement wealth adequacies tended to increase with older age, higher income and lower average propensity to consume groups. The difference between objective and subjective retirement wealth adequacies was smaller with getting older. According to multi-variable analyses, two factors were found to affect on both the subjective and objective retirement wealth adequacies, which were income and retirement asset. The respondents were found to be not able to estimate their own retirement wealth adequacy objectively. The correlation between the subjective and objective retirement wealth adequacies was 0.344. Among the respondents, 74.4% answered bigger number on subjective retirement wealth than their objective retirement wealth.

DOI : 10.7466/JKHMA.2013.31.1.129
The primary focus of the study assesses how individual spouses` and their partners` marital adjustment influence their own and their mental health. The study also examines whether this influence was mediated by the relationship with their adult-children. Data were collected from 271 dyads of elderly couples by using a self-report questionnaire. Marital adjustment was measured in terms of intimacy and comparison level of marriage. Mental health was measured in terms of depressive mood, anxiety, and somatization. The Actor-Partner Interdependence Model (APIM) analysis revealed that marital adjustment was positively associated with one`s own mental health and with one`s own relationship with their adult-children, but not with their partner`s. On the other hand, the relationship with adult-children was positively associated with one`s own and with their partner`s mental health. Furthermore, analysis of the mediating model using APIM indicated that marital adjustment through one`s own adult-children relationship had direct and indirect effects on one`s own mental health. It is interesting to note that the wives` mental health were directly influenced by their partners` relationship with adult-children. However, the effect of the husbands` mental health was not significant. These findings highlight dyadic interdependence among spouses` perceptions of marital and adult-children relationship with their mental health. The results suggest implications for educators and clinicians working with elderly couples to improve their psychological and relational health.
