The Moderating Effect of Teacher-Child Relationship on the Relation between Problem Behavior and Peer Victimization
Kwon, Yeon Hee ;
Korean Journal of Human Ecology, volume 22, issue 3, 2013, Pages 391~404
DOI : 10.5934/kjhe.2013.22.3.391
This study examined the moderating role of teacher-child relationship on the relation between children's problem behavior and peer victimization. Participants were 198 children(97 boys, 101 girls; recruited from classes with 5-6 year olds) and their kindergarten teachers. The teachers completed the rating scales to measure the children's peer victimization, problem behavior and teacher-child relationship. The collected data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, t-tests, correlations, and hierarchical multiple regressions. Boys and girls were analyzed separately. Results showed that children's problem behavior had positive relation to their peer victimization. Teacher-child relationship significantly related to children's peer victimization. Hierarchical regression analysis indicated that the interaction of boys' withdrawal behavior and teacher-child closeness predicted boy's peer victimization. Boys' withdrawal behavior, whose teachers demonstrated the lowest level of teacher-child closeness, associated significantly with their peer victimization. Boys' withdrawal and aggressive behavior had significant relation to their peer victimization, especially for the highest level of teacher-child conflictual relationship. Findings suggested the importance of teacher-child relationship in the context of intervention planning for peer victimization.

The purpose of this study was to find pathways among factors that distinguish the mothers' intention to have a second child. As for factors affecting the childbirth intention of mothers, this study aimed to explore pathways from fathers' participation in childrearing to intention of second childbirth as mediating variables, maternal parenting stress and marital satisfaction. This study used the third wave data of the Panel Study of Korean Children (PSKC) that is a national-representative birth-cohort study. Among the 1,802 participants of the PSKC, 717 mothers who have a husband/partner and only one child have responded a decided intention of second childbirth. SPSS 19.0 and Amos 19.0 were used to implement exploratory analyses of predictors and test path models. Results showed that the hypothetical model assuming a path from paternal involvement in childrearing to mothers' intention of second childbirth, mediated by maternal parenting stress and marital satisfaction fitted the data of working mothers and non-working mothers well. The results suggest policies focusing on internal characteristics of mothers and dynamics in the family.

International marriage is composed over 10% among total marriage in Korea. This study tried to know what kinds of social networks, especially transnational networks, the immigrant wives use for the process of being married and for the adjusting to marriage and Korean culture, and how their Korean families also are affected by the transnational networks. For the purposes of this study FGI and the interviews were applied for the immigrant wives, the multicultural husbands and the specialist groups in metropolitan city DaeGu. 18 migrant interviewees from Vietnam, China, Philippine, etc. were collected by the snow-ball sampling. 5 husbands were collected from the self-help meeting in multicultural families support center. The transnational networks of the immigrant wives in DaeGu were deterritorialized and reterritorialized actively. Migrant wives managed the close relationship with their family members of motherland, and had the networks sticky with relatives, friends, and other fore-immigrant wives from the same countries. Their migrations are characterized as 'chain migration'. Even though they acquired the Korean nationality, they have the transnational identities. They and their Korean families are interrelated and internetworked in exchanging economic resources as goods and money, human beings, love, child caring, foods and culture over local boundaries.
The Effects of Social Relationships and Family Relationships on the Life Satisfaction of Married Female Baby Boomers in Busan and Gyeongnam Province
Kim, Eunkyung ;
Korean Journal of Human Ecology, volume 22, issue 3, 2013, Pages 437~453
DOI : 10.5934/kjhe.2013.22.3.437
The purpose of this study was to identify how social relationships and family relationships were associated with the life satisfaction of married female baby boomers who live in Busan and Gyeongnam province. This study included community sample of 499 female baby boomers who were married and had at least one child. Participants reported lower levels of life satisfaction. A hierarchical regression analysis was conducted to investigate the effects of the following variables on the female baby boomers' life satisfaction: subjective health, educational level, monthly household income, employment status, perceived size of social network, participation in leisure organizations, participation in voluntary associations, satisfaction with children, and marital satisfaction. Except employment status and participation in leisure organizations, other 7 variables were significantly and positively associated with the life satisfaction of married female baby boomers. In particular, marital satisfaction had the strongest effect on life satisfaction, followed by satisfaction with children. The results suggested family played a primary role in the life of married female baby boomers. Family life education program~ female baby boomers, their children and husbands need to be developed and offered in order to improve the life satisfaction of female baby boomers.
Consumer Confusion on the Information Channel and Information Contents of Multichannel Environment
Nam, Eugene ; Kim, Kyungja ;
Korean Journal of Human Ecology, volume 22, issue 3, 2013, Pages 455~471
DOI : 10.5934/kjhe.2013.22.3.455
The purpose of this study was to investigate on what kinds of consumer confusion exist and how much confusion consumers experience during their information search process. In-depth interviews and a questionnaire survey with college students were conducted to figure out the type and the level of consumer confusion. Results showed that college students were somewhat confused when they chose information channel and when they understood and used the chosen information. It was found that confusion was due to partly because of too many information and partly because of the lack of consumer searching skill.
Analysis of the Consumer Consulting Types about Cosmetics
Seo, Jeonghee ; Jeong, Yoonsun ;
Korean Journal of Human Ecology, volume 22, issue 3, 2013, Pages 473~483
DOI : 10.5934/kjhe.2013.22.3.473
This study analyzed the consumer consulting type about cosmetics, and examined the characteristics of the consumer consulting type. The data used for the analysis are 7,126 consumer consulting cases of cosmetics, which had been applied for the consumer counseling centers, from July 2010 to June 2011. Through the consumer consulting paper, the consumer consulting types were divided into as follows : purchase, delivery, quality, product, product display and advertising, services, after purchase, simple consulting, seller's unfair bill, and other types of consulting. According to the results of the analysis, consumers were anxious about cosmetics quality and safety, and they also wanted objective information on cosmetics. Consumer consulting type were significantly different by ages. 63.3% of teenagers were consulting about purchase problem. 31.5% of the 20's were consulting about quality, and 26.0% were consulting about purchase. 30's, 40's, more than 50's groups mostly were consulting about quality. Based on that, this study suggests about policy and consumer education for how to use and purchase the cosmetics correctly.

The temperature changes of dumpling(mandu) during cooking process were examined and the effects of time-temperature and/or time-size interactions on internal temperature were studied. Mandu was purchased from local markets and classified by its weight(small, medium, and large). Boiling, steaming, pan frying, and deep fat frying were adopted. Internal temperature was measured with a food thermometer in every one minute. The internal temperature of mandu increased over time in every cooking process(p<0.05). After three minutes the internal temperature of mandu in boiling, pan frying, and deep fat frying reached over at
, which is high enough temperature to kill the harmful bacteria, but not in steaming. The internal temperature of mandu was significantly affected by cooking time, size, and both in boiling, steaming, and deep fat frying(p<0.05). There were significant differences between the internal and surface temperatures of mandu in the cooking processes except pan frying in three minutes(p<0.05). The results of this study indicate three minutes' cooking of the mandu by boiling, pan frying, and deep fat frying is safe enough to eat. However, longer steaming time is needed in order to reach safe temperature. This study also indicates the cooking time and size of mandu appear to be major factors in determining the internal temperature achieved at
. More research is needed to check time to reach a safe temperature in the cooking process of mandu by steaming.
A Study of Sitting Areas Preferred to Use by Assisted Living Residents in the U.S.
Lee, Min-Ah ;
Korean Journal of Human Ecology, volume 22, issue 3, 2013, Pages 493~509
DOI : 10.5934/kjhe.2013.22.3.493
This study investigated the sitting areas preferred to use by assisted living residents in the U.S., compared the perceptions of staff and residents, and analyzed the effects of residents' and spatial characteristics on the preference for use of main sitting areas such as lounge, dining area, activity room and outdoor area. A total of 102 participants(66 residents and 36 staff) from eight facilities in the seven counties of southern Texas were asked about two sitting areas residents like to spend time at. The results of the study were as follows: The most frequently mentioned sitting areas were the activity and outdoor area as per the residents, but the dining area and lounge as per the staff. It might be due to that the view of staff might have been limited to sitting areas usually used by the severely frail residents. Residents using higher level of mobility assistance such as wheelchairs and walkers, or living in the facility having more dispersed sitting areas were less likely to prefer to use the lounge. The residents who were younger or having good centralized outdoor area were more likely to prefer to use the outdoor area. The preference for use of dining area was affected by its proximity from the residents' individual rooms. Diverse survey methods need to be developed for a more in-depth collection and analysis of data from functionally frail older residents and staff caring for them.
