Wee, Hwee ; Lee, Hyun Kyung ;
Korean Journal of Human Ecology, volume 24, issue 3, 2015, Pages 327~339
DOI : 10.5934/kjhe.2015.24.3.327
The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship of family resilience, gratitude, and child-rearing attitude and to identify predicting factors of family resilience among mothers of young children. A correlative research design was be used for this study with self-administered questionnaires. The subjects were 248 mothers of young children from kindergarten located in Jeonnam and Gwangju provinces in Korea. Data were collected between May to June, 2013. Descriptive statistics, Pearson's correlation coefficient, and multiple regressions with PASW Statistics 18 (SPSS 18.0) program were used for data analysis. The major findings are summarized as follows: (1) Family resilience was closely related to gratitude and four types of child-rearing attitudes. Gratitude was closely related to four types of child-rearing attitudes. And rejective attitude had significantly negative relations family resilience and gratitude. (2) The significant factors affecting family resilience were mother's education level, gratitude, affective attitude, rejective attitude, autonomous attitude and controlling attitude which explained 63% of the variance. The results indicate that gratitude and child-rearing attitude were significant factors associated with family resilience among mothers of young children. In order to increase the family resilience among mothers of young children, family programs that deal with both gratitude and child-rearing attitude should be designed.

Lee, Sungeun ;
Korean Journal of Human Ecology, volume 24, issue 3, 2015, Pages 341~358
DOI : 10.5934/kjhe.2015.24.3.358
This study aims to identify predictors of driving cessation among Korean elderly. Data from 2011 Elderly Survey conducted by Ministry of Health and Welfare and Korea Institute for Health and Social Affairs were used for the analysis. Based on Webber, Porter, Menec(2010)'s comprehensive theoretical framework for mobility, the model of this study tests five major determinants of driving cessation including financial, psychosocial, environmental, physical and cognitive factors. Results of logistic regression analysis showed that economic status, marital status, contacts with relatives and friends, residential location, taking medication, muscle strength, age, gender, and job were significant predictors of driving cessation of older drivers. Specifically, lower economic status, unmarried status, less contacts with relatives and friends, living in the city, taking medication, weaker muscle strength, older age, female, non-working status were significant risk factors for driving cessation. Practical implications in light of study findings were discussed.

Park, Hee-Suk ;
Korean Journal of Human Ecology, volume 24, issue 3, 2015, Pages 359~370
DOI : 10.5934/kjhe.2015.24.3.359
The purpose of this study is to examine the impact of marital conflict, parenting stress on married migrant women's parenting attitudes. Participants in this study were 109 married migrant moms of young children. The major results of this study were as follows: First, married migrant women's parenting stress and marital conflicts negatively related to warmth-encouragement, limit setting, but were positively related to rejection-noninteraction in parenting behavior. Second, married migrant women's warmth-encouragement in parenting behavior was affected by personal conflicts and couple relationship conflicts. Third, competence stress, attachment stress, spouse stress, isolation stress, and health stress also affected warmth-encourage parenting behavior. On the other hand, attachment stress, spouse stress and isolation stress had significant effects on limit setting in parenting behaviors. For rejection-noninteraction in parenting behaviors, depression and spouse stress affected significantly.

Park, Hye-Jin ; Kim, Hyochung ; Kim, Meera ;
Korean Journal of Human Ecology, volume 24, issue 3, 2015, Pages 371~386
DOI : 10.5934/kjhe.2015.24.3.371
The purpose of this research was to investigate perception, knowledge, and practice level for school food hygiene and need for hygiene education with 300 students of elementary schools in Daegu. The average of correct answer percentage on knowledge about food hygiene of the respondents was 65.3%. For practice level of personal hygiene in school food, the average score was 3.75 out of 5 points. The ratio of educational experience of hygiene and dietary behaviors at home was 73.2%. Almost half of the respondents answered that 'food ingredients' should be the most hygienic. About 90% of the respondents recognized 'hand washing' had effect on prevention of foodborne illness. In addition, the respondents wanted to get the information about food hygiene from 'cooking practice at school', 'school broadcasting', 'education program on TV', and 'school newsletter' in order. These results suggest that continuous education on food hygiene for elementary school students are required and supervision to let them have proper hygiene habit is needed.

Choi, Go Eun ; Lee, Joon Ho ;
Korean Journal of Human Ecology, volume 24, issue 3, 2015, Pages 387~406
DOI : 10.5934/kjhe.2015.24.3.387
This study was to investigate consumers' recognition, knowledge and purchase attitude on genetically modified(GM) foods in Daejeon area. Data of 283 questionnaires were analyzed by using the SPSS(Ver. 17.0)program. Most of the subjects were women (91.9%), distributed 30's(41.7%) or 40's(31.8%), and graduated from university(41.3%). The kinds of GM foods that many subjects had known were soybean, corn, tomatoes and potatoes. The subjects answered that there were GM foods in supermarket items were 71%. Consumers' recognition on the safety of GM foods was 'somewhat anxious'(65.4%). After confirming which their purchasing item is GM foods, 'they will buy it case by case'(60.1%) or 'they will never buy it'(27.9%). The most reason of never buying GM foods was 'harmful to health'(82.3%). The first reliable information sources on GM foods were medical institutes and professionals. The knowledges about GM foods were significantly higher in 20's and 'less than 1year' of marriage duration than the other groups(p<0.05). On the purchase attitude of GM foods, the 20's responded favorably compared to other groups (p<0.01). Subjects' opinion on the necessity of development on GM foods tended to higher in 40's and 'less than 2 million won' of monthly income than the other groups. For the reason about necessity of it's development, 'nutritional, functionality and quality improvement' was 53.7%. In conclusion, many consumers regard that GM foods is not yet safe for health. Accordingly, government and research institutes should examine thoroughly and research continuously for the safety of GM foods. They must announce to consumers accurate information about GM foods.

This study examined the pixel's expression trend and nature featured in contemporary fashion, which works as a basic unit symbolizing the digital image, paying attention to its formativeness. The work through this process aimed at suggesting an opportunity for recognition about pixel image utilized as a formative component beyond its simple meaning of unit and providing the fundamental materials for usage in creative fashion design reflecting the digital emotion in the future, In research method, literature review was followed on pixel and the empirical study about its image was also performed that was found in the modern fashion. As a result, the trend in pixel has these characteristics. Its first nature lies in its plane expression. It was printed as mosaic or graphic grid image or expressed through patchwork technique. Also, rather than a certain form or figure, its unique image was emphasized according to the applied color, size, and position. Second, a stepwise pattern in pixel was applied to external format for part of clothing, eye glass and necktie, indicating some interest and wit. Third, in application to plane and external shape, the graphically modernized effect was realized, not to mention the illusive image with cubic expression. As shown, the characteristics in contemporary fashion via pixel expression were given in fantastic image, optical humor, and reflection of digital value.

Namdaemun Market is located in the heart of history and has the volume and the budget for nearly half of the total Namdaemun. But it has been undergoing the crisis of stagnation without reviving the merit of only the 'jewelry' wholesale industrial cluster in the nation. The purposes of this study were that analyzed the status and design of jewelry in Namdaemun and identified the characteristics of successful domestic jewelery brands and then the revitalized the way of the Namdaemun jewelry industry. Problems being currently facing the Namdaemun jewelry shopping are most likely caused by products' design did not respond to changes quickly, while China's jewelry products are in leaps of the quality and the affordable jewelry market in Korea has lost the large number of the customers by china's cheap jewelry products. The most feature of successful domestic jewelry companies, Red Eye, Naughty Cat and Jackie Moon. put the most effort to unique design development and then constantly develope new designs to meet the diverse needs of consumers. It is a conclusion that the Namdaemun jewelry market need to produced under the name of brand not by the traditional whole sale market style. Development unique jewelry brand requires a high-end commercial strategy of the logo, packaging and interior. The high-end quality require for the advanced designs as well as the study of new materials needed for the advanced materials.

The purpose of this study was to investigate the quality characteristics of Dangmyon(starch vermicelli) prepared with mulberry leaves powder. Mulberry leaves powder was added in ratios (w/w) of 0% (CON), 0.5% (MD1), 1.0% (MD2), 1.5% (MD3). and 2.0%(MD4), and then proximate compositions, physicochemical properties, RVA, SEM, texture and sensory evaluations of the Dangmyon were measured. MD1~MD4 samples showed higher contents of moisture, crude lipid, crude protein and crude ash as well as pH compared to control (p<0.001). In terms of color, lightness (L), yellowness (b), and redness (a) decreased as the mulberry leaves powder increased. The results of RVA properties analysis on all samples showed that control had the highest. With regard to the texture of Dangmyon samples, the scores of hardness, adhesiceness, gumminess, chewiness, resilience of CON was significantly higher than the samples MD1~MD4 (p<0.001), but the scores of springiness, cohesiveness was not significantly among samples. The result of observation on the cross section of Dangmyon added with mulberry leaves powder showed that number, size of cavity more increase compared to the control. In sensory evaluation, the scores of appearance, flavor, taste and overall preference for MD3 were significantly higher than the samples (CON, MD1, MD2, and MD4). From the findings, this study suggests that 1.5% addition of mulberry leaves powder was effective for preparation of Dangmyon in the aspects of the consumer acceptability.
