DOI : 10.5934/kjhe.2015.24.4.463
The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of paternal parenting sense of competence, paternal satisfaction, conflict-coping behaviors, and preschooler's emotional regulation on preschooler's social skills. Participants were 85 5- to 6-year-old preschoolers(41 boys, 44 girls) and their fathers. The Social Skill Rating Scale(Suh, 2004), the Parenting Sense of Competence(Shin & Chung, 1998), the Parental Satisfaction Scale(Seo & Lee, 2002), Conflict-coping behaviors(Cho & Kim, 2000) and the Emotional regulation(Kim & Kim, 1999) were used. Collected data were analyzed by descriptive statistics, t-test, correlation analysis and multiple regression analysis. The major findings were summarized as follows: (1) there were no differences between the boys' and girls' social skills. (2) parental satisfaction and emotional regulation explained social skills - cooperation. (3) conflict-coping behaviors(rationality and request for others) and emotional regulation explained social skills - self-control. (4) emotional regulation explained social skills - assertion. In conclusion, parental satisfaction, conflict-coping behaviors, and preschooler's emotional regulation influence differently according to the subscale of preschooler's social skills.

The purpose of this study was to examine the psychometric property of the Children's Behavior Questionnaire(CBQ), including reliability, content validity, construct validity, cross validity, and concurrent validity with EAS(Emotionality, Activity, Sociability) scale. The CBQ is a caregiver report measure designed to provide a detailed assessment of temperament in children 3 to 7 years of age. In this study, two groups of participants were included to check cross validity. The first group of participants were 108 preschoolers, 3 to 7 years of age attending kindergartens or child care centers, and their mothers. The second group of participants were 168 preschoolers and their mothers. The CBQ subscales demonstrate adequate internal consistencies. Also, exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses of the CBQ scale reliably recover a three-factor solution indicating three broad dimension of temperament: extraversion/surgency, negative affectivity, and effortful control. Evidence for concurrent validity derives from results of correlation analysis with EAS scale.

DOI : 10.5934/kjhe.2015.24.4.499
The purposes of this study were to examine the general levels of family strength, self-determination and life satisfaction perceived by university students. Also, this study aimed to verify the mediating effect of self-determination between family strength and life satisfaction. The subjects of this study were 350 university students in Korea and surveyed by self-reported questionnaires. The data was analysed by descriptive statistics, correlation, regression analysis, and Sobel test using SPSS 20.0. The results of the analysis were as follows. First, the levels of family strength, self-determination, life satisfaction perceived by university students were found to be higher than the middle score. Second, in the process of verification for seeking mediating effect of students' self-determination between family strength and life satisfaction, step1 showed that family strength revealed significant effects on life satisfaction level(
, p<.001). And in step2, family strength affected students' self-determination significantly(
, p<.001). Step3 which used family strength(
, p<.001) and self-determination(
, p<.001) together showed that self-determination had mediating effects between family strength and life satisfaction of students. It was proved significantly by Sobel test(Z=8.83, p<.001). Therefore, in order to enhance life satisfaction of university students, integrative services and systematic intervention programs as family education are required.

Jung, Soon Hwa ; Han, kyung soo ;
Korean Journal of Human Ecology, volume 24, issue 4, 2015, Pages 513~529
DOI : 10.5934/kjhe.2015.24.4.513
This study performed corroborative analysis by establishing hypothesis so as to corroboratively define the effect on brand attitude of psychological risk recognition in the case where consumers reading negative media news related to bakery recognize crisis communication on the basis of which point. According to corroborative analysis, the role of psychological crisis perception as parameter is confirmed in the causal relation between crisis communication recognition and brand attitude. Such result of study confirms that the positive change in crisis communication recognition reduces psychological risk perception to bakery products and such psychological risk perception eventually become factor which affects brand attitude over products. Such result of study suggests that when reading negative media news on bakery, the influence on consumer's evaluation of news on the basis of certain point and the influence on the formation of causal relation between psychological risk perception and brand attitude has scientific ground. In the aspect, the main result of this study is to find the clue that when comparing precedent study between crisis communication recognition and brand attitude, psychological risk perception is realized with brand attitude as media by verifying the parameter role of psychological risk perception.

The purpose of this study is to analyze the aesthetic characteristic of men's costume in the Renaissance period. Fashion is a reflection of Zeitgeist. The ideal aesthetic values of each period create the concept of ideal beauty for that period. Costume represents the ideal beauty of a particular period. The aesthetic characteristic of men's costume in the age of Renaissance was analyzed in terms of four categories: the beauty of male body, sublime beauty, sensual beauty, and artistic beauty. First, for the beauty of male body, the men in the age of Renaissance enlarged their chests and shoulders by inserting a pad in them in order to express their masculine beauty of human body by emphasizing their sexual organ. Second, for the sublime beauty, men's costume was exaggerated by using a pad, a ruff collar and slash. In this period, men intended to represent their power and dignity through horizontal extension in their costume. Third, for the sensual beauty, erotic emphasis were made through physical elements. In order to show off sexual charms, men padded their costumes and introduced the codpiece. Last, for the artistic beauty in the age of the Renaissance, men's costume showed proportional, balanced and symmetrical beauty. And men's costume was made of rich brocades, which were embroidered and encrusted with jewels.

In this research in order to grasp the recent research trends of clothing comfort in Korea, 584 theses have been analyzed about the forms, contents and subjects of their researches which have been published in four Korean Journals from 2000 to 2012. The results are as follows: Many of the research contents were on the clothing comfort and environmental adaptation clothes in all journals. Handle, skin temperature, clothing pressure and working clothes showed the highest frequency ln the key words. The review studies were the fewest, and experimental or survey researches were largely conducted. The research forms showed the significant differences according to the research contents. The subjects were largely focused on those aged from 18 to 29, and among the research subjects on clothing comfort, female were more than male. However, in the researches on clothing quantity and clothes wearing conditions, many of them were the studies whose subjects were both men and women. The male and old subjects increased more and more. The number of the theses in the field of clothing environmentology showed the gradually increasing tendency. The most rates were the theses on clothing comfort, but as the number of those on environment adaptation clothes increased more and more, the research contents in the two fields showed much the same. Though the attention to aging and smart clothes is increasing, the research on this is very few. Therefore, it is thought that the study on this field will have to be conducted actively.

During a design process of a protective equipment for sports activities, minimizing movement restrictions is important for enhancing its functions particularly for protection. This study presents a three-dimensional(3D) modeling methodology for designing baseball catcher's leg guards that will allow maximum possible performance, while providing necessary protection. 3D scanning is performed on three positions frequently used by a catcher during the course of a game by putting markings on the subject's legs at 3cm intervals : a standing, a half squat with knees bent to 90 degrees and 120 degrees of knee flexion. Using data obtained from the 3D scan, we analyzed the changes in skin length, radii of curvatures, and cross-sectional shapes, depending on the degree of knee flexion. The results of the analysis were used to decide an on the ideal segmentation of the leg guards by modeling posture. Knee flexions to 90 degrees and to
induced lengthwise extensions than a standing. In particular, the vertical length from the center of the leg increases to a substantially higher degree when compared to those increased from the inner and the outer side of the leg. The degree of extension is varied by positions. Therefore, the leg guards are segmented at points where the rate of increase changed. It resulted in a three-part segmentation of the leg guards at the thigh, the knee, and the shin. Since the 120 degree knee-flexion posture can accommodate other positions as well, the related 3D data are used for modeling Leg Guard (A) with the loft method. At the same time, Leg Guard (B) was modeled with two-part segmentation without separating the knee and the shin as in existing products. A biomechanical analysis of the new design is performed by simulating a 3D dynamic analysis. The analysis revealed that the three-part type (A) leg guards required less energy from the human body than the two-part type (B).

This study examined the effect of ambivalent fashion consuming tendency on continuous information search and fashion store selection. Surveys period was from Jan. 8th to Jan. 20th in 2014. The subjects of this study were the young 218 women who had the shopping experiences with ambivalent fashion consuming tendency in their 20s of Pusan and Kyung-nam. These surveys referred to the relevant preceding researches and were completed by some pilot researches (focus group interview, paper-pencil test). The data was analyzed by frequency analysis, reliability analysis (Cronbach's
), factor analysis and regression analysis. The main results of this study were summarized like following: First, this study was based on the definition and characteristics of the ambivalent fashion consuming tendency. The current ambivalent fashion consuming tendency consisted of price ambivalence, trend ambivalence and brand ambivalence. The consumer's demographic characteristics affected trend ambivalence, brand ambivalence. Second, continuous information search was composed of entertaining information search and rational information search. Third, ambivalence fashion consuming tendency had a strong influence on continuous information search (information search and share activity). Forth, the price ambivalence, trend ambivalence and brand ambivalence, which is the factors of ambivalent fashion consuming tendency, significantly impacted on selecting the fashion store. In conclusion, ambivalent fashion consuming tendency is main related factor impacting on continuous information search and fashion store selection.

The purposes of this study were to segment outdoor wear market based on consumer knowledge and consumer demand for function/design development, and to examine the differences of demographic characteristics and purchase behavior among the segmented markets. Data were collected using a questionnaire survey. Respondents were adults aged over 20 and who have experiences of purchasing outdoor wear. The survey was made up of the questions on consumer knowledge to outdoor wear, consumer demand for product development, purchase behavior, and demographic characteristics. Frequency analysis, descriptive analysis and chi-squared test were used to conduct the data analysis on 454 questionnaires. The results of this study were as follows. It showed that the consumer knowledge was a little high and the consumer demands for function/design development were high. Six segmented markets based on consumer knowledge and consumer demand for function development were significantly different in terms of gender, income, purchase frequency and total item holdings. Also, six segmented markets based on consumer knowledge and consumer demand for design development were significantly different in terms of age, income, purchase frequency, purchase objective, purchase place and total item holdings. Compared to the segmented markets based on the consumer demands for product development, the gender was the key of the marketing strategies for the segmented markets by the consumer demand for function development while the age was the one in the markets by the consumer demand for design development. After considering all the results, the characteristics of the segmented markets were made out and the marketing strategies were established.
