Han, Ji Hyeon ; Yee, Young Hwan ; Kim, Jung Hee ;
Korean Journal of Human Ecology, volume 24, issue 5, 2015, Pages 603~615
DOI : 10.5934/kjhe.2015.24.5.603
The purpose of this study, targeting Korean and Chinese fathers(459) having 3-5 year-old children, was to verify whether fathers' parenting involvement, parenting style and sociality of children are different with nationality. Furthermore, it was examined the effect of fathers' parenting involvement and style depending on development of children's sociality. In case of the fathers' parenting involvement, Korean fathers showed higher value compared to Chinese fathers. Chinese children had higher sociality than Korean children. Fathers' parenting involvement and style had positive relationship with children's sociality in Korean fathers and children. Such trend was similar to Chinese fathers and children. Finally, it was found that the fathers' parenting involvement and style played a pivotal role in children's sociality. Especially, higher 'Development Support' among sub-factors of parenting involvement and 'warmth' of parenting style led to higher sociality in children.

Chung, Jee-Nha ; Kim, Kyoung-Hoe ;
Korean Journal of Human Ecology, volume 24, issue 5, 2015, Pages 617~629
DOI : 10.5934/kjhe.2015.24.5.617
The purpose of this study was to explore the effects of children's self-regulation and teacher-child relationships on children's social behaviors. Participants were 239 4- to 5-year-old children(114 boys, 125 girls) and their 23 teachers. The teachers completed rating scales to measure children's social behaviors and teacher-child relationships. Children's self-regulation was assessed by a mother reported questionnaire. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, Pearson's correlations and stepwise multiple regression analysis. The major results of this study were as follows: First, Children's social behaviors were partially correlated with children's self-regulation and teacher-child relationships. Second, The most influential factor by children's social behaviors was teacher-child relationship. Specially, teacher-child intimacy was the most powerful factor predicting children's asocial behavior and prosocial behavior. While teacher-child conflict was the most powerful factor influencing children's aggressive behavior, hyperactive-distractible behavior and anxious-fearful behavior. Findings are discussed in terms of the importance of teacher-child relationships in the context of program development and guidance for maladjusted children.

Cho, Yoon Joo ;
Korean Journal of Human Ecology, volume 24, issue 5, 2015, Pages 631~643
DOI : 10.5934/kjhe.2015.24.5.631
In that marriage immigrant women' birth rate are higher than those of Korea women, they were selected to suggest pronatalism in Korea. The purpose of this study is to explore the child birth intention of marriage immigrant women. One of qualitative study, case study was used in methodology. Participants were 10 marriage immigrant women, depth interview were conducted. The major results were categorized facilitators and inhibitors. Facilitators were 'number of origin family members', 'absence or weakness of family planning', 'successful experience of the first child birth', 'no difficulty in childbearing', 'recommendation of mother-in-law', 'child' positive effect in Korea life adjustment'. Inhibitors were 'insufficient economic condition', 'husband' old age and the opposite of mother-in-law', 'dissatisfaction with marriage life', 'lack of government' support'. Based on this results, practical implications and interventions were suggested.

The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of socio-demographic variables, adult attachment and emotion regulation style on psychological well-being of university students. We conducted a survey on 318 university students in Cheongju-si and Hongseong gun. T-test, Pearson' productive correlation, hierarchical regression analysis were used. The results were as follows: First, there was a significant difference in emotion regulation style according to university student's sex. In other words, females used more support-seeking style than males did. Second, male university students' psychological well-being was high at more active style, less anxiety attachment and avoidant/distractive style, older students, less avoidance attachment, and higher economic status. Third, female university students' psychological well-being was high at less avoidant/distractive style and more active style, older students, less anxiety attachment, and more support-seeking style. In conclusion, emotion regulation style was the strongest factor to increase university student's psychological well-being among other variables. The implications and limitations of this study were discussed.
A Study on the comparison of BMI, Body-comparison, Body-satisfaction, and Behaviors of Appearance Managements according to the MBTI's Typology of Adolescents
Wee, Eun Hah ;
Korean Journal of Human Ecology, volume 24, issue 5, 2015, Pages 663~676
DOI : 10.5934/kjhe.2015.24.5.663
The purpose of this study was to examine whether any differences can be found in body comparison, body satisfaction, and appearance management behaviors according to the MBTI's typology among male and female adolescents in Gwangju and South Jeolla province, South Korea. It was conducted by a self-report survey of 534 male and female high school students in Gwangju and South Jeolla province. The collected survey data were analyzed by Means, Cronbach's
, Factor analysis, and t-test using the SPSS/PC WIN 19.0 statistical program. The results were as follows: Introversion Type(I) teens tend to think a thinner body is closer to the ideal when compared to Extroversion type(E) students. They spend less time comparing their bodies with their peers. However, they usually have lower levels of body satisfaction and are more likely to be concerned about acne. Intuition Type(N) students tend to have a body figure that is a little plumper than Sensing Type(S) teens. They are inclined to try and lose weight and are concerned about acne. Sensing Type(S) students are more likely to compare their bodies with their peers than Intuition Type(N) teens. However, they are generally less satisfied with their bodies. Feeling Type(F) teens are more concerned with harmony and personal hygiene the Thinking Type(T) students. Judging Type (J) students generally want to be thinner than their current body type when compared with Perceiving Type(P) teens. When Judging Type(J) teens decide they need to be on a diet, they do their best to lose weight even if it means exercising and forgoing their favorite foods. These results indicate that it would be more effective to offer guidance to teens while taking into consideration their differences in terms of appearance management behaviors based on the MBTI Topology of Adolescents.

Lines of non-extension (LoNEs) on torso surface during arm abduction were investigated to provide appropriate location for inserting less-extensible yarns which can be used as seams for design and or clothing pressure variation. As experimental methods, reference points about 3 cm apart were marked on the skin and scanned at 30,
arm abduction. Skin deformation was measured by connecting reference points in horizontal, vertical and various angles of diagonal directions. Observation of skin deformation was made within the separated sections of the torso as well as integrated ones to cover the various occasions of design application. LoNEs of front and back torso were provided as mapping lines. Actual compression wear of three types was constructed with different pattern reduction rate at each separated section using LoNEs as boundary cutting lines. Clothing pressure and subjective evaluations of those three compression wear were evaluated by six subjects. LoNEs found in this study were useful as seam lines to differentiate clothing pressure at each part of the body, providing positive wear sensation. It is also expected that LoNEs can be paths for less strechable conductive yarns of IT-integrated upper garments.

This study analyses "Survey of Health and Behavior of Children and Adolescents" which is conducted by National Youth Policy Institute that investigated influential factors in difference between actual obesity and perceptional obesity. GLM (Generalized Linear Mode) was carried out to estimate the effects on the eating habits and physical activities and multinomial logit analysis was carried out to examine the influential factors in difference between actual, obesity and perceptional obesity. The results of this study are shown as follows. First 72.0% of total respondents showed the congruence between actual obesity and perceptional obesity and 24.6% of total respondents perceived them fatter than actual. The remaining 3.5% perceived them thinner than actual. Second, the main effects of actual obesity and perceptional obesity on eating habits were statistically significant, but interaction effect between them was not statistically significant. The main effects of actual obesity and perceptional obesity on physical activities and interaction effect between them were all statistically significant. Third, the influential factors in difference between actual obesity and perceptional obesity were gender, age, school record, education of parents, subjective economic status, and living together with family.

This study was performed to investigate the physicochemical activities such as mineral contents, antioxidantant activities,
-glucosidase activity, and angiotensin I-converting enzyme(ACE) inhibitory effect of Dangmyon (starch vermicelli) prepared with mulberry leaves powder. Mulberry leaves powder was added in ratio (w/w) of 0% (CON), 0.5% (MD1), 1.0% (MD2), 1.5% (MD3), and 2.0% (MD4), and then mineral contents, total polyphenol contents, antioxidant, antidiabetic, and antihypertensive activities of the Dangmyon were measured. The mineral contents were significantly increased by the addition of mulberry leaves powder (p<0.001). The total polyphenol contents and antioxidant activities of Dangmyon were significantly increased by the addition of mulberry leaves powder (p<0.05). In terms of antidiabetic and antihypertensive activities showed MD1~MD4 samples higher contents of ACE and
-glucosidase compared to control (p<0.05). Our findings suggest that addition of mulberry leaves powder to Dangmyon may improve the effects of anti-oxidation, anti-DM, and anti-hypertension and provide health benefits of consumers.

The purpose of this study was to investigate the quality characteristics and descriptive analysis of Yanggaeng prepared with Lycii fructus extract (LD). LD were added in ratios (w/w) of 0 (C), 1.5 (LY1), 3.0 (LY2), 4.5 (LY3), and 6% (LY4), and then proximate compositions, physicochemical properties, and sensory evaluations of the Yanggaeng were measured LY1~LY4 samples showed higher contents of crude lipid, crude protein and crude ash as well as
compared to control (p<0.001). pH and lightness (L) of samples decreased as the LD increased. With regard to the texture of Yanggaeng samples, the scores of hardness, adhesiveness, springness, and cohesiveness was significantly increased by the Addition of LD (p<0.05, p<0.01). For the descriptive analysis, ten panelist generated and evaluated 29 sensory attributes for the Yanggaeng, and there were significant differences among the samples for all 26 sensory attributes. For the descriptive data, principal component analysis (PCA) was performed to summarize the sensory characteristics of the Yanggaeng. The results of PCA showed that the positive attributes, e.g. savoury, were closely in relationship with LY2 and LY3. Form the findings, this study suggests that 3~4.5% addition of LD was effective for preparation of Yanggaeng in the aspects of the consumer acceptability.
