The Effects of Paternal Smoking on the Developmental Levels of Children
Jung, Sung Young ;
Korean Journal of Child Studies, volume 34, issue 5, 2013, Pages 1~16
DOI : 10.5723/KJCS.2013.34.5.1
This study examined the effects of paternal smoking on the developmental levels of children younger than 3 years of age. For this purpose, the paper made use of data from the Panel Study on Korean Children which has been released in 3 waves - 2008, 2009, and 2010. The main findings are as follows. First, the smoking characteristics of parents (e.g., the amount of smoking in the morning, the time starting the first cigarette of the day) rather than the duration of smoking or whether the father smoked or not revealed significant relationships with developmental levels. Second, children whose fathers preferred smoking in the morning exhibited lower activity levels or more areas with developmental delays than did their counterparts. Third, children whose fathers smoked more than 11 cigarettes a day were more likely to show problematic developmental levels, especially among those whose fathers responded so only for 1 year out of 3 years. Based on these findings, this study suggests that future research may be conducted, relating to the mechanisms through which morning smoking affects children and possible interventions for such morning smokers.

The purpose of this research was to investigate meaning of teachers as they manifest themselves in the emotional regulation of 2year old infants in a daycare center. In addition, the research attempts to provide basic research data that can be used as a guideline for teacher's awareness, roles, attitudes, and classroom management for infant's emotional education in the future. To achieve this goal, participatory observation was conducted in a child care center class for infants under 2 years old from January 17 to January 29, 2012. The teacher is defined as follow : Teachers are authority figures whose image is that of absolute authority, and coupled with their dual role of passive caretakers. Additionally, they function as guides who guided infants through the process of emotional socialization, and played the central role of emotional contagion from whose expression speech and atmosphere the said infants receive much influence. Such results seemed to indicate that teachers today do not fully comprehend the importance of their roles in influencing the emotion regulation of infants.
The Development and the Effectiveness of a Career Group Counseling Program for Career Maturity, Career-Identity, and Career-Decision Self-Efficacy in High School Students
Kim, Sarah Hyoung-Sun ;

DOI : 10.5723/KJCS.2013.34.5.43
The purpose of this study was to develop a Career Group Counseling Program to increase the career maturity, career-identity and career-decision self-efficacy of high school students, and to examine the effectiveness of such a program. In order to evaluate the effectiveness of the program thus developed, an experimental group which was exposed to the program and a control group without exposure to the program were compared. The program was administered over eight weekly sessions, each session lasting ninety minutes. The subjects in this study consisted of twenty four students. The experimental group and a control group were organized with twelve students in each. For the purpose of data processing, SPSS 16.0 was used to analyze the statistical results. The Career Maturity Scale, the Identity Scale, and Career Decision-Making Self-Efficacy Scale were used in a pre-test, post-test, and follow-up test. The findings of this study were as follows : The treatment group exhibited a significant statistically increasing degree of career maturity, career-identity and career-decision self-efficacy levels in comparison to the control group. The results of the study indicated the effectiveness of this newly developed Career Group Counseling Program on increasing career maturity, career-identity and career-decision self-efficacy levels.

Kim, So A ; Kang, Min Ju ;
Korean Journal of Child Studies, volume 34, issue 5, 2013, Pages 61~77
DOI : 10.5723/KJCS.2013.34.5.61
This study examined the influence of cognitive-emotional regulation, emotional self-disclosure and maternal psychological control on adolescent depression. The participants in this study consisted of 280 middle school students and 287 high school students in Gyung Gi Province, Korea. The results of this study were as follows. First, the high school students exhibited higher scores on depression than middle school students while there were no meaningful differences in maternal psychological control, cognitive-emotional regulation and emotional self-disclosure. Second, both middle and high school students' depression levels were positively associated with maternal psychological control and maladaptive cognitive-emotional regulation. Both middle and high school students' depression was negatively associated with emotional self-disclosure. Third, maladaptive cognitive-emotional regulation and maternal psychological control had a significant effect on both middle and high school students' depression levels, while emotional self-disclosure had a significant effect on high school students' depression only. In both age groups there was an interactive effect of maladaptive cognitive-emotional regulation and maternal psychological control on depression.

DOI : 10.5723/KJCS.2013.34.5.79
This study examined the effect of parenting knowledge and mother-caregiver relationship on maternal parenting stress. The participants in this study consisted of 297 mothers of 1~3 years old children at daycare centers in Daegu, Korea. The participants completed questionnaires on their parenting knowledge, mother-caregiver relationship, and parenting stress. The results indicated that mothers' parenting knowledge and parenting stress were not-significantly related, but mother-caregiver relationship and mothers'parenting stress were significantly related. A close look at the effect of parenting knowledge and mother-caregiver relationship on maternal parenting stress, while maternal parenting knowledge did not influenced directly parenting stress, mother-caregiver relationship was a significant variable predicting mother's parenting stress. In particular, when a mother and caregiver develop a positive relationship, maternal parenting stress was lower. These results seem to indicate that the positive relationship between mother and caregiver is very important.

DOI : 10.5723/KJCS.2013.34.5.99
This study examined the relationships between children's cool executive function(cool EF), hot executive function(hot EF) and self-regulation according to the developmental changes. Children aged 3-5 years (N = 104) participated in this study. The participants completed cool and hot EF tasks and teachers reported on the children's cognitive regulation, emotional regulation, and behavioral regulation by means of questionnaires. The results indicated that cool EF and hot EF had different developmental patterns according to different age groups. High levels of cool/hot EF predicted better abilities in terms of cognitive, emotional, and behavioral regulation respectively. The relationship between coo/hot EF and cognitive/behavioral regulation were moderated by age, except in the case of emotional regulation. This paper also offers a detailed discussion of results and recommendations for future studies.
The Relationship Between Self-Differentiation and Covert Narcissism in Terms of Teachers' Organization Citizenship Behavior in Childcare Centers
Min, Ha Young ;
Korean Journal of Child Studies, volume 34, issue 5, 2013, Pages 115~126
DOI : 10.5723/KJCS.2013.34.5.115
The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between self-differentiation and covert narcissism with organization citizenship behavior on the part of teachers in childcare centers. The subjects consisted of 522 teachers who worked in childcare centers in Daegu and Gyeongbuk Province. The data collected were analyzed by means of Pearson's correlation, and hierarchical regression, using SPSS Win 19.0. The results were as follows. (1) Self-differentiation was positively associated with organization citizenship behavior. However when covert narcissism was operating as control, self-differentiation was not associated with organization citizenship behavior. (2) Covert narcissism was negatively associated with organization citizenship behavior. (3) Between both covert narcissism and self-differentiation, only covert narcissism was associated with organization citizenship behavior. (4) There were observable interactional effects between self-differentiation and covert narcissism to organization citizenship behavior.
Korean Adolescents' Physical Health and Peer Relationships : The Mediating Effects of Self-perceived Health Status and Resilience
Lee, Boram ; Park, Hye Jun ; Lee, Kangyi ;
Korean Journal of Child Studies, volume 34, issue 5, 2013, Pages 127~144
DOI : 10.5723/KJCS.2013.34.5.127
The purpose of this study was (1) to examine the impact of chronic diseases on adolescent's peer relationships, and (2) to investigate the mediating effect of self-perceived health status and resilience on the relationship between their physical health states and peer relationships. The authors used the first-wave panel data from 'the Korean Children-Youth Panel Survey'. The sample included 2,351 first-grade of middle school students(boys 50.1%, girls 49.9%). Among the subjects examined 48.11% had chronic diseases. Using maximum likelihood estimation with Amos18(Arbuckle, 2009), SEM software, structural equation modeling was tested. The major findings were as follows : 1. Adolescents' chronic diseases had a negative impact on peer relationships. 2. Self-perceived health status and resilience had a mediating effect. This suggests that self-perceived health status and resilience could be protective factors when it comes to perceive peer relationships more positively for adolescents with chronic diseases. 3. Resilience was directly affected by self-perceived health status. This indicates that positive self-perception about their health status encourages adolescents with chronic diseases to be more resilient and to more positively affect their perception of their relationships with peers.
