  • The purpose of this study is to find the correlation between authoritative parenting attitudes, emotional bonding of adolescents with parents, impulsiveness and cellular phone addiction. The paper will also explore the mediating role of impulsiveness between adolescents' emotional bonding with parents, authoritative parenting attitudes and cellular phone addiction. The subjects were made up of 237 adolescents. The data were analyzed with frequency, ANOVA, Pearson's correlation and structural equation modeling by PASW and AMOS. The instruments used were Lee et al. (1997) Parenting Attitude, Hudson (1982) Child's Attitude Toward Parent (CATP), Lee (2001) BIS (Barnett Impulsiveness Scale) and Lee (2008) Cellular Phone Addiction. The major findings were as follows: the sex of the adolescents was significantly different with cellular phone addiction and their family economic status was significantly different with adolescents' emotional bonding with parents and cellular phone addiction. Authoritative parenting attitude was negatively correlated with adolescents' emotional bonding with parents and positively correlated with impulsiveness and cellular phone addiction. Emotional bonding of adolescents with parents was negatively correlated with impulsiveness and cellular phone addiction. Adolescents' emotional bonding with parents influenced impulsiveness and cellular phone addiction negatively, and impulsiveness mediated the effects of adolescents' emotional bonding with parents, authoritative parenting attitude and cellular phone addiction. Authoritative parenting attitude influenced adolescents' impulsiveness and cellular phone addiction positively, but impulsiveness influenced cellular phone addiction positively. In conclusion, it is important to intervene in adolescents' cellular phone addiction through special education programs and counseling to build adolescents' emotional bonding with parents and to reduce impulsiveness.

  • Objectives : This study examined drinking habits, anxiety, and impulsiveness in employed women. Methods : We sampled 925 residents aged over 20 years in Gwanak-gu of Seoul. In the process, we divided subjects into employed women and unemployed women groups and then used the Korean Version of Alcohol Use Disorder Identification Test (AUDIT-K), State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI), and Barratt Impulsiveness Scale (BIS) to identify patterns in subjects' alcohol drinking, anxiety and impulsiveness. Results : Among the 925 respondents, 95.7% drank alcohol, and after the analysis, female problematic drinking ($12{\leq}AUDIT-K{\leq}25$) and alcohol dependence ($AUDIT-K{\geq}26$) was apparent in 61 (9.5%) and 2 respondents (0.3%), respectively. Female respondents who had jobs tended to drink more and exhibit higher ratios of problematic drinking, with a higher exposure to alcohol than those that were unemployed. The psychological attributes related to female respondents' alcohol problems related to state of anxiety and impulsiveness. Employed women respondents also showed a higher state of anxiety and impulsiveness than unemployed women. Conclusion : Controlling the frequency of exposure to alcohol, anxiety, and impulsiveness in employed women should be considered to be crucial controlling factors related to the hazards of excessive drinking.

The subjects were selected randomly from 4th, 5th, and 6th graders in those schools. The number of subjects selected was 601. The measurement tools used were the general information questionnaire, computer game addiction scales, impulsiveness scales. aggression scales, and emotional intelligence scales.
