    Abstract PDF
    The purpose of this study was to define the concept of parenting philosophy and to explore the theoretical ground for suggesting the direction of Korean parenting philosophy. As a result, parenting philosophy meant how parenting factors, such as the view of the human development and the children, parenting values, parenting beliefs and parent-child relationships leading parents to support their children's cognitive, emotional, physical and social development, were established. Namely, parenting philosophy was defined as a meta-organization consisting of the recognition and value systems of the parent's overall rearing. Meanwhile, after exploring reality analysis and theoretical grounds, a direction was proposed as follows: First, it suggested that self-realization and democratic parenting philosophy with regard to the attitude of children's lives was warranted. Second, the parenting philosophy of the subjective formation of cognitive schema and the social and cultural interaction with regard to cognitive development was suggested. Third, the parenting philosophy of social support and social interest with regard to children's social relationships was suggested. The proposed direction was believed to help Korean parents reflect on competitive and realistic parenting and encouraged parents to have the right parenting attitude and behavior in order to nurture future generations.

    Abstract PDF
    The purpose of this study was to explore the learning experience process of single middle-aged female learners. Thus, 12 research participants in their 7th to 8th semester of a cyber university were interviewed directly by the researcher. The collected data were analyzed using grounded theory. As a result, 66 concepts, 25 sub-categories, and 11 categories were derived in the learning experience process of single middle-aged female learners. In addition, the learning experience process of crisis phase, challenge phase, effort phase, and transition phase which changed into four stages and a core category of the life transformation process through learning devotion were found. The participants entered the cyber university to make a transition through learning and relieve real life pain, but faced combining work and study difficulties, and pressure from online learning. However, the relationship from online and offline meeting with learning without social prejudice was formed and a positive internal motivation was improved. Based on these findings, single middle-aged female learners were able to prepare for their future life in a realistic way, identify their life with learning, and experience a life transformation that formed an active learning-ego. This result suggested that a lifelong learning support system in cyber universities should be established, considering individual specificity of the single middle-aged women.
