The Identification of Texas Anglo, Black and Chicano Child Rearing Practices in Relation to Child Care Career Competencies.
Stewart, Ida Santos; Stone, Norma K.
Cultural factors in child rearing and child care center practices which may influence training for child care personnel in Texas were surveyed to: (1) identify Anglo, Black, and Chicano child rearing practices, (2) identify child care center practices, (3) compare regional practices in relation to culture, and (4) identify the relation of cultural factors to vocational training for child care personnel. Questionnaires were administered to representative samples of parents, child care practitioners, and professionals in six geographic regions of Texas. A computer program was used to examine relationships and determine significances. Responses are presented in narrative and tabular form. Discussion is organized around response data on family relationships, discipline, feeding-eating practices, sleeping behaviors, toilet-training, verbal interactions, child care center attributes, and parent-center relationships. It was concluded that there are few major cultural differences in Anglo, Black, and Chicano child-rearing practices and child care center practices, and that cultural factors may not be as important to vocational training of child care personnel as had been thought. The instruments used in the study are appended. (MF)
