Values and Childrearing in the Home and Day Care Center: Issues for the 1980's.
Recent studies suggest that with more and more children in the United States being placed in day care centers, families are likely to become less powerful as agents of socialization. In this paper, eight value-laden areas of probable difference between staff members and parents concerning the process of child socialization are identified. These areas are discipline, sex role learning, aggressive behavior, racial tolerance, religion, self-direction versus conformity, academic emphasis, and sex education. Issues involved in these areas are briefly described and relevant research studies are cited when available. Recommendations for parents and day care workers are offered to encourage dialogue in these areas so as to increase the amount of consistency between homes and day care centers. Recommendations for further research in the area of parent/caregiver relationships are also suggested. (Author/MP)
