Cross-Cultural Child Rearing Practices: Implications for School Psychologists.
Escovar, Peggy L.; Lazarus, Philip J.
The knowledge of cross-cultural child-rearing practices to aid school psychologists is illustrated in this paper. A literature review of child-rearing practices is provided, focusing on: (1) children's social, cultural, and psychological development; (2) the school psychologist's identification of culturally bound aspects of child development; and (3) the effect of social class and degree of acculturation as moderators of other variables. Hispanic child-rearing practices are used to illustrate how school psychologists, by understanding cultural practices, can be effective instruments of educational change and knowledgeable child advocates.
