Fenichel, Emily, Ed.
Bulletin of ZERO TO THREE: National Center for Infants, Toddlers, and Families, 2003., v23 n5 May 2003
"Zero to Three" is a single-focus bulletin of the National Center for Infants, Toddlers, and Families providing insight from multiple disciplines on the development of infants, toddlers, and their families. This issue focuses on the goals, expectations, and conflict in the relationship between culture and child caregiving and other care services. The articles are: (1) "Caregiver Goals and Societal Expectations" (Casper, Cooper, Finn and Stott); (2) "From Rocks to Diamonds: Mining the Riches of Diversity for Our Children" (Barrera); (3) "Listening to the Voices of Families: Thoughts, Hopes, and Fears in a Latino Community" (Stott and Halpern); (4) "Making New Choices Possible: Understanding Differences in Infant Feeding Practices between Latina Mothers and Anglo Health Care Providers" (Clark); (5) "A Relational and Sociocultural Approach in Services to a Mexican Family across Three Generations" (Rios Munoz); (6) "Talk to Your Baby: Honoring Diversity while Practicing from an Evidence Base" (Van Horn and Segal); (7) "Joining American Indian Systems of Care: The Complexities of Culturally Appropriate Practice" (Mayo-Willis and Hornstein); (8) "Cultural Models for Early Caregiving" (Finn); (9) "Barriers to Achieving Change: Dynamics of Social and Economic Differences in an Early Head Start Program" (Hallock); (10) "When Cultures Clash in Court: Expanding Understanding and Building on Hope" (Lederman); and (11) "Creating a Public Early Childhood Education System for a Pluralistic Parent Constituency: The Challenge of First 5 LA" (Cooper). Two additional articles describe an infant mental health evaluation process, and changes brought about by a new director at a child care center. Regular departments of the bulletin list Zero to Three publications, videotapes, and on-line resources, and announcements about Zero to Three staff. (HTH)
