Filipino Mothers' Beliefs about Parenting: A Question of Independence
Schulze, Pamela A.
Contemporary Issues in Early Childhood, v5 n3 p391-395 2004
The author discusses research on Filipino mothers' socialization goals and beliefs about the role of other adults in disciplining their children. The results reveal that Filipinos have a collectivistic orientation, but that they nevertheless encourage independence in their children. The implications of these results are discussed in light of the current debate about the usefulness of individualism and collectivism as a heuristic for interpreting cultural differences.
