Parent-Child Play across Cultures: Advancing Play Research
Roopnarine, Jaipaul L.; Davidson, Kimberly L.
American Journal of Play, v7 n2 p228-252 Win 2015
In this article, the authors argue for a greater understanding of children's play across cultures through better integration of scientific thinking about the developed and developing societies, through consideration of socialization beliefs and goals, and, finally, through the use of more complex models in research investigations. They draw on theoretical propositions in anthropology and psychology to describe and interpret the meaning of parent-child play activities in the context of everyday socialization practices in societies in various stages of economic development.
