Ecological Correlates of the Educative Style of Afro-American Children.
Shade, Barbara J.; Edwards, Patricia A.
Journal of Negro Education, v56 n1 p88-99 Win 1987
By perpetuating habits, values, and attitudes that successfully mediate the interaction between the individual and the social environment, the Afro-American home environment prepares children to live in a society that devalues individuals whose social and ethnic origins differ from the accepted norm. Afro-American families stress social rather than instrumental cognition. (BJV)
