Maternal Teaching of Preschool Children in Minority and Low Status Families: A Critical Review.
Moreno, Robert P.
Early Childhood Research Quarterly, v6 n3 p395-410 Sep 1991
Examines the comparative research on maternal teaching behaviors of minority and low-status families. Offers some exploratory data that reexamines the verbal teaching behavior of Chicana- and Anglo-American mothers while instructing their children to tie their shoelaces. Contrary to earlier studies, the findings support that ethnic differences in instruction may persist despite the mother's level of schooling. (Author/GLR)
