Understanding Individuals and Families: A Cross-Cultural Perspective.
Smith, Delores E.
Journal of Home Economics, v86 n1 p3-8 Spr 1994
Semistructured interviews were held with foreign-born university students: 12 from Africa, 10 from Asia, and 8 from South America and the Caribbean. Respect for authority was highly valued in their cultures, a quality U.S. children were thought to lack. They thought U.S. teachers gave impractical and abstract answers. Authoritarian parenting was not viewed as detrimental. (SK)
