Dosanjh, J. S.; Ghuman, Paul A. S.
Early Child Development and Care, v126 p39-55 Dec 1996
Used qualitative data to compare child-rearing practices of second-generation Punjabi mothers living in England and those of Punjabis in India using a qualitative analysis. Found that compared to Indian Punjabis, British Punjabis had smaller families, less preference for sons, were less likely to massage and bathe infants traditionally or to breastfeed; reported more father participation in child rearing.
