Ethnic Variations in Personal Social Networks and Parenting.
MacPhee, David; And Others
Child Development, v67 n6 p3278-95 Dec 1996
Low-income parents completed a social map and measures of self-esteem and child-rearing practices. Results indicated that American Indians had an interconnected web of kin; Hispanics, close-knit social networks; and Anglos, diffuse but supportive networks. Affective dimensions of social networks were related to parenting. Parental self-efficacy was related to child-rearing practices across ethnic groups. (BC)
