Personal Storytelling as a Medium of Socialization in Chinese and American Families.
Miller, Peggy J.; And Others
Child Development, v68 n3 p557-68 Jun 1997
Examined the socialization functions of personal storytelling in Taiwanese and European American families. Multilevel analysis of naturally occurring stories regarding 2- to 5-year olds revealed that Chinese families' stories were more likely to convey moral and social standards than were European American families' stories. European Americans were more likely to use stories as entertainment and affirmation than Chinese families. (Author/KB)
