Contexts of Collaboration in Caregiving: Infant Interactions with Israeli Kibbutz Mothers and Caregivers.
Bornstein, Marc H.; Maital, Sharone L.; Tal, Joseph
Early Child Development and Care, v135 p145-71 Aug 1997
Compared caregiving activities of Israeli kibbutzim mothers, nonfamilial caregivers, and city homemaker mothers. Found that 5-month-olds differed in exploration and vocalization with different caregivers. Caregiving activities, interactions, and developmental processes provided by kibbutz mothers and "metepelet" (child care specialists) formed a complementary division of caregiving responsibilities different from that of homemaker mothers.
