Everyday Instruction: A Comparison of Mexican American and Anglo Mothers and Their Preschool Children.
Moreno, Robert P.
Hispanic Journal of Behavioral Sciences, v19 n4 p527-39 Nov 1997
During a 48-hour period, 36 Mexican American and Anglo mothers were videotaped at home teaching their 5-year-old child to tie shoelaces. Contrary to previous research, Mexican American mothers used less "controlling" and nonverbal teaching behaviors than Anglo mothers. Groups differences were also found for relationships between maternal teaching behaviors and child performance. Contains 25 references. (Author/SV)
