McCollum, Jeanette A.; McBride, Susan L.
Topics in Early Childhood Special Education, v17 n4 p494-519 Win 1997
Examines the assumption that the same characteristics of interactions between infants and caregivers are meaningful and important across cultures, using literature from very different cultures to illustrate relationships among cultural values, views of good parenting, and parents' interactions with their infants. Findings have implications for the validity of parent-infant interaction rating scales. (Author/DB)
