Examined cultural patterning in situational variability in mother-infant interactions among middle-class Anglo and Puerto Rican mothers and 12- to 15-month-old firstborns. Found that the emphasized socialization goals and childrearing strategies were consonant with individualistic orientations for Anglo mothers and sociocentric orientations for Puerto Rican mothers. Situational variability showed a cultural patterning consistent with long-term socialization goals and childrearing beliefs. (Author/KB)
