Accentuating the Negative: Views of Preschool Staff about Mothers in Japan.
Holloway, Susan D.
Early Education and Development, v11 n5 p617-32 Oct 2000
Interviewed Japanese preschool staff about mothers' child-rearing strategies and the home-school relationship. Found that most respondents believed mothers should prioritize spending time with their children and should provide firm behavior guidance, but did not view cognitive stimulation as important to the maternal role. Few believed mothers discharged their responsibilities adequately. Staff views depended on their school's general philosophy. (Author/KB)
