Helpers, Mothers, and Preachers: The Multiple Roles and Discourses of Family Child Care Providers in an African-American Community.
Bromer, Juliet
Early Childhood Research Quarterly, v16 n3 p313-27 2001
Examines communication and discourse styles of African American family child care providers serving low-income families, particularly the advice and help offered to parents. Caregiver interviews reveal ways providers combine both mainstream professional ideas and more indigenous conceptions of communication strategies and help-giving to provide appropriate support for families. Suggests use of this combination of support strategies for training programs. (JPB)
