Constructing Identities: Being a "Mother" and Being a "Teacher" during the Experience of Starting Childcare.
Dalli, Carmen
European Early Childhood Education Research Journal, v10 n2 p85-101 2002
Deconstructs case studies of parents' and teachers' experiences as children started child care. Argues that mothers and teachers defined their roles against the background of dominant societal discourses about motherhood and early childhood teaching. However, while teachers spoke about themselves as less powerful than mothers in influencing children's experiences, observations suggested that children's experiences were ones in which they learned to "fit in" with their teachers' expectations.
