Rocking & Rolling: Supporting Infants, Toddlers, and Their Families. Understanding the Influence of Culture on Caregiving Practices . . . From the inside out
Im, Janice; Parlakian, Rebecca; Sanchez, Sylvia
Young Children, v62 n5 p65-66 Sep 2007
Everyone brings specific values, beliefs, and assumptions about child rearing and child development to their work with infants and toddlers. Even two teachers who share the same ethnic culture may not share the same beliefs about what is best for young children. Conflicts around these issues can arise with colleagues and families in early care and education programs. Recognizing and acknowledging another person's point of view and coming to a shared solution is critical in providing high-quality care to infants and toddlers. In this article, the authors discuss two particular areas when caring for infants and toddlers--self-knowledge and knowledge of culturally informed teaching.
