Contemporary Issues in Early Childhood, v10 n4 p389-392 2009
The present research was conducted to study the intergenerational differences in parental beliefs of the Lobana community in the rural district of Jammu in the Jammu and Kashmir state of India. The sample comprised 30 mothers and 30 grandmothers, selected from the R.S. Pura tehsil of the Jammu district. Data was collected using a modified parental belief survey. The results reveal that the majority of the mothers were educated and had studied to the higher secondary level, while the majority of the grandmothers were illiterate. The mothers' and grandmothers' views reported from the modified parental belief survey demonstrate a varied perception between the two groups. There was a difference between views expressed about spoiling a child, floor freedom, and discipline and control. The importance of storytelling was emphasised by the grandmothers.
