Raising Children in Chinese Immigrant Families: Evidence from the Research Literature
Guo, Karen
Australian Journal of Early Childhood, v31 n2 p7-13 Jun 2006
Children of Chinese culture are raised differently from children of other cultural groups. There is research evidence which contends that, regardless of where they live, the child-rearing practices within Chinese immigrant families are still influenced by Chinese traditional culture. Some studies also point out that Chinese immigrant parents modify the traditional way of raising children in accordance with the new way of life. This article explores the literature on the parental beliefs and practices of Chinese new immigrant parents and discusses the factors which help Chinese parents raise their children in the countries to which they migrate. In line with the literature, Chinese immigrant parents referred to in this study are those who have moved from China, Hong Kong and Taiwan to non-Asian countries within the past 10 years.
