Culture, Parenting, and Child Development

This issue of Zero to Three explores the intersection of culture, parenting, and child development. There has been a growing recognition of the importance of culture as the U.S. has become an increasingly diverse society, and due to the growing recognition that research on child development has largely reflected Western ideals and requires a broader approach to account for cultural variation. The articles in this issue examine such topics as the effect of cultural variations in infant–toddler group care, how to effectively educate ethnically diverse children, the impact of trauma on parenting and child development in the context of immigration, and the history of racism on African American culture and parenting.
