Cultural Implications in Parenting Practices and Values: Further Examination of Asian Parenting Style
Previous research has examined the critically important role that parents have as well as how the cultural and ethnic background of the parent has implications for the attitudes, behaviors, and beliefs that influence parenting style. Literature indicates that the parenting style of Asian and Asian-American parents is associated with the western ideology of authoritarian style, which is described to be harsh, demanding, and with low levels of emotional attunement. However, this notion has been challenged by researchers that argue that the customs and behaviors that may be valued in one culture may be differently regarded in another. Therefore, this study will further examine how culture and ethnicity impact parenting practices, utilizing Mowder’s (2005) Parent Development Theory as the theoretical basis to appreciate the parent role.
