do you think there are just some fundamental difference between the way different races raise their children and think about parenting?

  • There are significant differences in the way people of different cultures raise their children. I have been living in Tucson for almost 3 years. Mexicans and people from the Mexican culture are more likely to live with extended family or have extended family that play a significant role in raising their children. When Mexican families go out shopping the mothers are not strict with their children and when you first arrive in Tucson the kids seem a little wild. Now that I have gotten used to it, I like it. The mothers somewhat count on other mothers and older kids to watch out for the younger kids. No one gets hurt and messes don't get made. The families aren't loud and there aren't loud mouth "bad" moms yelling, swearing, threatening, and hitting their kids.

  • not just race. economic status and how the parents were raised play bigger roles. also single parents raise their children differently than married ones.

  • Very much so and especially outside this country; where environment and culture is different from this country. As well as language; traditions; and foods is different.

  • I think so. I also think SES, single, married, etc play a role.
