Do you think there are still cultural differences when it comes to raising babies nowadays in the US?

  • Yes. Its not always even about race or color its about what people see their own families do. My family and my inlaws are opposite with parenting in every way and we are pretty much the same ethnicity's

  • Of course and that will never change. You're constantly getting a influx of new citizins from around the world in the US. Which causes cities and neighborhoods to flutuate in diversity daily. With that you're getting different cultures sharing a difference in belief, raising, diciplin, and so on. Even within families that have been in the US for generations you're still having passed down beliefs within the culture they were born into. You're never going to have a generalized belief in raising a child, because again this country is always learning from their history and from new cultures arriving daily.

  • Of course. Watch the movie, "Babies"... and even though those are actually kids being raised in different countries.. you can still see that culture plays a part.
