During the interview, Kazdin really goes into child psychology, and how typical and popular parenting methods may not prove effective on children anymore. Both Khazan and Kazdin attempt to tap into the emotions of existing parents, or parents-to-be, by giving scenarios and examples of child behavior and personal experiences. One may definitely notice throughout the text that author, Khazan, attempts to manipulate with the way that she writes. Khazan dives deep into one side of the psychology of children and the effects that discipline may have on children.
Western society has created an ethnocentric approach to the development and socialization of infants in various cultures. Additionally, American society often creates specific techniques for the development of one’s child. These techniques become a norm in American Culture.

Permissive parenting that lack control and discipline over their children are negatively related with the academic achievement by the permissive parents (Dornbusch, Fraleigh, Lerderman, Ritter, & Robert , 1987). Parents must involve and act positively related to academic achievement of their children (Xitao & Michael, 2001).

Abstract Amy Chua introduced the concept of “Tiger mom” in her book Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother (Chua, 2011). She described the hyper-parenting style she used with her daughters, analyzing it and comparing it to the Western parenting styles.

In “Radical “Unschooling” Moms are Changing the stay-at Home Landscape” Schenwar writes about homeschooling. Like their hippie and creationist colleagues, these new homeschoolers decry the morality of public education, which they see as steeped in sexism, racism, classism heterosexism, and elitism. They prefer a type of homeschooling called “unschooling,” in which parents act not only as teachers, but guide their children toward their own explorations. Now the feminist becomes a stay-at-home mother, who needs financial support, usually from the father.
Introduction Many children’s animated films are set in mystical kingdoms or foreign places. It is therefore not surprising that a multitude of accents is used in such films. It is, however, surprising how most foreign-accented characters are portrayed. Previous research has shown that the use of accents in children’s animated films teaches them how to discriminate (Lippi-Green 1997). Lippi-Green (1997) discovered that the racial stereotypes in these features serve a crucial role in teaching children about dichotomies, such as good and evil.
Phuong Cao Nguyen 130096 Introduction to Cultural Psychology November 15th MOVIE ‘BABIES’ REFLECTION The way a child is raised can bring up ethical questions.
