Even though the holidays are different in each country, students still get the time off. Just like there are many similarities between American and Mexican schools, there are also differences. One difference between American and Mexican schools is the way their education systems are organized. In the United States, students are required to attend elementary, middle, and high school. In Mexico, students are required to attend pre-kindergarten, primaria, and secundaria.
Unequal Childhoods is an ethnography outlining the study done by Annette Lareau which researched how socioeconomic classes impact parenting among both white and African American families. She used both participant observation and interviewing. 12 families participated in this study where she came to conclusions on whether they displayed parenting styles of concerted cultivation or natural growth based of their socioeconomic status. Concerted cultivation is a parenting style where the parent(s) are fully invested in creating as much opportunity for their child as possible, but results in a child with a sense of entitlement. An example of this would be a parent who places their children in a wide array of extracurricular activities and/or actively speaks to educators about the accommodations their child needs to effectively learn.
There are countless examples of Mexican-American masculinity in this novel, like when it mentions that Gabriel’s two eldest sons are fighting in WWII. Bless Me, Ultima also presented the process of acculturation for Mexican-Americans, especially in the education system. Vikki Ruiz specifically mentions this process, stating “Students also became familiar with U.S. history and holidays” (Ruiz, p.266). this is portrayed when Antonio talks about one learning English only after going to school. Acculturation was an intrinsic aspect of the creation of Mexican
When we are first brought into this world, we have no prior knowledge of our culture. Through our family we are introduced to our expected language, family dynamic, and gender roles. Our roots are a major component in diversifying humans from each other; although, our roots are able to diversify human from each other it is a powerful element in uniting the human race. In order to fully understand the cultural differences and similarities that is present in my daily life, I decided to interview Annabel Solorio--a Mexican-American. In my early childhood and adolescents, I was frequently exposed to the Mexican culture through my peers.
In order to deliver effective nursing care to different cultures, nurses should be culturally competent to a variety of different individuals. Barriers to care have resulted in lack of effectiveness in the quality of health care for these patients. These barriers include language, and different beliefs. Latinos make up nearly 16% of the US population (Zimmerman 2017). In addition, the Mexican culture will be the focus of assessment.
Have you ever noticed that homework is slowly taking over students’ lives? Homework should be eliminated from schools. However, doing homework, students receive higher test scores. But, what happens when homework has a negative effect on students? For instance, Clifton Parker wrote about how Denise Pope, a senior lecturer at the Stanford Graduate School of Education and some of her colleagues did a survey that associated with 4,317 students from 10 high schools in California.
The article I selected researched racial and ethnic disparities in ADHD diagnosis from kindergarten to eighth grade across the United States. This article best exemplifies the longitudinal Survey design through its exploration into what extent does racial and ethnic disparities play in the diagnosis of attention-deficit-hyperactivity-disorder also known as (ADHD) in children in early grades or middle school education. Diagnosis of any disability can have serious implications on student performance; this research emphasizes the importance of racial disparities in the diagnoses of learners in classrooms across the country. Morgan (2013) suggest minority students are dispproportional diagnosed and treated for ADHD. As such the effects of racial disparities on these learners can begin in kindergarden and have lasting effects on how people, learners, and educators arrive at understanding.
For instance, let’s take into consideration Pedro Flores. His children will fare in the United States based on their racial background, as well as their parents’ socioeconomic background. Flore’s children seemed to take part into the horizontal mobility, although that path disappeared when they migrated to California. Due to this example, we could definitely conclude that this theory does indeed work in real life. On the other hand, in this scenario, I would argue that a possible limitation could in fact include gender differences and how that impacts immigrant integration.
If the parents were extremely strict and never provided them with the required space, then the care givers would be open-minded, accepting, and somewhat liberal. If the parents never actually cared, then the care givers would be extremely nurturing and caring. They may pamper and spoil the child. There are two different combinations of parenting styles that parent use on their child. First one is complimentary parenting style where both the parents use same parenting style that is both mother and father follow same style .
In 2012 a peer-reviewed study done by researchers at the University of Nevada at Reno, discovered an astonishing fact, 90% of the seventh and eighth grade public school students didn’t like wearing uniforms (Claudene Wharton). If your student, kid, or relative says they dislike school uniforms, then they probably don't like wearing them. School uniforms in public schools undermine the promise of a free education by imposing an extra expense on families. In most inner city schools they require uniforms of some type of uniform, from a certain color or style. In those schools the students parents have to pay for these uniforms which could cost up to $249 for one child (School uniforms).
The Immigrant Second Generation in Metropolitan New York study looked into 428 variables, ranging from language preferences, citizenship, income, and family life, ultimately looking at differences of lifestyles growing up in a second generation immigrant family. This report will further investigate into how parent’s background in education and occupation might later on impact the wellbeing and development of the respondent. Variables like mother and father’s occupation, race, household income, well fare received previously and currently, respondent’s education, respondent’s occupation, and gross personal income. This sparked an interest for me because I am curious to see if parents’ education level impacted their children’s general wellbeing,
Family is an important value in the Mexican culture. When comparing to the American culture, it is said that Mexican’s place a higher value on family. Americans tend to give more of their attention to their profession, while Mexicans put family first (Difference Between American and Mexican Culture, 2013). Mexican children will get more parental guidance, whereas American children are taught to be independent at an early age (Difference Between American and Mexican Culture, 2013). Values adopted during early childhood may be important for understanding Mexican American youths’ adaptation because these values become the guiding force for future
Right to Know Your Biological Parents In a survey of American adolescents, 72 percent of adoptees wanted to figure out why they were put up for adoption, 65 percent wanted to meet their biological parents, and 94 percent wanted to know which birth parent they look like (“Birth Family Search”). Simple reasons like these are not the only reason some adoptees want to find their biological parents. Some adoptees have diseases or illnesses that could be treated and possibly cured if they knew their biological parents, knowing their biological parent is a basic civil right, and many just do not feel like they know themselves until they get to know where and who they came from. If an adoptee has a disease or illness that could be treated better
This style of communication can be vastly different from middle-class Caucasians who communicate with a future pretense (1998). Culturally Relevant Interventions When working with Latino client, it’s important to remember that their world view may differ from the world view of the counselor. In order for treatment to be effective and successful counselors need to choice culturally relevant methods and interventions that are going to match the clients world views (Carlson & Carlson, 2000). Alderian therapy is a method that may work well for Latino clients, as the approach forces on the person in a social context (2000). In Alderian therapy, counselors explores a persons social environment and cultural background and what it means to the client (2000).
The study found that parents’ involvement in intimate partner violence predicted higher symptoms of trauma in offspring, but there were differences in association for mothers and fathers, which demonstrated mothers may be more directly relevant to child trauma symptoms (Ehrensaft, Knous-Westfall, & Cohen, 2016). Also, the study found that intimate partner violence predicted lower positive parenting and higher negative parenting (Ehrensaft, Knous-Westfall, & Cohen, 2016). This means that parents practice less child centering, less time was spent with the child, and they were not as close. It also means parents practice more dissatisfaction with the child, discipline, and perceived ineffectiveness. Another finding of the study, was that positive parenting would moderate the association of intimate partner violence with child trauma (Ehrensaft, Knous-Westfall, & Cohen, 2016).
