M. (2011). It should also be noted that many, Head Start preschool teachers are math anxious and their level of math anxiety prevents them from teaching mathematics to preschool aged children, including reasoning and cognitive thinking skills, as much as they should. It is critical for children to develop these reasoning and cognitive skills in order to be successful in future learning. In it’s current state of U. S. childcare centers, “the quality of emotional support in preschool classrooms appears relatively strong when compared to the quality of instructional support” Hirokazu, Y. (2016). Although emotional support is a very important factor in child development it certainly isn’t a basis to build a case for sending children to preschool away from their families and emotional centers.

Racial Socialization Racial socialization is the process of passing down of racial and worldview messages to younger generations (Araujo Dawson & Quiros, 2014). Racial socialization can be expressed through cultural language, food, history, artwork which teaches ethnic pride. Often times parents pass the same racial messages and beliefs down to their children which they received as a child (Hughes & Chen, 1997). Several factors play a role in the process of racial socialization such as age, gender, parents’ education/ socio-economic status and family discrimination experiences (Hughes et al., 2006).
Furthermore, Kim (2005) recognizes that the Korean patriarchal family system and traditional gender roles are often expressed in Korean American homes. Literature also identifies language as a significant cultural influence in Korean American families. Kim
When mentioning the Adult Attachment Theory, it provides the extensive work of Bowlby, 1997 for a clear understanding on the development of bonds with others. Likewise, the author delivers important insides into the early experience of mother/child relationships, but also in reference to adult/adult similarities. Waters et al, 2002 states how Bowlby replaced Freud´s Drive Reduction Model of psychodynamics structures about motivation, with the one that emphasizes roles relationships introducing a concept of mental model into his work, actually, Bowlby rejecting categorically his Drive Reduction Theory. Waters et al, 2002 also mention the statement that initially Bowlby documented and criticized some vulnerabilities in the originals Freud´s
Parental acceptance-rejection theory (Ronald Rohner, University of Connecticut, 2016) is an evidence-based theory of socialization and development over a lifespan that attempts to predict and explain major causes, consequences, and other correlates of interpersonal—especially parental—acceptance and rejection within the United States and worldwide (Rohner, 1986, 2004; Rohner and Rohner, 1980). It attempts to answer five questions divided into three sub theories i.e. personality sub theory, coping sub theory, and sociocultural systems sub theory. Personality sub theory asks two general questions. 1) Is it true, as the sub theory postulates, that children everywhere—in different sociocultural systems, racial or ethnic groups, genders, and the
Family Therapy Theory Bekka Burlingame Michigan State University Family Therapy Theory Theoretical Review of Bowen Therapy Bowen Family Therapy began as research into relationships between mothers and their schizophrenic children using psychoanalytic theory in the late 1940’s (Denay, 2017). Murray Brown based his therapy on both individuality and togetherness, with a goal of differentiation of self (Nichols, 2013). Bowen Therapy views the entire family as one emotional unit, where each member’s emotional reactivity is dependent on the other family members (The Bowen Center, 2017). There are 8 concepts that make up Bowen Family Therapy and they will be discussed in the following sections.
Psychology today can tell us that the environment in which we grow up in can have an important impact on a youth’s identity and future. Growing up in not only a state of poverty, but with additional social and economic disadvantages can have an overwhelming negative influence on student’s performance. In major cities across the United States schools that poverty stricken African American students attend are segregated, not in a legal sense, but because of location. Neighborhoods with soaring levels of poverty are limited to the oftentimes overpopulated, underfunded, and understaffed local schools. Creating a culture of multigenerational families isolated in their own poverty.

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,
Often Asian Americans are called the “model minority” because they seem to be successful economically, socially, and educationally without significant confrontations with the white majority (Johnson & Rhodes, 2015). Kim-Ly’s parents immigrated to the United States 27 years ago from Vietnam. Over time the family has progressed socioeconomically and now owns a small grocery store but still experiences stress over paying bills. Many cultural values of Vietnamese are derived from Confucianism, promoting filial piety and other strong family-centered values (Johnson & Rhodes, 2015). It is a central tenant in Asian culture to bring honor to the family and not shame it.
