Part 1: I was able to survey a wide range of family types and ethnicities. One of the families surveyed is an unmarried couple comprised of a Pacific Islander and a Mexican American. Another Family is a single Mexican American mother whom lives with her mother who is widowed. The third and fourth families are married and Caucasian. One of the more interesting things that I found was the Pacific Islander mother has a 4 year old and feels that she will wean at the age of five. This mother also had the oldest ages for dressing themselves and picking out their own clothes. This shows a very strong attitude toward interdependence. I would expect to have to work harder on self-help skills with this child. I will also expect to have differences with the parents on the curriculum. My background is a strong independent background. Collaborating with the child in daily activities is strongly stressed. I would see this becoming an issue with this family since they want the child to depend on them for as long as possible. I will have to prepare for this and find the common ground on which we can work and grow from. Part 2: My goal as an educator is to foster development for children raised in a variety of ways. In this case, I need to be able to teach to children that are brought up with parenting styles. To be specific I need to look at independence and interdependence. Children that are raised in each of these environments are going to be comfortable learning in different ways. Nether method of raising a child is better or worse than the other. It is my job to educate these children and give them the best shot at getting along in the world in front of them. I feel that the children are going to need skill sets from both of these methods to assimilate into society well. There are times that being a strong independent person are going to help you and there are times that being interdependent are going to be an advantage.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
