Do parents matter? : why Japanese babies sleep well, Mexican siblings don't fight, and American families should just relax by Robert A LeVine( Book )

8 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 603 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In some parts of northwestern Nigeria, mothers studiously avoid making eye contact with their babies. Some Chinese parents go out of their way to seek confrontation with their toddlers. Japanese parents almost universally co-sleep with their infants, sometimes continuing to share a bed with them until age ten. Yet all these parents are as likely as Americans to have loving relationships with happy children. If these practices seem bizarre, or their results seem counterintuitive, it's not necessarily because other cultures have discovered the keys to understanding children. It might be more appropriate to say there are no keys-but Americans are driving themselves crazy trying to find them. When we're immersed in news articles and scientific findings proclaiming the importance of some factor or other, we often miss the bigger picture: that parents can only affect their children so much. Robert and Sarah LeVine, married anthropologists at Harvard University, have spent their lives researching parenting across the globe-starting with a trip to visit the Hausa people of Nigeria as newlyweds in 1969. Their decades of original research provide a new window onto the challenges of parenting and the ways that it is shaped by economic, cultural, and familial traditions. Their ability to put our modern struggles into global and historical perspective should calm many a nervous mother or father's nerves. It has become a truism to say that American parents are exhausted and overstressed about the health, intelligence, happiness, and success of their children. But as Robert and Sarah LeVine show, this is all part of our culture. And a look around the world may be just the thing to remind us that there are plenty of other choices to make"--
Child care and culture : lessons from Africa by Robert A LeVine( Book )

25 editions published between 1994 and 2005 in English and held by 574 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Child Care and Culture examines parenthood, infancy, and early childhood in an African community, raising provocative questions about "normal" child care. Comparing the Gusii people of Kenya with the American white middle class, the authors show how divergent cultural priorities create differing conditions for early childhood development. Gusii mothers, who bear ten children on average, focus on goals of survival during infancy and compliance during early childhood, following a cultural model of maternal behavior for achieving these goals. Their practices are successful in a local context but diverge sharply from those considered normal or optimal in North America and Europe, especially in terms of cognitive stimulation, social engagement, emotional arousal, verbal responsiveness, and emotional support for exploration and conversation. Combining the perspectives of social anthropology, pediatrics, and developmental psychology, the authors demonstrate how child care customs can be responsive to varied socioeconomic, demographic, and cultural conditions without inflicting harm on children

Human conditions : the cultural basis of educational development by Robert A LeVine( Book )

15 editions published between 1986 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on anthropological and historical inquiry, this book proposes and illustrates a new approach to the comparative analysis of educational policy. It investigates cultural conceptions of human potential as they inform social and economic goals of education by reviewing the transitions of Western countries, Japan, and the People's Republic of China. An analysis of the problems and emerging patterns of Third World societies reveals how and why the meanings of life for the majority of their populations are still influenced by agrarian cultural models, even after the introduction of new educational and occupational careers. It is proposed that culture-specific meanings of education are determined by each country's particular transition from its agrarian past to its current socio-economic conditions. (Jd)
Anthropology and child development : a cross-cultural reader( Book )

9 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 387 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This unprecedented collection of articles is an introduction to the study of cultural variations in childhood across the world and to the theoretical frameworks for investigating and interpreting them. With a focus on the child's participation in, and acquisition of, cultural practices, the readings include ethnographic studies of childhood among hunting-and-gathering, agricultural, and urban-industrial people in the Pacific, Africa, Latin America, East Asia, Europe, and North America. Introductions to each section provide the student with a historical and conceptual framework for understanding the significance of the particular studies and their implications for developmental theory and educational practice. From the earliest analysis of cultural difference to the most recent articles examining ecological, semiotic, and socio-linguistic difference, "The Anthropology of Childhood" illuminates the process through which people become the bearers of their historically and culturally specific identities
