Early learning practices in immigrant families
from Education Week
According to a new study, immigrant Mexican mothers report stable home environments but are less likely to read to their young children than American-born white mothers; however, immigrant Chinese mothers are opposite. These insights into how families function in immigrant households in the United States come from a new study that examines how migration history, cultural practices and social class impact social-emotional development and early learning practices in homes with young children. The findings challenge some of the conventional thinking on the disadvantages for children born into immigrant families.
