Cultural Differences in Caring for Infants

Cultural Differences in Caring for Infants

The major assumptions of Piaget's theory of cognitive development are that infants are active agents in constructing knowledge and that the interaction of experience and biology leads to growth and development. The cultural-contextual view agrees with these assumptions but adds two more: (1) other people make active contributions to infant development, and (2) cultural practices, which reflect the dominant beliefs and values of a culture, shape infant interaction with others and, ultimately, shape cognitive development. Variations in sleeping and feeding behaviors reflect the role of infants in a culture. Beliefs about babies in different cultures determine how they are treated, who interacts with them, and, consequently, how babies experience their world.

Choose a culture other than your own, and fill in the chart with details contrasting how the 2 cultures care for infants. Use at least 2 resources, cited using APA style, to support your assertions about the different culture's ways of caring for infants. Before completing this assignment, be sure that you understand the definition of culture. Here is a resource that may be helpful. What is culture? Your references need to relate to concepts learned about culture and child care and must be scholarly/academic in nature. Use of .com websites is not appropriate. Please see the Grading Rubric below.

I did my best to recreate the table it talks about. I don't understand if this is suppose to be a separate thing or if the table is apart of the paper. A culture that I would use is veteran culture. Either for my own or the different one again I really don't understand what its asking for there. If you could though please fill make a separate page for this and you can just bullet it out. I will be driving through the day and be be able to check back in until right before this is actually due. If there is anything wrong with this request please get it through the system and I'll square up with y'all afterwards.
