  • Childrearing Experiences in Cross-national Families

    • Authors: Yajuan Xiang, Tori Colson
      Pages: 4 - 18
      Abstract: Cross-national family is an understudied group. Research on this group tended to focus on the challenges confronted by the couples in marital conflicts impacted by the unique stressors within the family including: place of residence, disparate language and cultural differences, societal attitudes and extended families and friends. A relatively small proportion of the literature has focused on multicultural parenting experiences which has been recognized as a turning point for increasing conflicts within couples. Thus, this qualitative study examined 82 participants through surveys and selected interviews to understand how the unique stressors might impact their childrearing experiences. Results stated parents’ perceptions on their cross-national marriages and multicultural parenting experiences. Moreover, those unique stressors impacted parenting beliefs, practices, parent-child relationships, and received social support by bringing challenges and opportunities. Place of residence, language issues, extended families and friends were found to be cultural medium influencing multicultural parenting experiences among cross-national families.

  • Teaching Sustainable Practices as Part of a Holistic Education in the
           Saudi Context

    • Authors: Ahlam Abdullah Alghamdi, James M Ernest, Fatimah Hafiz
      Pages: 42 - 52
      Abstract: The need for humans to take responsible actions to sustain a sufficiently resourced world for younger generations has become an important issue. Caring about our children’s future lives can be best supported through providing high quality education that encourages children to positively engage in creating a sustainable future. Transformative teaching advocates for a positive change in the world and fits well with the principals of sustainable development. Among many approaches to educating young children, using developmentally appropriate practices (DAP) involves children in reflective decision-making and and can encourage them to take actions for a sustainable society. As DAP relies on three core considerations of age, individual, and cultural appropriateness (Copple & Bredekamp, 2009), the suitability of a set of practices is relative to different situations, cultures, and belief systems. As part of bridging cultural differences among early childhood education and the global community, this paper will shed a light on an example of focusing on sand and water as part of a Saudi Arabian experience of educating young children.
