Parenting Across Cultures
Academic Credit

This course considers parenting practices across diverse cultures around the world and within the United States. The interdisciplinary approach examines how evolution and geographic, political, religious, cultural , and economic characteristics of the community affect specific childrearing approaches and practices. The course also addresses whether there are universal patterns of parenting, or near-universal patterns, and examines which practices are indisputably variable. In trying to understand parenting practices, we will also examine parenting practices in our own community through a service learning project. The project will involve working with one of a number of agencies. These agencies include United for Kids, a family resource program which empowers parents in the NW quadrant of SLC, International Rescue Committee, And Early Literacy First. (Service Learning) IR
