Abstract

The attitudes of 236 early childhood staff toward the childrearing practices of their parent clientele were assessed. A 30-item questionnaire with three response formats was used. The data confirmed the hypothesis that there is a significant difference between staff ratings of good parenting practices and ratings of their own center parents' childrearing practices. However, staff members indicated that they thought their center parents were doing a better job at childrearing than most American parents today.
