Discussion: Metatheories of Childrearing
Consider the following two quotes by infant/toddler expert Ronald Lally:
“Every single adult, whether conscious of it or not, has an overarching theory that drives his or her childrearing practices” (Lally, 2006, p. 7).
“Often differences of opinion about strategies for childrearing occur between a child development professional and a client, parent, or trainee. Many times this difference is caused not because of a lack of information but rather because information that does not fit one’s metatheory is rejected. To be effective in our work, we not only have to share the latest research theory about who children are and how they grow, but we also need to acknowledge and relate to the strong and sometimes unacknowledged theories that are held by those engaged in childrearing—including ourselves” (Lally, 2006, p. 8).
Based on what you have learned about how personal metatheories of childrearing impact how each of us relates to and cares for children, complete the following:
