Professor of Education
The City College of New York
Gupta will discuss the findings of a study to
understand Indian parents’ perceptions on parent-child relationships including
those with extended family; parents’ attitudes with regard to the education of
their young children; and parents’ preferences for the skills and behaviors
which in their view were important for their children to learn. The discussion
will trace traditional and modern influences that shape current beliefs and
practices of Indian parents.
Sponsored by the South Asia Center, Moynihan Institute of Global Affairs, Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs, and the Department of Human
Development and Family Science.
