Abstract

The purpose of this study is to determine the extent to which the child rearing behavior of Mexican agricultural laborers in Fresno County reflects acculturation from Mexican rural village patterns to those of native born, working class Americans. The paper has been prepared to summarize and compare selected research on child rearing behavior patterns among: (1) Mexican rural village inhabitants, (2) Fresno County seasonal agricultural laborers, and (3) American working class parents.
