How are Children Cared for and Disciplined in Various Countries?

Emanuela works in a school with young kids from different countries.  She asked if anyone could help with some questions about how children are cared for and disciplined in various cultures.  Here’s her letter:

I have a special request to you and I think you can help me because you know people of many cultures.  In my school, where boys and girls are 75% foreign, We need to understand how different cultures (Chinese, Nigerian, Moroccan, Ghanaian) think about the "child".  In particular:

-How to take care of him.
-Who takes care of the child?
-What do you expect from young children and what do you allow them to do.
-What are the gestures of affection (cuddling, etc…) that you make to children?
-What are the rewards and the punishments that they use?

Thanks for your help.

Bye,

Emanuela

If anyone can help Emanuela with any of these questions, please comment below.

Thanks in advance.

    Hello ! I suggest you to teach your child in the way you want . He will learn many things from his friends . You must teach him English language which is common and everywhere acceptable . If you want to punish your child then stop letting him to meet his friends , stop him for watching TV etc. These are the right ways for teaching your child . Thanks
