In this study, we are investigating the factors that influence Chinese American mothers’ cultural value, maternal behaviors, and their children’s executive function skills. The study will explicate variations within Chinese American families with the goal of moving beyond stereo-typed and/or deficit-oriented perspectives of parenting practices and hopefully inform the development of more culturally sensitive interventions targeting parental socialization and EF development in Chinese Americans.
