This section has me thinking about my different families and all the similarities and differences we have. I do try to consider families backgrounds as we discuss the best methods of doing things for their child. I found the explaanation of independence vs interdependence and individual vs collectivist vert interesting. I found my self thinking of which one was I and which one my parents were. For myself I think that I am somewhere in the middle, depending on the situation. One of my biggest challenges seems to come from families about potty training. Families are always ready for their child to be potty trained sooner rather than later and I understand why. It takes long conversations about their expectation and “best practices” but usually we can find a middle ground that works for everyone.
