This group explores a wide range of cultures in contemporary England and the unique characteristics of parenting in each one of them. We examine how parents across these cultures perceive and practice their parenting. A better understanding of how culture shapes parenting will help practitioners and professionals interact with parents.
This is a mixed method research combining semi-structured interviews and questionnaires exploring parents' opinions, perceptions and parenting practices. Each student-researcher is studying parents from one specific cultural group in contemporary England.
This project will shed light on the impact of culture on parenting across a wide range of cultural groups in contemporary England.
Social workers, teachers, psychologists and other professionals working with these parents will benefit from the knowledge gained which will allow them better understand the parents and families they are working with.
The project is conducted in collaboration with MSc Social Work students: Rozina Mithani, Uzma Kausar, Mehwish Jahan, Shumaila Asghar, Nana Yaa Ayitia, Felicia Benjamin, Ruth Apula Mokakwa, Sarah Akeke, Mariah Ahmed, and Areeba Naseem.
