Abstract:Based on the first study, the second study developed an episodic coding system to investigate parental praise in these two cultures. Three process models of praise with distinctive communicative content were uncovered. Two models focus on adherence to parental expectations, which promote the development of an interdependent self (interdependence promoting praise). One focuses on child's self-initiated behaviors and supports the development of an independent self (independence-supportive praise). Consistent with past findings, independence-supportive praise is widely distributed in European American families. Although interdependence promoting praise tends to be overlooked in previous research, it is commonly distributed in Chinese immigrant families. The findings were discussed in terms of their implications for the development of culturally inclusive models of praise.
