In this discussion, you will explore how culture affects children’s play, development and personality. Cultural factors related to play allow children to develop physically, mentally, and emotionally within a cultural context. Play teaches children many valuable lessons including how to:
be culturally sensitive,
work in multicultural groups,
increase awareness of their culture.
For this discussion, please read “The changing face of the United States: The influence of culture on early child development” (Mashinot, 2008) in addition to your weekly guidance.
