Dr. Seockhoon Chung and Dr. Doug Teti Discussion

Please join us for a discussion on possible U.S.-Korean cultural differences in the dynamics of parent-child interactions and sleep, and how the physical differences in bedrooms and beds might (or might not) change the nature of parent-child sleep interactions.

Please join us for a discussion on possible U.S.-Korean cultural differences in the dynamics of parent-child interactions and sleep, and how the physical differences in bedrooms and beds might (or might not) change the nature of parent-child sleep interactions.  Cultural dynamics associated with parent-child sleep interactions will be discussed, as well as research examining the cultural consonance vs. cultural dissonance in sleep arrangements, and its link with criticism mothers receive from others about non-traditional sleep arrangements and maternal worries about infant sleep.
