U.S.-Korean cultural differences in the dynamics of parent-child interactions and sleep

"U.S.-Korean cultural differences in the dynamics of parent-child interactions and sleep"

Drs. Chung and Teti presented 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 were 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.
