Abstract:This phenomenological study examined Nigerian Yoruba immigrant parents' perception regarding how acculturation has affected their child rearing practices and beliefs. The purpose of this study was to examine the lived experiences of Yoruba immigrants in reference to their child rearing practices after they have lived in the United States. Through in-depth interviews, observations, and dialogues, a comprehensive understanding of the child rearing experiences of immigrant Yoruba parents in northeastern United States was acquired. Eight immigrant Yoruba parents were interviewed on breast feeding, infant care, weaning, nutrition, recreation, discipline, and education of their children. In addition, information was obtained from Yoruba parents on the perceived differences between Yoruba and Western culture child rearing issues and philosophy. Data was transcribed and examined for recurrent themes. The qualitative software program MAXQDA was used in the textual analysis. This study revealed how immigration impacts the parenting styles of Yoruba parents and showed how Yoruba parents strive to maintain aspects of their culture while they live in Western society. Yoruba immigrants maintained many aspects of their culture and this influenced how children were named, disciplined, fed, carried, circumcised and involved in household chores. Acculturation of Yoruba parents impacted some of their child rearing practices including toilet training, recreation and breastfeeding. These findings will assist human service professionals to provide culturally sensitive services to this population, provide direction for future research and practical implications for promoting the positive aspects of Yoruba child rearing practices.
