The impact of having inherit traits that are part of the subconscious process of educating children can not be overlooked. Difference in values within cultures impacts how parents raise children. When two cultures meet they often collide, and clash. Children often meet the Western culture with much more acceptance than their parents. The survey shows that when the children will not learn the language of parents. Parents have lost aspects of parenthood as a result. It also shows that girls and boys have different sets of rules. Girls carry the responsibilities for traditions and family life, being more controlled than boys. Two different approaches or models have been discussed in the process of the survey. The Western model of concentrating on an Individualist approach has been contrasted to the Muslim model of focusing on the group-oriented way of raising their children. Interviewing parents of Muslim background has provided substance from which many insights can be drawn, and acted as a support to the research already made for this composition. (Less)
