Cultural Influences on Children's Play

An Interview with Dr. Patricia Ramsey

View a transcript of this video.

Dr. Patricia Ramsey explains how children's play preferences reflect the values of the cultures they are raised in. This video was created as part of the Guiding Young Children's Behavior series, an interactive training curriculum that provides current and future early childhood professionals with tools and strategies for guiding preschool children's behavior in positive ways. The curriculum was originally made possible through the generous support of the U.S. Department of Defense for Project Navigate, a project to support the professional development of early childhood professionals in U.S. Navy child care centers.
