Children’s literacy abilities are fostered by many factors including the home literacy environment. A key component of the home literacy environment is parental beliefs about literacy development. Parents’ beliefs shape the goals that they have for their children, guide parents’ practices, and mediate children’s outcomes (Neuman, Hagedorn, Celano, & Daly, 1995; Rubin, Mills & Rose-Krasnor, 1989). Differences in parental beliefs exist between cultures, because the definition of a competent individual varies from culture to culture. Assisting children in becoming successful individuals in their own culture is a primary goal for parents, which in turn influences how parents approach child rearing (Goodnow & Collins, 1991; Rogoff, 1981).
