Abstract: This study brings into focus the impact of the Developmental Niche by examining parental beliefs about gender in an immigrant context. More specifically, it highlights the renegotiation of gender identities at the intersection of multiple cultures. Incorporating research from a larger, ongoing study examining South Asian Families And Renegotiations of Identities (SAFARI), the present study involves a sample of Latino immigrants, who are considered by many researchers to be culturally similar to many Asian cultures in their interdependent construals and collectivist cultural frameworks. Ten Latino families completed multiple surveys over the course of one week, and these data were compared to data previously-collected data from the Asian-Indians and Euro-Americans collected by SAFARI project investigators. No significant relationships among the subsystems of the Developmental Niche were found. However, interesting findings regarding the construction of physical and social settings for children across ethnicities raise questions for future research designed to assess the roles of education and methods of acculturation in the lives of young Latino immigrants.
