The research involved the families going to school activities in the afternoon, maybe having a healthcare appointment, hanging with friends, sports when school ends, or parents running errands.
A key point that the author studied was that different cultures had a “directive approach” on how they guide there children. While visiting families of different cultures, she noted that middle class parents are more involved with are very much involved in helping their children reach their goals. With encouragement, they make their children focus on academic studies. These parents always take time to listen to their kids problems and concerns when they have a problem at school, friends or life.

Lower income families need more guidance and resources to help their children beat a poverty income and low academic performance.
In conclusion, this study showed that class matters more than race but provided limited discussion on the impact of race in children’s lives and their future and lacks the information on the role of extended families in middle class young adults. Lareau recognises that there is a gap in studying the effects of class in children’s lives, positive parenting strategies and inequality due to class and therefore calls for in-depth research in this field.
On the contrary, parents belonging to working class and poor families considered their children now ‘grown ups’ and the young adults agreed to this view. Extended families play an important role in shaping children belonging to working class and poor family children.
In conclusion, middle class children accomplished more educational achievements than the working class and poor family kids. Parenting styles shape children’s lives as they grow into young adults to prepare them for independent successful lives. Overall, an excellent and enlightening study.
