You learned in your readings that parenting practices and techniques used to shape child development are influenced by many factors including culture, socioeconomic status, non-normative life events, and cohort effects. To understand cohort effects, consider that the experiences of a child growing up in the 1940s are different in many ways from a child growing up today.

so if you use education, you could state that generation A is your grandparents. what were their beliefs on their children's education? was graduating high school expected? in your parents' generation, did those parenting practices change to reflect the times? was an associates degree the new "lowest acceptable"? did your parents not put as much emphasis on education as their parents? what is your generation's belief?

It does! Thank you so much! I've been trying to work on this for a week and I just couldn't understand what they meant by it. I feel slightly stupid lol.
They want you to compare parenting practices such spanking/not spanking, church involvement, education choices (public/private/homeschool) in your way.
They want you to take these examples from your way; what do you do vs. your parents vs. your grandparents, etc.
Short example: my grandparents didn't use time-out, my parents didn't use time-out as a consequence/punishment, but dh and I do.
They want any write-ups in APA style (www.apastyle.org).
Hope that helps.

yes, it means you spank. the rod is the paddle or hand. if you spare the rod, meaning you use it sparingly or not at all, you spoil the child who doesn't know what discipline is.
So, what does that mean? I mean I always thought that meant no spanking or anything, does it actually mean you spank?
what parents do to raise their children. spanking, grounding, positive rewards, guidelines about mealtime and eating healthy foods, educational standards, religious indoctrination, requiring extracurricular activities, etc.
for example, the parenting style of generations past was more geared toward the "spare the rod, spoil the child" school of thought, and their practices reflect that with more discipline, and more strictness.
What are parenting practices?
