Summary In a period of educational reform that gives much attention to children?s family experiences, gaining an understanding of diverse cultural views of parenting is important. This is especially so for Australia, a multicultural society where the values of diversity, culture, family, and community are all shared in early childhood education. This article reports a study in Australia that explored the viewpoints of seven culturally diverse women on raising young children. By engaging with multiple cultural groups, the study seeks to expand scholarship on culturally diverse education which tends to draw on samples of single ethnic communities. The purpose is to locate the concept of parenting within a broader concept of culture and more importantly within the paradigm of diversity. Findings suggest that ideas of “culture”, “minority” and “difference” played a complex and dynamic role in the parents? experiences, and their childrearing practice was an articulation of cultural relationship that characterised the life of children and parents in resettlement contexts.
