Cultural norms are the collective expectations of what constitutes "proper" or "improper" behavior in a given situation.

variables that seem to be most important to children academic performance. Their expectations have consistently been a strong perdictor of children achievement at all age levels.

respected by their children therefore they are more
likely to communicate high educational expectations. Parents with low levels of self esteem are much more self involved and much less absorbed with the needs of their children. In other words the way parents feel about themselves determines to some extent, the degree to which their children are inclined to follow, adopt, or internalized their parents expectations.
