Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
Hispanic/Latino Americans (not members of elite group)
tend to avoid competition or activities that will set them apart
from their own group.
"Machismo" plays a significant role in the Puerto
Rican and other Hispanic/Latino groups
Many children are taught early that European Americans
are not trustworthy.
In general, group-oriented Mexican American children
are likely to change their own behavior to adapt to an interpersonal
challenge rather than try to change situations. They are less
assertive in expressing themselves to peers and adults and rely on
authority figures to resolve interpersonal problems.
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
