In individualist culture the person or parents take care of their immediate families. The ties between the individuals are not strong. Everyone there is expected to care for himself and his or her immediate family. In individualistic culture the ideal parenting considers that children should be independent, highly verbal, emotionally restrained and self reliant (Carteret, n.d.). These skills are fostered by the parent in the children to obtain success in the society. The upbringing of children shows that they sleep solitary to promote autonomy for children. Parents teach their children for spoon feeding.
