Many studies have shown that the large differences in language development among young children in Northeast Groningen have an intergenerational background. Hereby parental beliefs about child rearing and education and expectations about academic performance of their children play an important role. Previous research showed that beliefs and expectations of parents are related to children's language performance. In this study beliefs and expectations by thirteen mothers in the aforementioned region are explicated by in-depth interviews. Analysis of these interviews yielded four profiles, based on two orthogonal dimensions: Traditional rural dwellers, New rural dwellers and city dwellers, Confidents and Dissociates. Analysis illustrated that psychological, cultural and socioeconomic factors determined whether mothers continue their own education or not.
