Parental and Other Caretaker Roles

Both men and women participate in child-rearing. Parents are very affectionate with their children, with much holding and cuddling. Both parents discipline their children, though fathers generally have the final say in disciplinary matters. As children grow older, mothers spend more time with their daughters and nieces, and fathers with their sons and nephews. All adults participate in the upbringing of all the children living in their compound and of all their nieces, nephews, and grandchildren. Cowives, especially, are like second mothers to each others' children. Elder siblings are very protective of their younger brothers and sisters, and often play a parental role.
