Parental and Other Caretaker Roles

A variety of individuals play a parenting role in the life of a child. Mothers are the primary nurturers. They spend the most time with the children, they socialize children to know what is right and wrong, they provide children with tender hugs and encouragement, and they care for children when they are ill. Fathers play a more distant parenting role. They pay less attention to the child on a daily basis, but their advice, admonitions, and praise carry more authority from the child's perspective. Grandparents also play an important role in the socialization of a child. Grandparents are generally expected to indulge and spoil their grandchildren. In some cases, they take on a more serious role. According to Kazakh custom, the first child is given to the father's parents to be raised. This custom is followed by some families. In these cases, the grandparents tend to be more lenient than the parents toward the child. Aunts, uncles, and older siblings also play a parenting role by scolding younger relatives when they do something wrong and giving them orders to help with household chores.
