Parental and Other Caretaker Roles

While mothers and other adult women in a family circle spend more time than men do in the physical care of children, both sexes lavish attention and affection on their children and spend time in their training and their play. Probably the most attenuated relations between small children and their fathers are to be found in bourgeois families whose men work outside the home and affect greater distance and formality than is common in other classes. Generally, however, parents are partners in their children's discipline and the implantation of proper models of behavior (which themselves focus on adult roles of the two sexes). In adolescence, growing men and women seek most specific guidance from their parents and other kinsmen of the same sex. Spanish families do not normally express preference for children of one or the other sex and recognize the importance of both sexes in a domestic economy and the world at large.
