Parental and Other Caretaker Roles

Mothers are the primary caretakers for children, often assisted by both maternal and paternal grandmothers. Many Czech children now grow up in blended families, in which their biological mother provides most of the actual daily caring and disciplining, and a stepfather or mother's boyfriend is present but does not play a major role in the daily lives of the children. For Czechs who grow up in the more traditional nuclear family, the father is still not present in the home much of the time, being away at work during the day and sometimes socializing with his male friends or business associates after work. Discipline of the children may come from either father or mother, depending in part on the temperaments of the parents, though mothers seem less willing to punish sons. Children do not typically help much around the home, as the mother is expected to do most of the housework.
