Parental and Other Caretaker Roles

Because most Uzbeks live in extended family situations for at least part of the life cycle, children may have several caretakers. Uzbekistan's laws concerning maternity leave assume that mothers are the primary caretakers of their children, up to age 3. Grandmothers play a large role in raising children, especially when mothers work outside the home. Many mothers choose to stay home and be their children's primary caretaker but society does not disapprove of mothers who work, and good daycare is seen as beneficial to children's learning and socialization. Uzbek society regards as good a father who spends considerable time with his children, carries them in his arms, and provides for them. Aunts and uncles who live in the family home play large roles in caring for small children, as do older siblings. Adult children generally become caretakers for elderly parents and other elderly relatives who have no living children.
