Parental Roles

Men and women share parental roles. Children are highly valued and both men and women take on the tasks of infant care and feeding, changing diapers, and child supervision (baby-sitting). Older brothers and sisters also share in these tasks, and it is quite usual for a teenage boy to change diapers or give a baby bottle to an infant sibling. However, older sisters are more often asked to care for younger brothers and sisters than older brothers. This is, in part, because older brothers are more likely to be engaged in hunting tasks, but it is also because childcare is considered a more female task than a male task. Between 1990 and 2000, there was an increase in the number of grandparents taking over the care and supervision of their grandchildren, although there are no data to demonstrate the degree of change.
