CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

BACKGROUND TO THE STUDY

        The overriding joy of any couple throughout the world is to bear children. The arrival of such as child is a momentous occasion which is celebrated in different ways. While it is important for the couples to bear children, most of them often neglect the vital aspect of caring for their offspring. Every child needs love, care, protection and security from their parents and the society in which he lives. This foregoing assertion is supported by (Lee, 2002) she stated that young children are actively dependent on adults for their care and survival and that each child is expected to be looked after by his parents in the society in which they live.

        Moreover, the issue of giving adequate care to children is quite vital because the quality of a nation depends to a large extent on the children. The way children are cared for in Esan South East varies depending on the financial strength of their parents.

Parenting is an activity rooted not only in one’s own childhood experiences, but in the culture one grew up and lives in. culture can have a powerful effect on parenting styles and practices, according to the centers for disease control and prevention. For example, a culture in which the father is expected to be a stern disciplinary and the breadwinner will have a different effect on child-rearing practices than one in which both parents work full time and parenting responsibilities are shared.

BEHAVIOURAL EXPECTATIONS

        Parents have behavioural expectations about their chdirlen that are similar in many cultures, according to the centre for disease control (2013) among the areas of consensus; children should be respectful and polite, not interrupt, be honest, share and do well in school. However, some cultures have additional expectation. Parents expect children to exert self-control, while fathers often feel their children should have a religious or spiritual foundation. In Esan South East Local Government Area of Edo State, fathers often expect their children to be assertive, independent and willingly take responsibility for their mistakes.

AFFECTION

        One are in which cultures often differ is in the ways parents display affection towards their children. West African communities often stop such practices as kissing or fondling a child once she becomes a to0ddler. However, some cultures consider physical attention such as bathing, skin care or braiding a child’s hair to be appropriate physical ways to express affection. Monetary rewards and praise are also signs of affection in Esan South East Local Government Area of Edo State.

EDUCATION

        Many parents see educational attainment as desirable for their children. In some families however, physical punishment might be used to induce children to study hard and get good grades, according to the national foster and kinship care conference, 2012. Furthermore, parental involvement in activities such as checking a child’s homework also varies by culture. The center for public education reports that 82% of white parents check homework, while 91% of Hispanic and 94% of Black parents check homework. In Esan South East Local Government Area of Edo State, only few parents are interested in their children academic performance. They poorly check their children home work and also not fully involved in the academic welfare of their children.

PHYSICAL PUNISHMENT

        Physical punishment is another area in which parents of different culture act differently. Most parents view spanking as a last resort strategy, but felt it was acceptable, according to the center for Disease Control (2013). Black parents were more willing to spank a child in a public place because they felt the need to immediately respond to misbehavior. White and American Indian parents were less comfortable to use a belt or strap for spanking for serious misbehavior, while Asia-American and American Indian parents felt that they should only use their hands.

        These differences in caring for children is not peculiar to Esan South East Local Government Area alone. For instance, Hake (2000) examined that, the adoption system is practice in some part of Northern Nigeria where a child may be sent to live with a favoured native so that the child might take the advantage of better educational and occupational activities in the urban areas.
