Parental Values and Behavior in the Outer Fiji Islands.
West, Mary Maxwell
New Directions for Child Development, v40 p13-25 Sum 1988
Observations from a 1977-78 study of children's cognitive development in Kadavu, Fiji, are discussed in terms of setting, adult work and education, medical care, marriage and residence patterns, infant birth and mortality, and, extensively, cultural values and infant care. It is argued that the observed pattern of infant care fulfills important social functions. (RH)
