Children's Street Work in Urban Nigeria as Adaptation and Maladaptation to Changing Socioeconomic Circumstances.
Oloko, Beatrice Adenike
International Journal of Behavioral Development, v16 n3 p465-82 Sep 1993
Interviewed children, teachers, women street traders, and professionals about children's street trading, or vending of goods, which is an aspect of children's responsibility training in Nigeria. Concluded that values learned in street trading have become maladaptive with schooling; and street trading maintains traditional values of family and collectivism against the self-orientation inculcated in school.
